There is an old English folk saying that goes, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen." I have a different approach: Do something about the heat. The folk saying would have us accept the poor designs of the world. Why? After all, if people were responsible for the "heat" in the first place, then people should be able to do something about it. Is the kitchen too hot? Redesign it.

The ITS architecture separates applications into four layers. The action layer implements back-end application functions. The dialog layer defines the content of the user interface, independent of its style. Content specifies the objects included in each frame of the interface, the flow of control among frames, and what actions are associated with each object. The style rule layer defines the presentation and behavior of a family of interaction techniques. Finally, the style program layer implements primitive toolkit objects that are composed by the rule layer into complete interaction techniques. This paper describes the architecture in detail, compares it with previous User Interface Management Systems and toolkits, and describes how ITS is being used to implement the visitor information system for EXPO'92.

Wiecha, Charles and Henrion, Max (1987): Linking Multiple Program Views Using a Visual Cache. In: Bullinger, Hans-Jorg and Shackel, Brian (eds.) INTERACT 87 - 2nd IFIP International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction September 1-4, 1987, Stuttgart, Germany. pp. 689-694.

To reduce disorientation in Demos, a non-procedural decision support system, we have built a graphical interface to display models as a hierarchical set of node and arc diagrams. Through empirical studies on user interactions with the diagrams we develop the idea of a visual cache. A visual cache can improve access to information on a display screen by organizing multiple views to take advantage of locality in a user's patterns of information search and exploration. The notion of the visual cache may be a useful principle in designing graphic interfaces to avoid disorientation.

Wiecha, Charles and Henrion, Max (1985): Separating Content from Form: A Language for Formatting On-Line Documentation and Dialog. In: ACM Fourth International Conference on Systems Documentation 1985. pp. 1-7.

Recent research has demonstrated the advantages of separating management of the user interface from the application program. A user interface system should integrate access to on-line help and documentation with other dialog for interacting with the program into a uniform environment. We describe such a user interface management system called ICE, with emphasis on its facilities for authoring networks of frames containing help information and menus for interacting with the application program. Authors can write help and dialog using a language similar to the SCRIBE document processing system, widely used at CMU and elsewhere. But instead of generating hardcopy documents for different printing devices, ICE produces interactive "softcopy" documents consisting of a network of frames combining documentation and interface. In ICE the screen layout of frames and the style of interaction is specified in a format file which is separate from the dialog file that contains the text to appear in the frames. This separation allows the dialog author to write the text without having to worry much about its precise appearance on the screen. The display designer can specify the actual format independently. The same text can be formatted in different ways to make use of different display devices and to allow experimentation with alternative formats and styles of interaction.
