Abstract:


    Beginning with Sketchpad and continuing to Macintosh and beyond, designers and users of interactive graphics systems and applications have refined the nature of the working graphical interface between a person and a computer. The panel will trace the changing uses of graphical symbols and icons; address the evolution of concurrency in windows, menus and task activation; examine mechanisms for gaining attention and prompting for reactions; and focus on reducing visual, physical and psychological stress via improved screen design and applied principles of graphical presentation.
