HCI Challenges in Human Movement Analysis

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 11749)


Assessing human bodies’ postures and positions enables to design new interaction techniques, to understand users’ performances and to evaluate ergonomics of devices. In addition to the applications for improving Human-Computer Interaction, human movement analysis is at the heart of other types of usages including sports, rehabilitation, gesture recognition, etc. This workshop aims at providing a platform for researchers and designers to discuss the challenges related to the processing (e.g., data collection, treatment, interpretation, recognition) of human movement (e.g., motor skills, amplitude of movements, limitations). We expect to identify the main challenges to be addressed and come up with a research agenda to give HCI new perspectives and suggest promising directions.
