Information Systems and Computer Graphics

At CSIG, we are particularly well positioned to address complex and difficult engineering problems facing industry, as we have the expertise to analyse, design, mine and implement large information systems ‑ using best practices for designing, developing and testing software engineering ‑, and also to provide the visual and user interaction components such a solution may require.

Furthermore, at CSIG we are also strongly committed to training young researchers and professionals. Presently, our researchers come from the University of Porto, Polytechnic of Porto, University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, Universidade Aberta and University of Minho.

The effects of body position on Reflexive Motor Acts and the sense of presence in virtual environments

Authors
Bessa, M; Melo, M; Augusto de Sousa, A; Vasconcelos Raposo, J;

Publication
Computers and Graphics (Pergamon)

Abstract
The purpose of this study was to measure the subject's sense of presence while they performed a task (riding a bicycle downhill) in a virtual reality (VR) environment and to compare it by body position (standing vs. sitting) and gender. The sample consisted of 35 subjects (19 male and 16 female) between 17 and 33 years of age. A translated and validated Portuguese version of the Igroup Presence Questionnaire (IPQp) and the Reflexive Motor Acts (RMAs), based on direct observation, were used as metrics. The results showed significant differences between body position at the level of Experienced Realism, Spatial Presence and Overall Sense of Presence. When measuring RMAs, it was demonstrated that people in the sitting position presented a higher frequency. We concluded that body position influences perceptions of credibility, which has an impact on the sense of presence. No differences were identified between the genders. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

Image-type representation: A preliminary study on preferences of users with intellectual disabilities

Authors
Rocha, T; Bessa, M; Bastardo, R; Magalhaes, L;

Publication
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF HUMAN-COMPUTER STUDIES

Abstract
Previous findings have shown that users with intellectual disabilities navigate the Web more easily and with greater interest when images are used to represent hyperlinks (Rocha, 2008; 2014; Rocha et al., 2012). Although images can be better for navigation purposes, there is a need to understand how these images should be designed to enhance users' interaction with digital content for this particular group of people. The purpose of this study is to measure the user's preference for image-type representation (Object, Action and Universe), within four different categories (music, movies, sports, games). The sample consisted of 20 individuals with intellectual disabilities, their ages ranging from 22 to 49 years old. The results showed that they preferred less complex images, namely object representative images, and that categories had no effect.

A Technological Proposal Using Virtual Worlds to Support Entrepreneurship Education for Primary School Children

Authors
Pereira, A; Martins, P; Morgado, L; Fonseca, B; Esteves, M;

Publication
Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing

Abstract
The importance of entrepreneurship education from elementary school through college is now recognized as an important aspect of children’s education. At the level of basic education, the development of entrepreneurial activities using Information and Communication Technologies, specifically three-dimensional virtual worlds, is seen as an area with potential for exploration. The research presented herein is a model that allows the development of entrepreneurial activities in virtual worlds with children attending primary education. This model allows the preparation, monitoring and development of entrepreneurship education activities in virtual worlds, including safe interaction in virtual worlds between the children and the community. For this, we identified a set of requirements that would allow the teaching and learning of entrepreneurship in virtual worlds, from which a technological model was implemented through an application, EMVKids (after the Portuguese expression “Empreendedorismo em Mundos Virtuais com Crianças”, entrepreneurship with children in virtual worlds). © Springer International Publishing AG 2018.
