Scale Detection for a priori Gesture Recognition
Caroline Appert, Universite Paris-Sud, CNRS, France
Olivier Bau, Universite Paris-Sud, INRIA, France

Presents an algorithm to estimate the scale of an incomplete gesture input in comparison with a gesture template. Shows how this algorithm can improve users' experience with gesture-based interfaces.

Insight into Goal-Directed Movement Strategies
Karin Nieuwenhuizen, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands
Dzmitry Aliakseyeu, Philips Research Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Jean-Bernard Martens, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands

Proposal of an analysis method that provides more detailed insight into applied movement strategies when using computer input devices. Can assist in the development of input devices and interaction techniques.

Usable Gestures for Mobile Interfaces: Evaluating Social Acceptability
Julie Rico, University of Glasgow, UK
Stephen Brewster, University of Glasgow, UK

This research investigates the importance of social acceptability as a design consideration in developing mobile gesture-based systems. The results describe user perceptions and social influences that affect gesture acceptability.
