Design and Analysis of Predictive Sampling of Haptic Signals
Amit Bhardwaj, Subhasis Chaudhuri, Onkar Dabeer
Article No.: 16
DOI: 10.1145/2670533

In this article, we identify adaptive sampling strategies for haptic signals. Our approach relies on experiments wherein we record the response of several users to haptic stimuli. We then learn different classifiers to predict the user response...

An Automated High-Level Saliency Predictor for Smart Game Balancing
George Alex Koulieris, George Drettakis, Douglas Cunningham, Katerina Mania
Article No.: 17
DOI: 10.1145/2637479

Successfully predicting visual attention can significantly improve many aspects of computer graphics: scene design, interactivity and rendering. Most previous attention models are mainly based on low-level image features, and fail to take into...

Depth of Field Affects Perceived Depth in Stereographs
Tingting Zhang, Louise O’hare, Paul B. Hibbard, Harold T. Nefs, Ingrid Heynderickx
Article No.: 18
DOI: 10.1145/2667227

Although it has been reported that depth of field influences depth perception in nonstereo photographs, it remains unclear how depth of field affects depth perception under stereo viewing conditions. We showed participants stereo photographs with...

On the Benefits of Using Constant Visual Angle Glyphs in Interactive Exploration of 3D Scatterplots
Rasmus Stenholt
Article No.: 19
DOI: 10.1145/2677971

Visual exploration of clouds of data points is an important application of virtual environments. The common goal of this activity is to use the strengths of human perception to identify interesting structures in data, which are often not detected...

Biometrics via Oculomotor Plant Characteristics: Impact of Parameters in Oculomotor Plant Model
Oleg Komogortsev, Corey Holland, Alex Karpov, Larry R. Price
Article No.: 20
DOI: 10.1145/2668891

This article proposes and evaluates a novel biometric approach utilizing the internal, nonvisible, anatomical structure of the human eye. The proposed method estimates the anatomical properties of the human oculomotor plant from the measurable...

Analysis of Stereoscopic Images as a New Method for Daylighting Studies
Claudia Moscoso, Barbara Matusiak, U. Peter Svensson, Krzysztof Orleanski
Article No.: 21
DOI: 10.1145/2665078

This article presents the comparison analysis and results of an experiment designed with two presentation modes: real environments and stereoscopic images. The aim of this article is of a methodological nature, with a main objective of analyzing...

The Role of Individual Difference in Judging Expressiveness of Computer-Assisted Music Performances by Experts
Giovanni De Poli, Sergio Canazza, Antonio Rodà, Emery Schubert
Article No.: 22
DOI: 10.1145/2668124

Computational systems for generating expressive musical performances have been studied for several decades now. These models are generally evaluated by comparing their predictions with actual performances, both from a performance parameter and a...
