Keynote Speaker

Anke Huckauf is a chair of General Psychology at Ulm University, Germany. She did her PhD on crowding effects in peripheral vision in 1996. After working at the universities of Gdansk, Poland, CNRS Marseille, France, Weimar, Germany, Anke Huckauf did her habilitation degree at the University of Erlangen-N├╝rnberg, Germany. Her research is concerned back-to-back with basic and applied perception and with gaze and pupil control. Currently, the focus is on the eye as central body-part which changes in order to perceive and which in turn encounters changes due to perception. In the lecture, I will point out effects of emotion and arousal on perception as well as on pupil dilation and, in several other studies, on the perception of time and on depth with varying pupil sizes. Critical arguments concerning pros and cons of the usage, the usefulness, and the usability of adaptive user interfaces based on fixations and pupil dilations will be discussed.
