    Although drawings and graphs can express complex concepts, such methods can't be computationally analyzed. Researchers have developed visual approaches and paradigms that scientists can use to capture and represent scientific models in a computational form that they can link to and integrate with data sets and applications. Our work in concept-based user interfaces is related to ideas and visions ... View full abstract»

    Much urban computing research focuses on cities as generic settings and containers of action. However, cities can also be viewed as products of historically and culturally situated practices and flows. When we view urban areas in this context, rather than as collections of people and buildings, infrastructure and practice are closely entwined. The emergence of urban computing as a topic within per... View full abstract»

    A conceptual framework describes three aspects of designing and analyzing pervasive systems in an urban environment. A systematic approach to designing the urban environment as an integrated system of architecture and pervasive technologies requires drawing on knowledge, theory, and methods from the disciplines of architecture and computer science. Key to this interdisciplinary integration is the ... View full abstract»

    The increasing deployment of pervasive computing technologies in urban environments has inspired researchers to explore the intersections between physical, social, and digital domains. The multidisciplinary Just-for-Us project is developing a mobile Web service designed to facilitate new forms of interaction by adapting content to the user's physical and social context. These trends have motivated... View full abstract»

    Sophisticated simulation systems such as UrbanSim model the long-term impacts of transportation and land-use alternatives. Accounting for human values throughout the design process helps in designing interactions that engage both planners and citizens in the decision-making process. Our future work includes further research on applying UrbanSim in real planning contexts and on developing tools to ... View full abstract»
