The award was for 'Best Presentation Award' for a paper submitted at the IEEE ISI Conference. Since it was an online video presentation, we went the extra mile to make it polished and engaging all the time.
"Discerning user activity in VR with accelerometer observations" is the title of the paper, written by Max Smith-Creasey, Jonathan Roscoe and I. We explore how malicious actors may be able to eavesdrop on a virtual reality session, by tracking the physical movements of a user, just by looking at data from a mobile phone or a smartwatch that has been compromised. In the end, we discuss the mechanisms for improving security around this challenge.
