Wolf, Catherine G., Rhyne, James R. and Briggs, Laura K. (1992): Communication and Information Retrieval with a Pen-Based Meeting Support Tool. In: Proceedings of the 1992 ACM conference on Computer-supported cooperative work November 01 - 04, 1992, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. pp. 322-329.

We-Met (Window Environment-Meeting Enhancement Tools) is a prototype pen-based tool designed to support both the communication and information retrieval needs of small group meetings. The first part of this paper describes We-Met and the rationale for its design, the second discusses findings from an empirical study of the use of We-Met for group communication, and the third discusses findings from a study of the search and retrieval of information from non-computer based meetings conducted to provide insight into how to facilitate these activities in We-Met. The paper identifies potential communication process gains due to the pen-based interface style, opportunities for the facilitation of information retrieval in a pen-based tool, and functionality/interface challenges in the design of a tool to support small group meetings.

Rhyne, James R. and Wolf, Catherine G. (1992): Tools for Supporting the Collaborative Process. In: Mackinlay, Jock D. and Green, Mark (eds.) Proceedings of the 5th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology November 15 - 18, 1992, Monteray, California, United States. pp. 161-170.

Collaborative software has been divided into two temporal categories: synchronous and asynchronous. We argue that this binary distinction is unnecessary and harmful, and present a model for collaboration processes (i.e. the temporal record of the actions of the group members) which includes both synchronous and asynchronous software as submodels. We outline an object-oriented toolkit which implements the model, and present an application of its use in a pen-based conferencing tool.

Wolf, Catherine G., Rhyne, James R. and Ellozy, Hamed A. (1989): The Paper-Like Interface. In: Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 1989. pp. 494-501.

A group at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center has been exploring a Paper-Like Interface which couples the convenience of pen and paper with the power of a computer. This paper describes the paper-like interface and the demonstration applications we have built in order to investigate the benefits and liabilities of this interface style. The findings from formal and informal studies of the use of the prototype system are reported.

Rhyne, James R. (1988): Extensions to C for Interface Programming. In: Green, Mark (ed.) Proceedings of the 1st annual ACM SIGGRAPH symposium on User Interface Software October 17 - 19, 1988, Alberta, Canada. pp. 30-45.

Extending the facilities available to a programmer can be more productive, flexible, and appealing when done via additions to the syntax and semantics of the programming language, than when done by way of procedure packages. Database programming, for example, is now routinely done using query languages that are embedded in programming languages. Interaction dialog programming can be greatly simplified by use of a specification language. Dialog languages are not often integrated with a programming language. In this report, a set of extensions to the C language are presented. These extensions provide a rule-based sublanguage for describing interaction dialogs. A translator and interpreter have been constructed for the extended (C + Dialog) language, and used in a research project investigating gestural interfaces.

Rhyne, James R. (1987): Making UIMSs Useful. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 31st Annual Meeting 1987. p. 30.

The term "User Interface Management System" seems to mean different things. In the article which first coined the term, Kasik defined the UIMS as a productivity tool for interface developers, intended to speed up the creation of interactive applications. Others consider a UIMS to be a tool for enforcing good human factors interfaces. Still others think of a UIMS as a rapid prototyping environment for experimental interfaces. Is it possible for a single tool to meet all of these needs?

Wolf, Catherine G. and Rhyne, James R. (1987): A Taxonomic Approach to Understanding Direct Manipulation. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 31st Annual Meeting 1987. pp. 576-580.

This paper presents a taxonomy for user interface techniques which is useful in understanding direct manipulation interfaces. The taxonomy is based on the way actions and objects are specified in the interface. We suggest that direct manipulation is a characteristic shared by a number of different interface techniques, rather than a single interface style. A relatively new interface method, gesture, is also described in terms of the taxonomy and some observations are made on its potential.
