Backstage Pass Students Invited to ACHI 2018
The Eleventh International Conference on Advances in Computer-Human Interaction, ACHI 2018, was proposed as a result of a paradigm shift in the most recent achievements and future trends in human interactions with increasingly complex systems.
The conference which is organized by the International Academy Research and Industry Association (IARIA) happens every year and this year it will take place from 25th March to 29th March 2018 in Rome, Italy.
Major topics covered during the event includes: Graphical user interfaces, virtual reality and 3D interfaces, visualization techniques, organic user interfaces, Haptic interfaces, cognitive models, user modelling and user focus, interaction of computers with children, designs for aging population, human-robot interaction, human-web interaction, computer games, Gaming, serious games, social impact of gaming etc. In short, the key focus of the conference would be about the computer human interaction in various scenarios.
This year 2 students of Backstage Pass Institute of Gaming and Technology, PB Vatsan and P Urukram have been invited by the International Academy to present their research paper ‘Games that dust particles play’.
The encyclopaedic research paper of our students falls under the category of ‘Serious Games’ and they will speak about simulation for dust explosion, how the explosion happens, and virtual creation of the environment. They will be giving an in-depth theoretical presentation of their paper where all the factors on dust explosion pentagon (fuel, Oxygen, Heat, dispersion, confinement) are thoroughly evaluated and modelled.
Paper presentation options and session types will offer our students the prospect to share their work, discuss key issues in the field, and build relationships with attendees.
Surya P, Founder and CEO of Backstage Pass Institute of Gaming and Technology says “We have a bunch of creative students at Backstage Pass, who always want to learn and explore something new. Vatsan and Urukram are among them. This is a great opportunity for both of them to express their thoughts and effort they had put in”.
