KJMR2013 参加報告:(藤本)

The aim of this workshop is to create opportunities for sharing and exchanging research results and practical experiences in this exciting field in an informal atmosphere.
日時: April 13-14th 2013
場所:OIST Seaside house, Okinawa
参加者: およそ50人
口頭発表: 28件





今回本研究室からは, 加藤先生,武富先生, Marc(D1), Angie(M2), 私の計5人という大所帯での参加となりました. 会場は美しい海に面したOISTの施設.





神原先生: 「いつシュノーケリングやるの?今でしょ!


発表自体は現在の自分の力は出しきる一方,質疑応答が悪いというパターン. 聞かれていることは理解したつもりなのに, 理解してもらえるように文章が組み立てられん…質疑応答に関して準備不足でした.また,今考えると誤解されるようなスライド構成にも問題がありました.




Projection-based Mixed Reality for Deformable Surfaces
Parinya Punpongsanon, Daisuke Iwai, Kosuke Sato

しかも順番的には私のひとつ前での発表です. スライド,発表の完成度も高く,結局この発表がベストプレゼンテーション賞を受賞しました. 自身の研究と似た研究が賞を受賞したことに関しては非常に複雑な気持ちです. ともあれ,発表の前後にこの研究の発表者と色々と議論できたのは非常に良い経験になりました.

毎回思っていることですが, 学会発表の準備というのはそれなりに大変な作業ではありますが,会議参加後は, この会議に参加してよかった,という気持ちでいっぱいになります. 嘘ではありません.

Participation at the KJMR2013

by Marc Ericson C. Santos (Doctor 1 Student)

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the Korea-Japan Workshop on Mixed and Augmented Reality with Kato-sensei, Taketomi-sensei, Yuichiro and Angie. The organizers were correct when they described KJMR as a friendly conference aimed at discussing research, especially those who are just starting their thesis. I think the conference has three goals:

1. To discuss research ideas with preliminary results and get advice how to proceed from the top experts in Japan

2. To practice paper presentations and improve papers in preparation for bigger conferences

3. To build human connections (as Kato-sensei recommends)

Indeed, I realized that Japan and Korea has a strong community of researchers in the field of Mixed Reality.

I think my presentation went well and other researchers encouraged me to continue with the approach that I chose. I got two questions from my presentation:

1. Define “Simple” in Simple Authoring Tool for Teachers. – Tomohiro Kuroda (Kyoto U)

Answer: Interface that is simple enough for teachers to use, as opposed to programming-heavy or low-level interfaces.

2. Do you think your “Participatory Design Model” applies to other applications? – Takeshi Kurata (Tsukuba U)

Answer: I’ve thought about this before. But now, I want to use this model for this specific application. Actually, this model is an instance of a model wherein the Developer has two users A and B, with User B also a user of User A. In this case, the developer needs to support 3 connections: Developer <– User A, Developer <– User B and User B <– User A (wherein <– means “user of” relationship.)

The conference was held at Okinawa at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Seaside hotel. Okinawa is famous for the beach, pork and seaweeds. I very happy to have tried so many Okinawa dishes and social activities. Here is my experience of the conference in pictures:

Kato-sensei has so much energy. He hosted the KJMR2013 midnight session!

Because of the weather, the organizers moved the schedule of the snorkeling activity. The three of us enjoyed seeing the Blue Lagoon and feeding tropical fishes.

Kato-sensei said he found a good restaurant that serves Okinawa food. He took as to a steak house. (He did mentioned that Okinawa used to be a US base and is quite americanized.)
