Researchers and students of the Opens internal link in current windowInstitute of Databases and Information Systems (DBIS) have developed, implemented, and validated a core set of gestures for collaboratively modeling business processes on multi-touch devices, including tablets (e.g., Apple iPad) and touch screen collaboration systems (e.g., Microsoft PixelSense).  The developed gesture set is based on experimental results as well as common interaction concepts of multi-touch applications. Altogether, gesture-based interactions with multi-touch systems will foster new ways of collaboratively modeling business processes. The project has been realized by Opens internal link in current windowJens Kolb and Opens internal link in current windowManfred Reichert, together with the students Benjamin Rudner, Adam Just, and Sebastian Ronis.
