Shareable Dynamic Media in Hybrid Meetings (5+3)

PhD fellowship in the field of Shareable Dynamic Media in Hybrid Meetings (5+3)

The Graduate School at Arts, Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University, in collaboration with Microsoft Research, Cambrige and Participatory Information Technology (PIT), invites applications for a fully-funded PhD fellowship in Shareable Dynamic Media in Hybrid Meetings provided the necessary funding is available. This PhD fellowship is available as of 1 September 2017 for a period of up to three years (5+3). The candidate who is awarded the fellowship must commence his/her PhD degree programme on 1 September 2017. 

The PhD fellowship will be financed by the 3 parties.

The PhD fellowship is advertised within the field of Shareable Dynamic Media in Hybrid Meetings. Hybrid meetings are meetings that include both co-located and remote participants all with access to personal devices (e.g., devices like laptops, tablets, and smartphones). Coordinating these situations is both a technical and social challenge. Challenges include sharing digital content, awareness of participants and exploiting available technological resources. This project will identify the socio-technical issues in hybrid meetings and develop quality metrics to assess the effectiveness of tool support for hybrid meetings. The project will furthermore experimentally explore how and whether the software paradigm of shareable dynamic media can mitigate some of the challenges currently faced in tool support for hybrid meetings. The project is in collaboration with Microsoft Research.

The PhD student must complete the studies in accordance with the valid regulations for the PhD degree programme, currently the Ministerial Order of 27 August 2013 on the PhD degree programme at the universities: http://talent.au.dk/phd/arts/rulesandforms/thephddegreeprogramme/
