Overview

Top Research Topics at Symposium on Spatial User Interaction?

  • Human–computer interaction (49.54%)
  • Artificial intelligence (30.96%)
  • Computer vision (28.79%)

Symposium on Spatial User Interaction focuses on Human–computer interaction, Artificial intelligence, Computer vision, Virtual reality and Augmented reality. The concepts on Human–computer interaction presented in the event can also apply to other research fields, including Visualization, Multimedia, Mobile device and Gesture. It dives deep in exploring the relationship between the study of Multimedia and Session (computer science).

Gaze, Interaction technique, Stereoscopy, Selection (genetic algorithm) and Orientation (computer vision) are all subfields of Artificial intelligence research that were featured in it. Topics in Computer vision explored in Symposium on Spatial User Interaction were investigated in conjunction with research in Computer graphics (images) and Haptic technology. Issues in Virtual reality were discussed, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Optical head-mounted display, Immersion (virtual reality), Simulation, Usability and User experience design.

Mixed reality is a focus of the presented Augmented reality works and it dives deep in Mixed reality.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • Gaze + pinch interaction in virtual reality (64 citations)
  • The eyes don't have it: an empirical comparison of head-based and eye-based selection in virtual reality (62 citations)
  • To touch or not to touch?: comparing 2D touch and 3D mid-air interaction on stereoscopic tabletop surfaces (49 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Symposium on Spatial User Interaction:

The conference papers are mainly concerned with subjects like Human–computer interaction, Virtual reality, Computer vision, Artificial intelligence and Augmented reality. In addition to Human–computer interaction research, the published papers aim to explore topics under Window (computing), Variety (cybernetics), Multimedia and Gesture. The conference papers focus on Computer vision but the discussions also offer insight into other areas such as Selection (genetic algorithm) and Word error rate.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Computer vision
  • Human–computer interaction

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The objective of the conference is to combine knowledge in the areas of Human–computer interaction, Virtual reality, Augmented reality, Artificial intelligence and Computer vision. Symposium on Spatial User Interaction addresses concerns in Human–computer interaction which are intertwined with other disciplines, such as Visualization, Mobile device and Gesture. Symposium on Spatial User Interaction explores topics in Virtual reality which can be helpful for research in disciplines like Tracking (particle physics), Optical head-mounted display and Set (psychology).

The featured Augmented reality research zeroes in on concepts in Mixed reality but also tackles themes under Controller (computing). The presented Artificial intelligence study covers related areas such as Object (computer science), Posture recognition and Field of view and also touches on topics like Contextual information and Body surface. Contrast (vision) research are fields of study within Computer vision but they also intertwine with concepts in Illuminance, Ranging and Visor.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • A First Pilot Study to Compare Virtual Group Meetings using Video Conferences and (Immersive) Virtual Reality (5 citations)
  • Evaluating Interaction Cue Purpose and Timing for Learning and Retaining Virtual Reality Training (3 citations)
  • Exploring the Limitations of Environment Lighting on Optical See-Through Head-Mounted Displays (3 citations)

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2020 edition, 2.94% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 21.21% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 18.18% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 18.18% of all publications and 42.42% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
