Associate Chairs

Area: Theories, Models and User Evaluation
Gilles Bailly
CNRS; Telecom ParisTech; University Paris-Saclay

Brief Bio

Gilles Bailly is researcher at the CNRS institute and Telecom ParisTech Laboratory since 2013. Previously, he was post-doctoral researcher at Cluster of Excellence of multimodal interaction (2013), Max-Planck Institute für Informatics (2012), Telekom Innovation Laboratories (2011-2012). He received his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Grenoble. Gilles Bailly is author or co-author of more than 50 peer-reviewed publications. His work has been awarded the Best Paper Award and Best Paper Honorable Mention at ACM CHI five times since 2012 and one time at ACM MobileHCI (2014). Several of his works suc h as ShoeSense or iSkin received a lot of attention in the medias. He has served on a number of program committees such as ACM CHI or ACM ITS. 

His research is in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), focused on understanding and improving command selection, an important task in HCI. He especially focuses on the transition from novice to expert behaviors. He designs novel interaction techniques, build predictive models of performance and develop optimization methods. Applications include traditional desktop workstations, mobile devices, interactive public displays, gesture-based interaction, wearable computing, augmented reality and interactive visualization.
