A significant amount of innovation from research labs and universities is wasted; it is never applied in systems that the actual users can or want to use. The process of going from a novel concept to a usable, useful system is poorly understood by most researchers. The purpose of this panel is to address how research done in research labs and universities can be converted into systems that the end users would use. Each of the panelists has built at least one substantial system which is currently being used by a large community of real users (other than the team that built the system). Based on their experience, they will make recommendations that, if followed early enough in the project, would make the conversion to usable systems faster and easier.

Singh, Gurminder and Green, Mark (1991): Automating the Lexical and Syntactic Design of Graphical User Interfaces: The UofA* UIMS. In ACM Transactions on Graphics, 10 (3) pp. 213-254.

The primary goal of the UofA* UIMS is to address a key problem with UIMSs: their inability to help in the initial design of user interfaces. Because of this inability, most existing UIMSs require the interface designer to work with low level syntactic and lexical detail, which can be very time-consuming and expensive in terms of effort required. The UofA* approach to this problem is to produce the initial design specification and implementation of the user interface automatically, and then enable the interface designer to improve its appearance and effectiveness through an interactive refinement process. The interface designer, in this approach, works at the conceptual and semantic levels of the user interface and produces a high-level description of the commands the interface is to support. Based on this description the syntactic and lexical levels of the interface are automatically designed and implemented. This interface can be refined by the designer to improve the resulting interaction with the user. The UofA* UIMS facilitates exploration in interface design by using user's preferences and designer's guidelines as optional inputs. It allows the creation of interfaces in which many different types of syntaxes can coexist.

Singh, Gurminder, Kok, Chun Hong and Ngan, Teng Ye (1990): Druid: A System for Demonstrational Rapid User Interface Development. In: Hudson, Scott E. (ed.) Proceedings of the 3rd annual ACM SIGGRAPH symposium on User interface software and technology October 03 - 05, 1990, Snowbird, Utah, United States. pp. 167-177.

The Druid user interface management system aims to help user interface designers create, modify, and maintain interactive, graphical, direct-manipulation user interfaces. Druid allows the creation of the complete user interface in highly interactive and demonstrational manner. In Druid, the designer creates the layout of the interface using interactive graphical facilities and demonstrates to the UIMS how the end-user might interact with the interface. From this demonstration, the UIMS determines the details of the interface and automatically produces an implementation of it.

Singh, Gurminder and Green, Mark (1989): A High-Level User Interface Management System. In: Bice, Ken and Lewis, Clayton H. (eds.) Proceedings of the ACM CHI 89 Human Factors in Computing Systems Conference April 30 - June 4, 1989, Austin, Texas. pp. 133-138.

A high-level UIMS which automatically generates the lexical and syntactic design of graphical user interfaces is presented. The interfaces generated by the UIMS can easily and rapidly be refined by the designer by using highly interactive and graphical facilities. The UIMS accepts a high-level description of the semantic commands supported by the application, a description of the implementation device, and optionally, the end user's preferences. Based on these inputs the UIMS generates graphical user interfaces in which the commands are selected from menus and command arguments are provided through interaction with graphical interaction techniques.

Singh, Gurminder and Green, Mark (1989): Chisel: A System for Creating Highly Interactive Screen Layouts. In: Sibert, John L. (ed.) Proceedings of the 2nd annual ACM SIGGRAPH symposium on User interface software and technology November 13 - 15, 1989, Williamsburg, Virginia, United States. pp. 86-94.

The UofA User Interface Management System (UIMS) generates graphical user interfaces based on a high-level description of semantic commands supported by the application. A main part of the UIMS, called Chisel, generates the presentation component of interfaces. Chisel selects interaction techniques, determines their attributes, and places them on the screen of the display device. While doing so it is capable of considering device properties, end user's preferences, and interface designer's guidelines. The aim of this paper is to discuss in detail the design and implementation of Chisel.

The concepts of a user interface management system (UIMS) and user interface designer have become well known in the user interface and graphics community. Most UIMSs developed so far have concentrated on the efficiency of generating the user interface; the user interface designer's interface has received relatively little attention. We identify the important features of the user interface designer's interface. A UIMS incorporating these features in its interface has been developed, and is described in this paper.
