    This is the first of two special issues on human factors in computer graphics. It was initially intended to be one issue. However, due to the very large response to the call for papers (14 were submitted) and the high quality of the submissions (seven were accepted for publication), the decision was made to extend the contributions over two issues. The December issue of IEEE CG&A will contain the remainder of the articles. View full abstract»

    An organization of interaction techniques, based on the user tasks for which the techniques are used, is proposed. It is suggested that task requirements limit the set of techniques that can be considered for a particular application. The characteristics of a variety of techniques are enumerated and many of the considerations important to their effectiveness are discussed. Relevant experimental and experiential comparisons are tabulated. View full abstract»

    “What we are really doing (in computer graphics) is some kind of communication with a person,” said David Evans of Evans and Sutherland Computer Corporation, speaking to a large panel audience at Siggraph 84 last summer. “You have to know something about the person, as well as something about the picture, if you are going to communicate successfully.” View full abstract»
