This paper proposes applying principles of human causal reasoning to graphical interface design to make interfaces more intuitive. In particular, we present a design guideline for making graphical interfaces consistent with causal temporal order and demonstrate its effectiveness in an experiment where participants solve a puzzle with a novel interface. We also present preliminary results of its application to a text formatting task and propose several other causal principles that are directly applicable to interface design.

Amitay, Einat, Darlow, Adam, Konopnicki, David and Weiss, Uri (2005): Queries as anchors: selection by association. In: Proceedings of the Sixteenth ACM Conference on Hypertext 2005. pp. 193-201. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1083356.1083393

This paper introduces a new method for linking the world view of the search engine user community with that of the search engine itself. This new method is based on collecting and aggregating associative query trails in the form of query reformulation sessions. Those associative query trails are then used to expand the documents indexed by the search engine. Our method is shown to reduce the time spent searching the index, reduce the need to reformulate queries, and also increase the proportion of queries which fulfill the user's information need. Our work provides a mere glimpse into a new field of study by introducing new types of linking between documents and users' world views. Such links from world views have never previously been considered content that can be indexed and searched over.

Amitay, Einat, Carmel, David, Darlow, Adam, Lempel, Ronny and Soffer, Aya (2003): The connectivity sonar: detecting site functionality by structural patterns. In: Proceedings of the Fourteenth ACM Conference on Hypertext 2003. pp. 38-47. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/900051.900060

Web sites today serve many different functions, such as corporate sites, search engines, e-stores, and so forth. As sites are created for different purposes, their structure and connectivity characteristics vary. However, this research argues that sites of similar role exhibit similar structural patterns, as the functionality of a site naturally induces a typical hyperlinked structure and typical connectivity patterns to and from the rest of the Web. Thus, the functionality of Web sites is reflected in a set of structural and connectivity-based features that form a typical signature. In this paper, we automatically categorize sites into eight distinct functional classes, and highlight several search-engine related applications that could make immediate use of such technology. We purposely limit our categorization algorithms by tapping connectivity and structural data alone, making no use of any content analysis whatsoever. When applying two classification algorithms to a set of 202 sites of the eight defined functional categories, the algorithms correctly classified between 54.5% and 59% of the sites. On some categories, the
