Prof. Dr. Arzu Çöltekin (University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland Institute of Interactive Technologies)
„Individual and group differences in human-information interaction.“

Abstract: Humans differ in how they process information based on many factors including age, expertise, or cognitive abilities. In this talk, Prof. Dr. Çöltekin presents results from controlled laboratory studies on navigation, memory, learning from visuospatial displays, levels of realism and abstraction in design, and visual illusions with a focus on the individual and group differences. Understanding such differences have implications for customizing, and eventually personalizing, visualization and interaction design for geospatial displays.
