CHI in the Sky: Role of Human Computer Interaction for Space and Planetary Surface Exploration
Selen Türkay, Abigail Allwood, Ross Brown, Christoph Schank, Luke Nothdurft, Thierry Peynot, and Cael Gallagher
Sunday 3 December, 1:00 pm - 5.00 pm.
This half-day workshop delves into the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Robotics, Sensing Technologies, and Virtual Reality (VR) as tools for exploring the extreme environments of Earth and beyond. The event offers deep insights into advanced robotics for oceanic and space exploration, the detailed capabilities of LiDAR in 3D mapping, sophisticated remote-control systems, and the vast educational potential of VR. We extend an invitation to researchers, practitioners, and enthusiasts from diverse fields including HCI, robotics, AI, engineering, and space exploration. Whether you are a seasoned expert in space missions, an emerging scientist, or simply captivated by cutting-edge technologies, this workshop is designed to foster interdisciplinary dialogue, encourage the sharing of experiences, and spur collaborations aimed at innovating exploration of Earth's most challenging terrains and beyond.
