    The story of how information technology has radically altered our lives and even ourselves has been told many times, in many versions. The radical effects of the process have extended to institutions, social processes, relationships, power structures, work, play, education, and beyond. Although the changes have been varied, affecting the economy, the shape and functioning of organizations, artisti... View full abstract»

    Software development organizations often choose between alternative starting points-requirements or architectures. This invariably results in a waterfall development process that produces artificially frozen requirements documents for use in the next step in the development life cycle. Alternatively, this process creates systems with constrained architectures that restrict users and handicap devel... View full abstract»

    Volumetric displays, which enable true 3D image visualization, hold the promise of enhancing rendered 3D graphics' sense of realism by providing all the depth cues humans require. Although still in the prototype stage, 3D volumetric displays present unique user interface challenges. The authors use physical mock-ups to explore solutions to interaction styles for 3D volumetric displays View full abstract»

    Preserving digital information is plagued by short media life, obsolete hardware and software, slow read times of old media, and defunct Web sites. Herein lies the paradox: we want to maintain digital information intact, but we also want to access this information in a dynamic use context. Failure to address digital preservation problems is analogous to squandering potential professional, personal... View full abstract»

    In a graphical user interface (GUI), interaction is based upon selection and action at positions in the graphical display, guided by graphical content and the user's intent. Printed embedded data GUIs (PEDGUIs) generalize the interaction domain to images and objects in order to enable interaction with passive objects and active displays throughout the user environment. The interface can be almost ... View full abstract»

    Researchers at University of California, Berkeley and Carnegie Mellon University have designed, implemented, and evaluated SILK (Sketching Interfaces Like Krazy), an informal sketching tool that combines many of the benefits of paper-based sketching with the merits of current electronic tools. With SILK, designers can quickly sketch an interface using an electronic pad and stylus, and SILK recogni... View full abstract»

    Mobile computing requires an advanced infrastructure that integrates suitable support protocols, mechanisms, and tools. This mobility middleware should dynamically reallocate and trace mobile users and terminals and permit communication and coordination of mobile entities. In addition, open and untrusted environments must overcome system heterogeneity and grant the appropriate security level. Solu... View full abstract»
