1 13:49 180 Abstract In this PhD thesis, we are interested to study how physical space can be used to carry out the interactions between users and ambient environments. The candidate will have to define a language notation for spatial interactions that will serves as a basis for a software tool that will allow a designer to easily specify spatial interactions within ambient environments. This tool will be used to conduct experimental studies to provide guidelines for spatial interactions design.

1 13:49 181 Context Ambient environments aim to embed the physical environment with various sensors and effectors in order to assist users in their daily tasks. In this new type of environments, the Human-Computer Interaction requires the definition of new interaction methods. In particular, the use of location sensors allows to transform the physical space itself into a mean of interaction. For example, the simple act of bringing a tag representing a video file close to another tag representing a screen in the house, may trigger the playing of the video file on the corresponding screen.

1 13:49 183 Objectives The aim of this PhD is to propose a language notation for spatial interaction within ambient environments. We would like to identify the objects characteristics that are related to the physical space (position, speed, acceleration, orientation, distance, etc..) and to identify those that may be relevant to be used in such a language. The candidate will also have to develop a software tool that will encapsulate this language and that will allow a designer to easily specify spatial interactions. The candidate will use this tool to conduct different experiments to evaluate and compare different spatial interaction instances. The results of these experiments will serve to provide guidelines for spatial interaction design.

We would like to identify the characteristics of objects that are related to the physical space (position, speed, acceleration, orientation, distance, etc.) and to identify those that may be relevant to be used in such a language. The candidate will also have to develop a software tool that will integrate this language and that will allow a designer to easily specify spatial interactions. The candidate will use this tool to conduct experiments to evaluate and compare different spatial interaction scenarios. The results of these experiments will serve to provide guidelines for spatial interaction design.
1 13:49 185 Extra information In order to conduct studies on ambient computing, the LIMSI lab got a smart room, IRoom (Intelligent Room), equipped with various sensors and effectors. The IRoom is equipped the UbiSense localization system that can locate different objects or different users in the room's 3D space. The IRoom and the UbiSense system will be used during this PhD to validate the proposed language and to conduct the experiments.
