The Project component of this course involves doing a research project and producing a research paper. The paper must be formatted as per submissions to "CHI" – the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, sponsored by the ACM's SIGCHI. Here is the template file describing the CHI publications format.
For the research project, you must conduct some research and write a paper on it. The project should involve doing a comparative evaluation of two or more interfaces or interaction techniques. For details, see Chapter 9 in the text ("Experimental Evaluation") and the slides presented in class ("Empirical Research Methods in Human-Computer Interaction").
Tips on writing and formatting of the research paper are given in the template file, and were elaborated in class.
The paper should be 4-5 formatted pages for undergrads (4441), 7-8 formatted pages for grads (5351). Cite and reference at least six (6) published papers.
Submission. Submit your project paper as PDF and DOC files in Prism using the command 'submit 4441 project project.xxx', where xxx is either pdf or doc.
