Radu Vatavu

ȘTEFAN CEL MARE UNIVERSITY OF SUCEAVA

I will talk about new physical-digital realities, including virtual, augmented, and mixed realities, and how they can be designed in order to support and amplify motor and learning skills. I will present several applications in this direction developed in the Machine Intelligence and Information Visualization Lab (MintViz), an interdisciplinary research laboratory within the MANSiD Research Center at the "Ștefan cel Mare" University of Suceava. Radu-Daniel Vatavu is a Professor of Computer Science at the "Ștefan cel Mare" University of Suceava, where he conducts research in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Ambient Intelligence (AmI), Augmented and Mixed Reality (AR/MR), and Entertainment Computing. Prof. Vatavu directs the Machine Intelligence and Information Visualization Lab (MintViz), an interdisciplinary research laboratory within the MANSiD Research Center. While broadly interested in Human-Computer Interaction, he has focused prioritarily on gesture technology for effective interaction with computing systems, from large public displays to personal mobile and wearable devices and gadgets. He is also interested in accessible computing, and his work has often addressed user interface design for young children or people with visual or motor impairments.
