Abstract:


    WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

    Systems designers and programmers with experience in basic graphics and interactive computing. individuals with substantial experience in designing user-computer interfaces will find the lecture pace to be slow. Attendees should consider the Monday companion tutorial “Psychology for User Computer Interfaces.”

    ABSTRACT

    The tutorial will provide requisite background for designers of user-computer interfaces. A top-down design methodology is presented first, followed by a discussion of the interaction devices and interaction techniques which can be used as a part of an interface. Important considerations in the visual presentation of information, such as coding, searching, and structure. are discussed. Design criteria that can be used to evaluate existing or proposed user interfaces are presented and illustrated. and available software tools for implementing user-computer interfaces are described. The lectures will be illustrated with slides and videotapes of interaction devices and techniques.
