Mandy Keck is a post-doctoral researcher at the chair of Media Design at Technische Universität Dresden and lecturer at the University of Applied Science in Dresden (FHD). Her research and teaching is focused on data visualization, visual search interfaces and interaction design. She has many years of experience in the research of information visualization in different cooperation projects with industrial partners. Mandy Keck organized sessions and workshops at various conferences. At the last AVI conference, she was co-organizer of the workshop on Visual Interfaces for Big Data Environments in Industrial Applications.
Dietrich Kammer is a professor for Visual Engineering (Technische Visualistik) at the University for Applied Sciences in Dresden (Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Dresden). His teaching and research is focused on visualization and interaction techniques and technologies. During his PhD, he developed a formalization for multitouch-gestures based on a semiotic analysis framework. His current research is focused on multidimensional visualization methods in the domain of machine learning and interaction techniques for novel, elastic displays. Dietrich Kammer was co-organizer of the Workshop on Engineering Gestures for Multimodal Interfaces at EICS 2014 and has been reviewing papers for ACM conferences such as EICS, UIST, and TEI since 2013. At AVI 2018, Dietrich Kammer organized a workshop on Visual Interfaces for Big Data Environments in Industrial Applications.
Alfredo Ferreira is an Assistant Professor at the University of Lisbon. He received his Ph.D. (2009) degree in Information Systems and Computer Science from Instituto Superior Técnico, Technical University of Lisbon. He is a researcher of the Visualization and Intelligent Multimodal Interfaces Group at INESC-ID Lisboa, working on multimodal and natural interfaces, virtual, augmented, mixed and extended reality and 3D object retrieval. He participated in several national and EC funded projects. He was a member of the organizing committees of INTERACT 2011 and Eurographics 2016 conferences and general chair of SMI 2018 and EuroVis 2019 conferences. He also organized the EG 3DOR Workshop in 2012 and 2016, and the Collaboration Meets Interactive Surfaces workshop in 2013 and 2014. Currently, he is general chair of the ACM ISS 2020 conference.
Andrea Giachetti is an Associate Professor at the University of Verona where he teaches Computer Graphics, Visualization, and Human Computer Interaction. His research is focused on different aspects of Visual Computing, including Image Processing and Computer Vision, Modelling and Shape analysis, Interaction in Virtual and Augmented Reality. He participated in several national and EC funded projects. He has been STAR Chair at the Eurographics 2019 conference, local chair of 3DV 2018, program chair of STAG 2017 and 3DOR 2016. He organized summer schools and several contests on 3D Shape Retrieval, also related to gesture recognition. He has been Doctoral Consortium Chair at CHItaly 2017. He is currently president of the Eurographics Italian Chapter.
Rainer Groh graduated from Technische Universität Ilmenau with a degree in scientific instrumentation and from the University of Art and Design Halle with a degree in industrial design. He received his doctor’s degree at Technische Universität Ilmenau and is currently professor for media design at Technische Universität Dresden. The group of Rainer Groh in Dresden has over 10 years of experience in teaching and researching interaction design. Research efforts are concentrated on extending the repertoire of methodical tools and rules of design by taking multi-modality into account. Rainer Groh organized summer schools in Germany and UAE, and workshops and sessions at various conferences and also two workshops at AVI conference.
