报告人：Henry Been-Lirn Duh (Professor of School of Engineering & ICT at University of Tasmania and Director of Human Interface Technology Laboratory Australia)
Augmented Reality(AR) is one of the emerging technologies and prevailing research areas in recent years. It gives numerous opportunities to create new interaction style and user experiences. In such highly integrated area, there are many disciplines contributed to AR research such as computer vision, tracking technologies, human-computer interaction etc. The presentation will give an overview of AR, discuss the current state-of-the-art progress and future research directions. The speaker will also share his view of the AR development in Asia and the world.
Professor Duh is the Director of Human Interface Technology Laboratory Australia (a joint research center between University of Washington and University of Tasmania and partially funded by State of Tasmania) and Professor of School of Engineering & ICT at University of Tasmania. He received his degrees in psychology, industrial design and engineering respectively and did his postdoctoral training in NASA-Johnson Space Centre involving in virtual reality project. He was a faculty member in Nanyang Technological University and Interactive & Digital Media Institute, National University of Singapore.
Prof. Duh is a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Fellow of the British Computer Society, ACM Distinguished Speaker a Senior Member of both ACM and IEEE; the Australian National Representative of IFIP TC on HCI and Entertainment Computing; Steering committee chair of ChineseCHI and steering committee member of IEEE ISMAR. He is the Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Visual Languages and Computing (Elsevier) and Gaming Media and Social Effects Book Series (Springer), an Associate Editor of ACM Entertainment in Computer, editorial board members of HCI book series (Springer), and published more than 100 conference and journal papers in HCI area. Professor Duh has served the program/organizing committee for IEEE/ACM International Symposium of Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR) and IEEE Virtual Reality for years. He is currently a member of Australian Council of Deans of ICT and a member of University Planning Committee, NICTA.
