Kobayashi, Makoto and Igarashi, Takeo (2003): Considering the direction of cursor movement for efficient traversal of cascading menus. In: Proceedings of the 16th annural ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology November, 2-5, 2003, Vancouver, Canada. pp. 91-94.

Cascading menus are commonly seen in most GUI systems. However, people sometimes choose the wrong items by mistake, or become frustrated when submenus pop up unnecessarily. This paper proposes two methods for improving the usability of cascading menus. The first uses the direction of cursor movement to change the menu behavior: horizontal motion opens/closes submenus, while vertical motion changes the highlight within the current menu. This feature can reduce cursor movement errors. The second causes a submenu to pop up at the position where horizontal motion occurs. This is expected to reduce the length of the movement path for menu traversal. A user study showed that our methods reduce menu selection times, shorten search path lengths, and prevent unexpected submenu appearance and disappearance.

Kobayashi, Makoto, Shinozaki, Masahide, Sakairi, Takashi, Touma, Maroun, Daijavad, Shahrokh and Wolf, Catherine G. (1998): Collaborative Customer Services Using Synchronous Web Browser Sharing. In: Poltrock, Steven and Grudin, Jonathan (eds.) Proceedings of the 1998 ACM conference on Computer supported cooperative work November 14 - 18, 1998, Seattle, Washington, United States. pp. 99-108.

In this paper, we describe our experiences in designing two applications for synchronous web browser sharing in the context of Web-based collaborative customer service. Real-world business requirements were the key factors that dictated the design and architecture of these collaborative applications and as such, constitute the foundations for the paper.

Ishii, Hiroshi, Kobayashi, Makoto and Grudin, Jonathan (1992): Integration of Inter-Personal Space and Shared Workspace: ClearBoard Design and Experiments. In: Proceedings of the 1992 ACM conference on Computer-supported cooperative work November 01 - 04, 1992, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. pp. 33-42.

This paper describes the evolution of a novel shared drawing medium that permits co-workers in two different locations to draw with color markers or with electronic pens and software tools while maintaining direct eye contact and the ability to employ natural gestures. We describe the evolution from ClearBoard-1 (based on a video drawing technique) to ClearBoard-2 (which incorporates TeamPaint, a multi-user paint editor). Initial observations based on use and experimentation are reported. Further experiments are conducted with ClearBoard-0 (a simple mockup), with ClearBoard-1, and with an actual desktop as a control. These experiments verify the increase of eye contact and awareness of collaborator's gaze direction in ClearBoard environments where workspace and co-worker images compete for attention.
