How Stress and Mental Workload are Connected (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Alsuraykh, N. H., Wilson, M. L., Tennent, P., & Sharples, S. (2019). How Stress and Mental Workload are Connected. In PervasiveHealth'19: Proceedings of the 13th EAI International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare, 371-376. doi:10.1145/3329189.3329235

Mental Workload (MWL) can be both good and bad; we can thrive under high MWL, or our performance can drop if the demands become either too low or too high. Similarly, stress is not always bad, short term stress can be beneficial to overcome a challen... Read More about How Stress and Mental Workload are Connected.

From director's cut to user's cut: to watch a brain-controlled film is to edit it (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Ramchurn, R., Martindale, S., Wilson, M. L., & Benford, S. (2019). From director's cut to user's cut: to watch a brain-controlled film is to edit it. In CHI '19: proceedings of the 2019 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systemsdoi:10.1145/3290605.3300378

Introducing interactivity to films has proven a longstanding and difficult challenge due to their narrative-driven, linear and theatre-based nature. Previous research has suggested that Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) may be a promising approach but...

Tracking the Consumption of Home Essentials (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Fuentes, C., Porcheron, M., Fischer, J. E., Costanza, E., Malik, O., & Ramchurn, S. D. (2019). Tracking the Consumption of Home Essentials. doi:10.1145/3290605.3300869

Predictions of people's behaviour increasingly drive interactions with a new generation of IoT services designed to support everyday life in the home, from shopping to heating. Based on the premise that such automation is difficult due to the conting... Read More about Tracking the Consumption of Home Essentials.

The Multi-Stage Experience: the Simulated Work Task Approach to Studying Information Seeking Stages (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Huurdeman, H., Kamps, J., & Wilson, M. L. (2019). The Multi-Stage Experience: the Simulated Work Task Approach to Studying Information Seeking Stages

This experience paper shines more light on a simulated work task approach to studying information seeking stages. This explicit multistage approach was first utilized in Huurdeman, Wilson, and Kamps [14] to investigate the utility of search user inte...
