>TITLE: Elastic Presentation
>Representing vast amounts of information on our relatively small screens is
>becoming increasingly problematic and has been associated with difficulties
>in information navigation and interpretation. User interface research has
>proposed several approaches to address these problems. These methods create
>displays that vary considerably, visually and algorithmically. I will
>present a unified geometric framework that provides a way of relating these
>seemingly distinct methods, facilitating the inclusion of more than one
>presentation method in a single interface. Furthermore, it supports
>extrapolation between the methods it describes. Of particular interest are
>the presentation possibilities that exist in the ranges between fisheye
>views and Perspective Wall, between magnified insets and detail-in-context,
>and between detail-in-context presentations and a full-zooming environment.
>  From this unified framework we have created a presentation library in
>which geometric layout variations are available independently from the mode
>of graphic representation. The intention is to promote the ease of
>exploration and experimentation into the use of varied presentation
>Sheelagh Carpendale is a professor in Department of Computer Science at the
>University of Calgary. Her research interests include information
>visualisation, user interface design, visual languages and graphics.
>Previously she was a research scientist with a Forest Renewal, British
>Columbia project called SEED (Simulating and Exploring Ecosystem Dynamics).
>Though her current professional focus is computing science she has a
>background in both fine arts and sciences. She received her computing
>science PhD from Simon Fraser University and attended Sheridan College,
>School of Design and Emily Carr, College of Art. Her professional work in
>the arts included teaching fine arts at Humber College and establishing the
>Arts Centre at York Quay, Harbourfront in Toronto. In her current
>information visualisation research, she has found the combined visual arts
>and computing science background invaluable
>The lectures are available each week over the Internet. Look under Computer
>Science 547 in
>They can be accessed without registration.
