publications

A quite up-to-date general list of my publications can be found on Google Scholar Citations.

On the TU Delft repository you may find publications on which I am a co-author.

The latest one is Generative Research Techniques Crossing Cultures: A Field Study in China, by C Hao, A van Boeijen, M Sonneveld, PJ Stappers, International Journal of Cultural and Creative Industries 4 (3), 04-21. can be found here

The TU Delft metis pages, the university keeps track of my output.

So in the overview below, I will present some highlights on a few key areas of my writing.

Virtual and Adaptive Environments: Applications, implications, and human performance issues. L. J. Hettinger, & Haas, M.W. Mahwah, NJ, Erlbaum:91-110. From the abstract: In this chapter, we discuss some of the advantages this sort of “information correspondence” approach has over the more traditional stimulation correspondence perspective. In particular, we suggest that the Gibsonian concept of information in the specificational sense may provide a useful basis for developing a theoretical understanding of the differences between these approaches, and for developing new VR tools more generally.

This paper describes narrative transitions to support the presentation by serving the user experience. The transitions presented are technically simple, to be used by designers.
