A Virtual Poster Presenter Using Mixed Reality

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10498)


In this demo, we will showcase a platform we are currently developing for experimenting with situated interaction using mixed reality. The user will wear a Microsoft HoloLens and be able to interact with a virtual character presenting a poster. We argue that a poster presentation scenario is a good test bed for studying phenomena such as multi-party interaction, speaker role, engagement and disengagement, information delivery, and user attention monitoring.
