HURTER, Christophe, Lesbordes, Rémi, Letondal, Catherine, Vinot, Jean-Luc and Conversy, Stephane (2012): Strip'TIC: exploring augmented paper strips for air traffic controllers. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces 2012. pp. 225-232.

The current environment used by French air traffic controllers mixes digital visualization such as radar screens and tangible artifacts such as paper strips. Tangible artifacts do not allow controllers to update the system with the instructions they give to pilots. Previous attempts at replacing them in France failed to prove efficient. This paper is an engineering paper that describes Strip'TIC, a novel system for ATC that mixes augmented paper and digital pen, vision-based tracking and augmented rear and front projection. The system is now working and has enabled us to run workshops with actual controllers to study the role of writing and tangibility in ATC. We describe the system and solutions to technical challenges due to mixing competing technologies.

HURTER, Christophe, Cowan, Benjamin R., Girouard, Audrey and Riche, Nathalie Henry (2012): Active progress bar: aiding the switch to temporary activities. In: Proceedings of the HCI12 Conference on People and Computers XXVI 2012. pp. 99-108.

Can we design an interface to help people make use of the idle time spent looking at progress bars? We propose to augment progress bars with user-controlled functionalities facilitating the switch to temporary activities. We propose a taxonomy of waiting period contexts and possible temporary tasks, then report on participatory design sessions, and a follow-up survey. Finally we describe an early prototype of active progress bar and report a small controlled experiment used to identify the impact of the tool on primary task satisfaction. The findings suggest that Active Progress Bars lead to significantly higher satisfaction when compared to a control condition.

Chevalier, Fanny, Dragicevic, Pierre and HURTER, Christophe (2012): Histomages: fully synchronized views for image editing. In: Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 281-286.

We present Histomages, a new interaction model for image editing that considers color histograms as spatial rearrangements of image pixels. Users can select pixels on image histograms as they would select image regions and directly manipulate them to adjust their colors. Histomages are also affected by other image tools such as paintbrushes. We explore some possibilities offered by this interaction model, and discuss the four key principles behind it as well as their implications for the design of feature-rich software in general.

HURTER, Christophe, Girouard, Audrey, Riche, Nathalie and Plaisant, Catherine (2011): Active progress bars: facilitating the switch to temporary activities. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 1963-1968.

In this paper, we seek to find a better way of effective task management when a progress bar interrupts user's primary activity. We propose to augment progress bars with user controlled functionalities facilitating the switch to temporary activities. We detail a taxonomy of waiting period contexts and possible temporary tasks, then report on 5 participatory design, and a follow-up survey of 96 respondents. Finally we describe an early prototype of active progress bars, and report on initial use.

Cordeil, Maxime, HURTER, Christophe and Conversy, Stephane (2011): Amélioration du circuit visuel des contrôleurs aériens pour relier les données entre visualisations en utilisant des transitions animées. In: Proceedings of the 2011 Conference of the Association Francophone dInteraction Homme-Machine 2011. p. 9.

Several separate displays are used by Air Traffic Controllers, such as radar view, flight lists view or paper strips. In order to link the information between these views and keep focus on a subset of flights, controllers are required to do visual operations (eye gaze, analysis of visual properties etc.). This process can be disruptive when traffic increases and when visualizations display large amounts of objects. In this paper we propose the use of animated transitions to replace the visual paths controllers take. We discuss this technique and show results of a predictive evaluation that suggests an improvement in users' performance.

Bothorel, Gwenael, Serrurier, Mathieu and HURTER, Christophe (2011): Utilisation d'outils de visual data mining pour l'exploration d'un ensemble de règles d'association. In: Proceedings of the 2011 Conference of the Association Francophone dInteraction Homme-Machine 2011. p. 12.

Data Mining aims at extracting maximum of knowledge from huge databases. It is realized by an automatic process or by data visual exploration with interactive tools. Automatic data mining extracts all the patterns which match a set of metrics. The limit of such algorithms is the amount of extracted data which can be larger than the initial data volume. In this article, we focus on association rules extraction with Apriori algorithm. After the description of a characterization model of a set of association rules, we propose to explore the results of a Data Mining algorithm with an interactive visual tool. There are two advantages. First it will visualize the results of the algorithms from different points of view (metrics, rules attributes...). Then it allows us to select easily inside large set of rules the most relevant ones.

HURTER, Christophe, Edouard, Paul, Gaits, Vincent, Nadfaoui, Hasna, Pailler, Jérome, Letondal, Catherine and Conversy, Stephane (2011): Etude exploratoire du stylo électronique pour le Contrôle Aérien. In: Proceedings of the 2011 Conference of the Association Francophone dInteraction Homme-Machine 2011. p. 15.

Current environment used by air traffic controllers mixes digital visualizations (radar screen), and tangible systems with paper strip. Despite the fact that paper strip are robust, flexible and complementary to the radar screen, authorities decided to abandon it in the profit of digital strip. The main issue of paper strip is that the system does not have access to the information written on it. In this paper, we studied an alternative solution with hybrids Anoto pens with contiuous streaming. We first retrieved important tasks performed by air traffic controller, second, we investigated to find out efficient interaction paradigm for their activity. Finally, we developed and assessed an operational prototype with new functionalities. This suggests that it is possible to retain advantages of existing paper strip while informing informatics systems and improving interaction.

HURTER, Christophe, Serrurier, Mathieu, Alonso, Roland, Tabart, Gilles and Vinot, Jean-Luc (2010): An automatic generation of schematic maps to display flight routes for air traffic controllers: structure and color optimization. In: Proceedings of the 2010 International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces 2010. pp. 233-240.

Aircraft must follow strict Air Traffic Control (ATC) rules. One of these rules is that aircraft have to fly over pre-defined Flight Routes (FR). Current ATC visualizations do not display FRs because they are numerous and run into each other, and thus spoil the visualization. The schematic views for metro maps are used to maximize the transmission of relevant information (lines, metro stops) of network visualization. In this paper, we will focus on two different issues. First, we show how we transposed mathematical constraints used to produce metro maps into the specific field of ATC. The view produced is a context compatible, 2D picture of a schematic maps view for Air Traffic Control. Second, we propose to investigate the generation and placement of colors to be assigned to lines of the network. The first step is to find as many colors as lines of the network. These colors must be perceptually as distinct as possible, and available in the vocabulary of colors. The second step is to solve the NP-complete problem of the optimal assignment of these colors so that close lines have the most perceptively distant color. Finally, we assess the map produced through experimentation to validate its quality.

MERLIN, Bruno, HURTER, Christophe and BENHACENE, Raïlane (2008): A solution to interface evolution issues: the multi-layer interface. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2008 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems April 5-10, 2008. pp. 2715-2720.

Updating an operational system is often complex and awkward. In this article, we will explain how the concept of multi-layer interface could facilitate the evolution of operational interactive systems. We will explain how the division in several layers could increase the application acceptance and smooth out learning phases. Furthermore, we will present how we implement this concept in the ASTER project.
