The paper “Blind People Interacting with Large Touch Surfaces: Strategies for One-handed and Two-handed Exploration”, by Tiago Guerreiro, Kyle Montague, João Guerreiro, Rafael Nunes, Hugo Nicolau and Daniel Gonçalves, was distinguished with the Best Paper Award at ACM ITS 2015 – Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces, ranked with CORE A and h-5 index = 24, held at Funchal, Madeira, Portugal, from November 15th to 18th.
The work was developed in collaboration by researchers from LaSIGE, University of Dundee and INESC-ID.
ITS 2015 Presentation:
As the 10th event in an annual series starting in 2006, ACM ITS has been established as a premier venue for research in the design, development and use of new and emerging tabletop and interactive surface technologies.
Interactive Surfaces increasingly pervade our everyday life, appearing in various sizes, shapes, and application contexts offering a rich variety of ways how to interact with them.
ACM ITS 2015 welcomes original, high-quality research and industry contributions that advance the state-of-the-art in the area of interactive surfaces (including tabletops, large displays, mobile, and mini devices).
The conference embraces innovations in a wide variety of areas including design, software, hardware, understanding of use, and applications or deployments of interactive surfaces.
