This is a new course based on the two previous seminars "Multimodal perception and interaction (INFOMMI)" and "Advanced multimedia systems (INFOAMS)". Part I will be given by Peter Werkhoven and covers mostly multimodal (multisensory) perception and interaction. This part is about the fascinating world of human visual, auditory and tactile perception and the use of its potential in designing novel interfaces for interacting with virtual worlds. There will be a strong overlap with the INFOMMI seminar (cf. INFOMMI). Part II will be given by Wolfgang Huerst and covers mostly mobile interaction as one particular example of multimodal interaction. This part is about applying the theoretical background of multimodal perception and multisensory input to concrete state-of-the-art examples, such as mobile gaming on devices like smartphones and tablets. There will only be a small overlap between this part and the INFOAMS seminar. If you have already taken the INFOAMS seminar, you can still participate in this course. If you have already taken the INFOMMI seminar, you should contact the instructors before registering for this course in order to verify if you can get credit for it in your study program.
