Meet, join and build
DigiMedia (Digital Media and Interaction Research Centre) presents the DigiMedia Dialogs, an internal event that aims to provide a better integration, promote the connection, facilitate networking and stimulate knowledge transfer and discussion between DigiMedia members in an informal environment.
DigiMedia Dialogs will be monthly online dialogs between DigiMedia researchers and postgraduate students, in the form of Round Tables about one scientific topic. Researchers can bring their own projects and expertise to the table and discuss their perspectives. There will be time for short talks by the invited members, followed by discussion.
The sessions will be online and the link will be shared with all and only DigiMedia members.
These Dialogs take place in the 2nd Friday of the month, from 2 to 3pm. In this page you can find the calendar.
HOW CAN YOU JOIN THE DIALOGS?
There is no need for registration, because the link will be shared with all DigiMedia members.
In a world where interaction with digital devices is inevitable, interaction paradigms have led us in various directions but, in most cases, have seen little change since the 1980´s. What happens when we go beyond mediation through the, widely known, windows, icons, menus and pointing devices and bring the interaction with digital interfaces closer to our actions and behaviour in the physical world?
This talk will hopefully challenge and enable us to put into perspective various studies with different views on how extended reality has helped bridge the digital and physical realm and how it has found its way into specific use cases such as learning and therapeutic contexts.
Image assumes a central role as a visual communication strategy in the area of eHealth, being also considered a primary vehicle of communication in public health, support for personal health monitoring and promotion of well-being and quality of life. Its potential impact and applicability in different digital solutions in these different areas open space for this first edition of DigiMedia Dialogs in which the centrality of image as an eHealth strategy will be discussed. The discussion will also allow the contextualization of three studies with different perspectives of the use of image as a tool for health promotion and education of youth, adults and seniors.
