11 Feb 2021 20:28 | iSchools News (Administrator)

Another installment in the European iSchools Doctoral Seminars Series has been scheduled for Friday, Feb. 26, 2021. The series was launched last year as a forum for doctoral students to present their work. 

The Feb. 26 presentations follow: 

Jakub Fiala is a postgraduate student of Information Science, Faculty of Arts, Charles University, Prague,  where he also works as a lecturer and New Media Studies coordinator. 

Abstract: Self-tracking and its influence on one’s behaviour, experience and motivation to change – commonly referred to using the title of my presentation - is my main research interest. Indeed, results give an account not only about one’s inner state, but also of broader implications and the relationship to society.

Filipa Ramalho is a PhD candidate at the University of Porto, Portugal, and she is also a researcher at INESC TEC.  She studied Information Science (Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree).  She then worked on projects as a business processes and information systems consultant for eight years with companies from different industrial sectors.

Abstract: Immersive applications immersive technologies are being developed to support and enhance human-worker at the factories. This doctoral research aims to study the combination of immersive technologies (as a way to convey real/virtual visual information), centered in the human-worker (as the crucial key user) as an information organization/retrieval problem. This talk will present this doctoral research project.

The presentations take place Feb. 26 via Zoom, 14:00-16:00 CET. See our Series webpage for details, and also to view videos of past presentations.

Future installments will be announced on the iSchools events calendar.
