  • N. Marques, JPB Barraca, A. Zúquete, ANRW.PT 2020 Prize: Best Technical Paper and IETF Relevance Mention, The Annual ISOC.PT ANR Workshop and Prize is an initiative of the Portuguese Chapter of the Internet Society (ISOC.PT) that aims to promote applied research in computer networks and Internet in Portugal, by distinguishing applied research work carried out in Portugal by advanced students or other members of the R&D community, from Portuguese Universities, Research Centers or Industrial R&D Labs. This work describes an interesting proposal for a solution that can integrate the Captive Portal paradigm, which facilitates enrolment of new network subscribers, with the standard practices of security for 802.11 networks. The contribution relies on a new EAP-compliant protocol (Extended Authentication Protocol for Secure Hotspots, EAP-SH) that bridges both approaches, providing a solution for a flexible and effective authentication framework., 01-04-2020

  • L. Leite, V. Orvalho, AnimActor: Understanding Interaction with Digital Puppetry using Low-Cost Motion Capture, Character animation has traditionally relied on complex and time- consuming key frame animation or expensive motion capture techniques. These methods are out of reach for low budget animation productions. We present a low-cost performance-driven technique that allows real-time interactive control of puppets for performance or film animation. In this paper we study how users can interpret simple actions like, walking, with different puppets. The system was deployed for the Xbox Kinect and shows how low-cost equipment’s can provide a new mean for motion capture representation. Last, we performed a pilot experiment animating silhouettes and 3D puppets in real-time, based on body movements interpreted by non-expert artists, representing different Olympic Sports that vary on visual representation for other participants to identify. As a result, interaction with 2D puppets needs more interpretation than with 3D puppets., 01-11-2011
