3TU.H&T/SIKS Autumn School

19 October 2015
Woudschoten Conferentiecentrum, Zeist
4TU Delft
4TU Eindhoven
4TU Twente
4TU Wageningen

3TU.H&T and the SIKS Research School are organising their Autumn School for PhDs 2015.

This will be held from 19-21 October in  Woudschoten Hotel & Conferentiecentrum  in Zeist.


For those who have registered, here is:

*What to prepare*

Throughout the PhD school, you will work on various assignments. Therefore, we would like you to bring your laptop. Furthermore, to help break the ice, we are having pre-dinner Pitch & Show sessions  for everyone on Monday and Tuesday. Please prepare a 2-minute pitch (no slides) in which you introduce yourself and your research! After the pitches, there will be some time to further discuss and demo your work in an informal setting. So if you have a cool demo of your work, please bring it along!

Lastly, if you were considering bringing a card/board game then certainly pack it with the rest of your stuff. There might be others who would enjoy a game in the evenings.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

These are the topics of the 2015 School - one day will be dedicated to each topic.

Psychology 2.0 Research into the Wild      The field of psychology is rapidly evolving. Innovations in mobile (sensing) technology enable us to study human behaviour, cognition, and physiology in daily life. This course will introduce Experience Sampling Methodology (ESM) to study human well-being and health outside the lab, in our natural context. We will discuss research opportunities, practical application areas, methodological challenges and ethical implications. Because ESM is a labour intensive research methodology, it is important to perform such studies as efficiently as possible. We will introduce sequential analysis, a statistical technique that allows researchers to analyse their data repeatedly while data collection is in progress. This method allows researchers to collect informative data much more efficiently.

Lecturers include: Wijnand IJsselsteijn, Femke Beute


 Social Signal Processing       This part of the course will focus on core elements of social signal processing. Students will learn about the basic theories of social signalling, how to use signal processing and machine learning techniques to extract behavioural cues and predict socially relevant phenomena such as personality, how people relate to one another. More emphasis will be placed on looking at audio and visual sensing data in relation to non-verbal behaviour. The format of the day will consist of both lectures and practical sessions.

Lecturers include: Hayley Hung, Dirk Heylen and Khiet Truong  


* Wednesday, 21 October

 Research and Design Methods for Interactive Intelligence       This course focuses on the design of systems that interact with their users (and other stakeholders) in an intelligent manner. In order to do so the design of such systems must be founded in knowledge about people in general, and particular stakeholders especially. We will present various research & design methods to tackle challenges in personalization, usability, and adoption of interactive technology. Furthermore, we will discuss how the design of interactive technology can affect – i.e. hinder or support – human needs and values.

Lecturers include: Mark Neerincx, Marieke Peeters, Joachim de Greeff
