Human-Computer Interaction International 2011

From 7/9/2011 to 7/14/2011, I participated in the Fourteenth International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction in Orlando, Florida.

I gave a poster presentation of my research on sensory data and the characteristics of dance expressing joy, sadness, and anger, entitled “Relations between Kansei Information and Movement Characteristics in Point-light Displays of Dance”.
There were many interesting sessions that presented cutting-edge research results, including “Kansei Value Creation”, “Emotions in HCI”, “Relationality Design”, “Embodied Interaction and Communication”, “Motion Modeling”, “Digital Museum”, “3D Technology for HMD and LCD: a Human Interface”, “Visualization Methods, Techniques and Applications”, “Signal and Image Processing for HCI”, and “Conversational Robots in HCI”.
My participation in this conference was supported by the JSPS “Institutional Program for Young Researcher Overseas Visits”.

Digital Humanities is the annual international conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO), which was held at  King’s College London last year and will be held at  university of Hamburg, Germany, next year.

In this conference, I has made a presentation on "A Labanotation Editing Tool for Description and Reproduction of Stylized Traditional Dance Body Motion" and was honored to receive the 2011 Bursary Award, for young researchers, from the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations. Therefore, I would like to thank Prof. Hachimura and the GCOE program with all of you directly and indirectly giving me comments and suggestions in my research so that my research paper was qualified.
