    Caroline Jay, a research assistant working on SASWAT project with the Human Centred Web Lab in the IMG, has won the second prize of the best PhD paper in research students' symposium 2007.

    Caroline's paper, "Modeling the effects of delayed haptic and visual feedback in a collaborative virtual environment", is published in ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction (TOCHI). The paper looks at how people are affected by the delayed feedback of their actions in Collaborative virtual environments (CVEs). Explicitly, it presents a study that quantifies how increasing levels of latency affect visual and haptic feedback in a collaborative target acquisition task. The results demonstrate that haptic feedback in particular is very sensitive to low levels of delay. Whilst latency affects visual feedback from 50 ms, it impacts on haptic task performance 25 ms earlier, and causes the haptic measures of performance deterioration to rise far more steeply than visual.

    Congratulations to Caroline.
