Title: Navigating large information spaces on wall displays using mobile devices

Advisors: Anastasia Bezerianos ( & Olivier Chapuis (

Brief description: The internship will be an introduction to research in Human Computer Interaction (HCI), focusing on mobile and wall display interaction. The student will work on the design and implementation of interaction techniques that combine these two technologies to navigate, search, compare, and generally explore large collections of virtual objects, as well as ways to visually represent the results of these interactions. Finally, the student will learn about HCI evaluation methods and, ideally, will conduct an experiment to test the developed techniques with human subjects. The candidate will NOT need to conduct research on content storage, database querying and retrieval, etc.
