Cross-device interaction, distributed user interfaces, cross-media interaction, end-user development and human-computer interaction
During my master thesis: "Fluid Cross-Media and Cross-Device Interaction in the Office of the Future", we investigated related work in the domain of cross-device and cross-media interaction. Based on our background research, we came up with a framework to combine both research domains in an office of the future. Building further upon my master thesis, my PhD thesis was born: "Towards User-defined Cross-Device and Cross-Media Interaction". While in my master thesis we focussed on an office setting, in my PhD thesis we plan to broaden this version of our framework to a more general setting. In addition, our main objective will not only be to focus on how to allow developers to build such cross-device and cross-media interaction environments but also to allow end users to create their customised interactive environments based on a dedicated authoring tool.
