Huot, Stephane, Chapuis, Olivier and Dragicevic, Pierre (2011): TorusDesktop: pointing via the backdoor is sometimes shorter. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 829-838.

When pointing to a target on a computer desktop, we may think we are taking the shortest possible path. But new shortcuts become possible if we allow the mouse cursor to jump from one edge of the screen to the opposite one, i.e., if we turn the desktop into a torus. We discuss the design of TORUSDESKTOP, a pointing technique that allows to wrap the cursor around screen edges to open this pointing backdoor. A dead zone and an off-screen cursor feedback make the technique more usable and more compatible with everyday desktop usage. We report on three controlled experiments conducted to refine the design of the technique and evaluate its performance. The results suggest clear benefits of using the backdoor when target distance is more than 80% the screen size in our experimental conditions.

Pietriga, Emmanuel, Huot, Stephane, Nancel, Mathieu and Primet, Romain (2011): Rapid development of user interfaces on cluster-driven wall displays with jBricks. In: ACM SIGCHI 2011 Symposium on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems 2011. pp. 185-190.

Research on cluster-driven wall displays has mostly focused on techniques for parallel rendering of complex 3D models. There has been comparatively little research effort dedicated to other types of graphics and to the software engineering issues that arise when prototyping novel interaction techniques or developing full-featured applications for such displays. We present jBricks, a Java toolkit that integrates a high-quality 2D graphics rendering engine and a versatile input configuration module into a coherent framework, enabling the exploratory prototyping of interaction techniques and rapid development of post-WIMP applications running on cluster-driven interactive visualization platforms.

Dragicevic, Pierre, Huot, Stephane and Chevalier, Fanny (2011): Animating from markup code to rendered documents and vice versa. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2011. pp. 257-262.

We present a quick preview technique that smoothly transitions between document markup code and its visual rendering. This technique allows users to regularly check the code they are editing in-place, without leaving the text editor. This method can complement classical preview windows by offering rapid overviews of code-to-document mappings and leaving more screen real-estate. We discuss the design and implementation of our technique.

Huot, Stephane and Lecolinet, Eric (2006): SpiraList: a compact visualization technique for one-handed interaction with large lists on mobile devices. In: Proceedings of the Fourth Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 2006. pp. 445-448.

This paper presents SpiraList, a focus+context visualization technique for interacting with large lists on handheld devices. SpiraList has been specifically designed to fit the constraints of small tactile screens. It provides a global view of large lists by way of a compact layout based on a spiral representation. Its design also allows for direct interaction with fingers. The combination of this compact layout and one-handed interaction makes SpiraList particularly suitable for mobility.

Huot, Stephane, Dragicevic, Pierre and Dumas, Cedric (2006): Flexibilit et modularit pour la conception d'interactions: le modle d'architecture logicielle des graphes combins. In: Proceedings of the 2006 Conference of the Association Francophone dInteraction Homme-Machine 2006. pp. 43-50.

This paper presents the Mixed Graphs software architecture of the MAGGLITE post-WIMP toolkit. This model extends and refines the scene graph architecture by describing interactions with another structure: interaction graphs. Graphs are dynamically combined at runtime, thanks to specific communication components named Interaction Access Points. This adaptable and modular approach for describing interactive graphics is gainful for prototyping, implementing and using alternative input devices and/or interaction techniques.

Huot, Stephane, Dumas, Cedric, Dragicevic, Pierre, Fekete, Jean-Daniel and Hegron, Gerard (2004): The MaggLite post-WIMP toolkit: draw it, connect it and run it. In: Proceedings of the 2004 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2004. pp. 257-266.

This article presents MaggLite, a toolkit and sketch-based interface builder allowing fast and interactive design of post-WIMP user interfaces. MaggLite improves design of advanced UIs thanks to its novel mixed-graph architecture that dynamically combines scene-graphs with interaction-graphs. Scene-graphs provide mechanisms to describe and produce rich graphical effects, whereas interaction-graphs allow expressive and fine-grained description of advanced interaction techniques and behaviors such as multiple pointers management, toolglasses, bimanual interaction, gesture, and speech recognition. Both graphs can be built interactively by sketching the UI and specifying the interaction using a dataflow visual language. Communication between the two graphs is managed at runtime by components we call Interaction Access Points. While developers can extend the toolkit by refining built-in generic mechanisms, UI designers can quickly and interactively design, prototype and test advanced user interfaces by applying the MaggLite principle: \"draw it, connect it and run it\".

This paper describes an experiment we conduct to provide designers with an advanced 3D modelling Human-Computer Interaction. The main project -- called GINA [4], a French acronym for Interactive and Natural Geometry-expect to introduce new intuitive and creative 3D modeling tools, relying on 2D perspective drawing reconstruction. This domain study will help us to deduce implications for Human-Computer Interaction in such a system.
