Hascoet-Zizi, Mountaz, Plaisant, Catherine, Ahlberg, Christopher, Chalmers, Matthew, Korfhage, Robert R. and Rao, Ramana (1996): Where is Information Visualization Technology Going?. In: Kurlander, David, Brown, Marc and Rao, Ramana (eds.) Proceedings of the 9th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology November 06 - 08, 1996, Seattle, Washington, United States. pp. 75-77.

Over the past few years a lot of different information visualization techniques have been proposed. Being a relatively new and large field, the spectrum of emerging techniques has not clearly been identified. Another major consequence of the youthfulness of the field is that very few evaluation have been conducted so far. The aim of the panel will be to address these two points. First, panelist will characterize the spectrum of information visualization technology depending on tasks, users or data. Panelists will further discuss future trends in visualization technology by determining which are the most important features or challenges that information visualization systems should address. Second, the discussion will focus on how these systems are to be evaluated: through controlled experiments, system evaluation, long-time studies, verbal protocols, theoretical evaluations, or else?

Korfhage, Robert R. (1995): VIBE: Visual Information Browsing Environment. In: Proceedings of the Eighteenth Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval 1995. p. 363.

VIBE (Visual Information Browsing Environment) is a visual interface for information systems, focusing on the clustering and organization of documents in a collection, with respect to multiple reference points (e.g., query, user profile, known documents). The highly dynamic, interactive interface can be used in two vector modes: normal (iconic display of hundreds of documents), ASTRO (display of thousands of documents), and one Boolean mode, showing documents for all Boolean combinations of the reference points. Multiple tools are available to help the user organize and view the documents. User-defined thresholds can limit the documents shown to only the more relevant ones.

Korfhage, Robert R. (1991): To See, or Not to See -- Is That the Query?. In: Proceedings of the Fourteenth Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval 1991. pp. 134-141.

Traditional information retrieval systems, in the guise of presenting the most relevant information to the searcher, really put blinders on him. They present certain information to the searcher, but strongly inhibit him from seeing other information, or even knowing of its existence. In this paper we present an argument for a new retrieval paradigm, one that focuses on the organized display of all documents, rather than on the linear display of just the "best."
