Meeting Viz


With the widespread of videoconferencing systems, we have more opportunities to participate remote meetings than before. Regardless of remote meeting or face-to-face meeting, it is important to provide each participant with an opportunity to express her/his opinion in order to reflect opinions of all the participants in the outcome of the discussion. However, many facilitators tend to fail to provide participants with oppotunities for expressing their opinions, because it is difficult to know who spoke to whom and how much in remote settings where non-verbal information is difficult to convey. To address this issue, we propose a system that visualizes the flow of conversation in a videoconference in real time. We conducted an evaluation task, confirming that the proposed system could support users to understand who spoke to whom and how much in videoconferences.
