Ishak, Edward W. and Feiner, Steven K. (2006): Content-aware scrolling. In: Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2006. pp. 155-158. Available online

Scrolling is used to navigate large information spaces on small screens, but is often too restrictive or cumbersome to use for particular types of content, such as multi-page, multi-column documents. To address this problem, we introduce content-aware scrolling (CAS), an approach that takes into account various characteristics of document content to determine scrolling direction, speed, and zoom. We also present the CAS widget, which supports scrolling through a content-aware path using traditional scrolling methods, demonstrating the advantages of making a traditional technique content-aware.

Ishak, Edward W. and Feiner, Steven K. (2004): Interacting with hidden content using content-aware free-space transparency. In: Proceedings of the 2004 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2004. pp. 189-192. Available online

We present content-aware free-space transparency, an approach to viewing and manipulating the otherwise hidden content of obscured windows through unimportant regions of overlapping windows. Traditional approaches to interacting with otherwise obscured content in a window system render an entire window uniformly transparent. In contrast, content-aware free-space transparency uses opaque-to-transparent gradients and image-processing filters to minimize the interference from overlapping material, based on properties of that material. By increasing the amount of simultaneously visible content and allowing basic interaction with otherwise obscured content, without modifying window geometry, we believe that free-space transparency has the potential to improve user productivity.
