Chatty, Stephane, Sire, Stephane, Vinot, Jean-Luc, Lecoanet, Patrick, Lemort, Alexandre and Mertz, Christophe (2004): Revisiting visual interface programming: creating GUI tools for designers and programmers. In: Proceedings of the 2004 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2004. pp. 267-276. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1029632.1029678

Involving graphic designers in the large-scale development of user interfaces requires tools that provide more graphical flexibility and support efficient software processes. These requirements were analysed and used in the design of the TkZ-inc graphical library and the IntuiKit interface design environment. More flexibility is obtained through a wider palette of visual techniques and support for iterative construction of images, composition and parametric displays. More efficient processes are obtained with the use of the SVG standard to import graphics, support for linking graphics and behaviour, and a unifying model-driven architecture. We describe the corresponding features of our tools, and show their use in the development of an application for airports. Benefits include a wider access to high quality visual interfaces for specialised applications, and shorter prototyping and development cycles for multidisciplinary teams.

Buisson, Marcellin, Sallagoty, Isabelle, Athnes, Sylvie and Mertz, Christophe (2003): From human movement analysis to interface design: applications to writing and gesture based user interface. In: Proceedings of the 2003 Conference of the Association Francophone dInteraction Homme-Machine 2003. pp. 224-227. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1063669.1063703

A number of authors have studied the possibility of using handwriting or gesture as inputs. In most cases, the focus was either on building robust algorithms for recognition or identifying a set of assumed "natural" movements. Few authors have taken the analysis of actual movements as a starting point to build a set of precise and stable movements. This paper presents some arguments in favor of using results from human movement science to improve the elaboration of robust interfaces.

Buisson, Marcellin, Bustico, Alexandre, Chatty, Stephane, Colin, Francois-Rgis, Jestin, Yannick, Maury, Sbastien, Mertz, Christophe and Truillet, Philippe (2002): Ivy: un bus logiciel au service du développement de prototypes de systmes interactifs. In: Proceedings of the 2002 Conference of the Association Francophone dInteraction Homme-Machine 2002. pp. 223-226. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/777005.777040

This paper focuses on the experience we have acquired by developing and using the Ivy software bus to design human-computer interactive prototypes for Air Traffic Control. We list its properties for designing and developing light and powerful HMIs. By presenting our experience, we hope it will foster the design and development of the future architectures of interactive systems for research needs.
