Doris Hausen is pursuing her PhD at the Human-Computer Interaction Group at the University of Munich (LMU) since 2009. With a background in computer science, she looks at different interaction styles for Peripheral Interaction (e.g. tangibles, freehand gestures and touch gestures) to broaden the design space for Peripheral Interaction.

Saskia Bakker is an assistant professor at the Industrial Design department of the Eindhoven University of Technology. In 2013, she obtained her PhD on the topic of design for Peripheral Interaction. She combines tangible interaction and auditory displays and has explored primary school classrooms extensively as a target context for Peripheral Interaction design.

Elise van den Hoven is associate professor at the School of Design, Faculty of Design, Architecture & Building at the University of Technology, Sydney and at the Industrial Design department of the Eindhoven University of Technology. Elise's design research activities center around physical, tangible and embodied interaction and supporting everyday human memory.

Andreas Butz is a professor of Computer Science at the University of Munich (LMU). He has been active in HCI and Ubiquitous Computing research for more than 15 years and his group at LMU investigates a variety of novel interaction paradigms for the decades after the desktop PC.

Berry Eggen is a professor of Industrial Design at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Over the years he led design research groups in the areas of information ergonomics, multimodal interaction (including lighting and sound) and intelligent interfaces. His current activities include interaction design research for intelligent Lighting, Health, and Smart Mobility.
