To design an easy-to-use interface, pay attention to what users do, not what they say. Self-reported claims are unreliable, as are user speculations about future behavior.

We present Tweetris, a full-body interactive Tetris game with extended audience participation. Snapshots of players making correct tetrominos are tweeted, and this feed is used by a mobile and web-based Tetris game, which can be played from anywhere in real-time.

Zhao, Shengdong, Chevalier, Fanny, Ooi, Wei Tsang, Lee, Chee Yuan and Agarwal, Arpit (2012): AutoComPaste: auto-completing text as an alternative to copy-paste. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces 2012. pp. 365-372.
The copy-paste command is a fundamental and widely used operation in daily computing. It is generally regarded as a simple task but the process can become tedious when frequent window switching is required to copy-paste across different documents. Auto-completion is another popular operation aimed at reducing users' typing effort. It contrasts to copy-paste by allowing for text completion without switching windows. However, the available content for completion is predefined. We introduce AutoComPaste, an enhanced autocompletion technique for cross-document copy-paste. AutoComPaste allows users to copy-paste different granularity of text from all opened documents without window switching. Our theoretical analysis and empirical study show that AutoComPaste nicely complements traditional copy-paste techniques and outperforms the traditional copy-paste techniques when users have knowledge of the content to be copied.

Oliver, Symon, Gali, Guia, Chevalier, Fanny and Diamond, Sara (2012): Discursive navigation of online news. In: Proceedings of DIS12 Designing Interactive Systems 2012. pp. 82-85.
As a response to the current navigational format of online news, which is linear, chronological, and heavily delineated by topics, we propose a more discursive and heuristic model of navigation that will offer readers a variety of lenses, interpretations, and pathways to read through a news site. Through an analysis of two prominent discursive models of knowledge -- Foucault's Discursive Formations and Deleuze and Guattari's Rhizome -- we can determine an organizational framework that is more representative of human memory and associative connections. This discursive framework is put into practice through the interactive and exploratory medium of data visualization, shown in a sketch-based format.

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.

Zhao, Jian, Chevalier, Fanny and Balakrishnan, Ravin (2011): KronoMiner: using multi-foci navigation for the visual exploration of time-series data. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 1737-1746.
The need for pattern discovery in long time-series data led researchers to develop interactive visualization tools and analytical algorithms for gaining insight into the data. Most of the literature on time-series data visualization either focus on a small number of tasks or a specific domain. We propose KronoMiner, a tool that embeds new interaction and visualization techniques as well as analytical capabilities for the visual exploration of time-series data. The interface's design has been iteratively refined based on feedback from expert users. Qualitative evaluation with an expert user not involved in the design process indicates that our prototype is promising for further research.

Dragicevic, Pierre, Huot, Stephane and Chevalier, Fanny (2011): Animating from markup code to rendered documents and vice versa. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2011. pp. 257-262.
We present a quick preview technique that smoothly transitions between document markup code and its visual rendering. This technique allows users to regularly check the code they are editing in-place, without leaving the text editor. This method can complement classical preview windows by offering rapid overviews of code-to-document mappings and leaving more screen real-estate. We discuss the design and implementation of our technique.

Riche, Nathalie Henry, Lee, Bongshin and Chevalier, Fanny (2010): iChase: supporting exploration and awareness of editing activities on Wikipedia. In: Proceedings of the 2010 International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces 2010. pp. 59-66.
To increase its credibility and preserve the trust of its readers. Wikipedia needs to ensure a good quality of its articles. To that end, it is critical for Wikipedia administrators to be aware of contributors' editing activity to monitor vandalism, encourage reliable contributors to work on specific articles, or find mentors for new contributors. In this paper, we present iChase, a novel interactive visualization tool to provide administrators with better awareness of editing activities on Wikipedia. Unlike the currently used visualizations that provide only page-centric information. iChase visualizes the trend of activities for two entity types; articles and contributors. iChase is based on two heatmaps (one for each entity type) synchronized to one timeline. It allows users to interactively explore the history of changes by drilling down into specific articles and contributors, or time points to access the details of the changes. We also present a case study to illustrate how iChase can be used to monitor editing activities of Wikipedia authors, as well as a usability study. We conclude by discussing the strengths and weaknesses of iChase.

Chevalier, Fanny, Dragicevic, Pierre, Bezerianos, Anastasia and Fekete, Jean-Daniel (2010): Using text animated transitions to support navigation in document histories. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2010 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2010. pp. 683-692.
This article examines the benefits of using text animated transitions for navigating in the revision history of textual documents. We propose an animation technique for smoothly transitioning between different text revisions, then present the Diffamation system. Diffamation supports rapid exploration of revision histories by combining text animated transitions with simple navigation and visualization tools. We finally describe a user study showing that smooth text animation allows users to track changes in the evolution of textual documents more effectively than flipping pages.

Moscovich, Tomer, Chevalier, Fanny, Henry, Nathalie, Pietriga, Emmanuel and Fekete, Jean-Daniel (2009): Topology-aware navigation in large networks. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2009 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2009. pp. 2319-2328.
Applications supporting navigation in large networks are used every days by millions of people. They include road map navigators, flight route visualization systems, and network visualization systems using node-link diagrams. These applications currently provide generic interaction methods for navigation: pan-and-zoom and sometimes bird's eye views. This article explores the idea of exploiting the connection information provided by the network to help navigate these large spaces. We visually augment two traditional navigation methods, and develop two special-purpose techniques. The first new technique, called "Link Sliding", provides guided panning when continuously dragging along a visible link. The second technique, called "Bring&Go", brings adjacent nodes nearby when pointing to a node. We compare the performance of these techniques in both an adjacency exploration task and a node revisiting task. This comparison illustrates the various advantages of content-aware network navigation techniques. A significant speed advantage is found for the Bring&Go technique over other methods.
