AUI 2016: 1 st Asian Workshop on User Interface

The 1st AUI workshop will be held on October 20, 2016, (just after UIST 2016) in the University of Tokyo. The aim of this workshop is to provide opportunities especially for Asian students to share and exchange their research results and practical experiences in an informal atmosphere. Any topics related to UI (user interface) as well as HCI (human-computer interaction) are welcome. Note that AUI is non-archival and thus allows both preliminary work (or work-in- progress) and resubmission of material previously shown at any other conferences.

Submission Guidelines

(Submission deadline is passed)

All submissions must include up to two pages extended abstract (not counting references). The abstract describes the research problem, main contribution, and its potential benefits. The abstract must be formatted using the SIGCHI Extended Abstract Format (use the Word Template or Latex Template). Abstract need to be submitted as a PDF. Submission Site: Easy Chair AUI2016

Note: submissions are not anonymous.

Presenters of accepted submissions will have 12 min slot (including questions).

Attendees are also encouraged to bring corresponding posters to be displayed during the workshop for more interactive and intensive discussion.

Out of Body Interactions

Jessica Cauchard, Ph.D., Stanford University


Mobile devices have become ubiquitous over the last decade, changing the way we interact with technology and with one another. Mobile devices were at first personal devices carried in our hands or pockets. They are now changing form to fit our lifestyles and an increasingly demanding amount and diversity of information to display. My research focuses on the design, development, and evaluation of novel interaction techniques with mobile devices using a human-centered approach. In this presentation, I will in particular focus on autonomous mobile devices. I will discuss how autonomous devices such as drones re-invent our understanding of ubiquitous computing and present my current research on collocated natural human-drone interaction.


Dr. Jessica Cauchard recently completed a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Stanford University in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. She will be joining the faculty of Computer Science and Communication at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya in Israel early 2017. Jessica’s research focuses on novel interaction techniques for mobile, and ubiquitous computing. She completed her PhD at the University of Bristol, UK in 2013 in Human-Computer Interaction. She received a Magic Grant for her work on interacting with drones by the Brown Institute for Media Innovation in 2015. She has also received various scholarships for academic excellence. After completing an MSc in Computer Science at Sheffield University, UK, she specialized in Virtual Reality (VR) systems for public spaces, such as museums. She then worked on EU research projects looking at how VR can improve our future workspaces.
