    Ephraim P. Glinert is with the Dept. of Computer Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic  Institute. His research interests include multi paradigm and graphical programming environments, nontextual human-computer interfaces, computers and the physically handicapped, and CAD environments for VLSI design. He holds the PhD from the University  of Washington, where he was an IBM graduate fellow for two years. Together with his graduate students, he has designed and implemented numerous visual environments, including PICT (which formed the topic of his dissertation), SunPict, PC-TILES, C2, MAGNEX and the OOCADE user interface. He has lectured widely on his research, including an intensive graduate-level course in the Dept. of Computer Engineering at National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan in the summer of 1987. He is the author of the chapter “Nontextual Programming Environments” in the volume Principles of Visual Programming Systems edited by S.-K. Chang, which will be published later this year by Prentice Hall. He is also currently editing a tutorial on visual computing environments for the IEEE Computer Society Press. In 1987, he was elected Vice Chair of the ACM Special Interest Group for Computers and the Physically Handicapped (SIGGRAPH).
