Seminar: Disorientation remediation in web interfaces: 2D vs flattened 3D

May 13, 2019, 9:30-17:00
ENS, 29 rue d’Ulm, Salle Langevin
Registration required

We will study web interfaces using spatial metaphor in 2D and flat 3D in regards to cognitive sciences and theories and practices of graphic design. We are particularly interested in interfaces that allow users to access, annotate and organize multimedia documentary corpus. The aim will be to study the organizational representation modes implemented in this interface, the strategies proposed the user to develop relationships between documents and to explore the corpus. We want to analyze some web design artifacts and develop a conceptual work around « web disorientation » with the help of cognitive sciences.

This seminar is proposed by EnsadLab and the Institut Jean Nicod (ENS) in the framework of the Carnot Cognition action DIS.

Presentations will be in English (morning) and French (afternoon).
