    System designers and programmers with experience in basic graphics and interactive computing. Attendees should con- sider the Tuesday companion tutorial, “How to Design User- Computer Interfaces.”

    ABSTRACT

    This tutorial covers the application of cognitive psychology, visual perception, and time perception to the design of user- computer interfaces and aspects of the emotional impact of computer system interaction. How people think, learn about. view, and react to computer systems will be discussed. The tutorial will include such topics as when menus are a good technique, what role a CRT display plays, what makes a system friendly, and how interactivity is measured. The emphasis is on pragmatics and application, not on theory. User inter- faces to several experimental and commercial systems will be shown and analyzed to illustrate the ideas and concepts.
