Alissa N. Antle is an assistant professor of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University. Her research interests focus on embodied forms of interaction including tangibles and whole body interactive environments. Her recent work explores the application of embodied image schemata and conceptual metaphors in interaction design for tangibles and interactive environments, and investigates the role of complementary and epistemic actions in understanding how we “think with our hands” using tangible and multi-touch tabletops.

Paul Marshall is a research fellow at the University of Warwick, working on a project looking at participation in healthcare environment engineering. His research interests centre on the role of physical and spatial factors in mediating interactions with and around technology.

Elise van den Hoven is an assistant professor at Industrial Design, Eindhoven University of Technology. She has been working on embodied interaction by combining tangible interaction with a user-centered design research approach. Her work centers around everyday remembering and physicality.
