Table of Contents


Scalability & Heterogeneity

Even great interfaces have not had to cope with vast arrays of widely differing data. Designs have usually worked best when the data is limited, highly structured and fairly constrained in scope. Are we using buckets to deal with a firehose-sized challenge?

Toward a New Paradigm for User Interaction on the Semantic Web to Support Life Sciences Investigation
Andrea Splendiani, Martin Kuiper, Chris J Rawlings

Adaptability & Context

What is the potential for truly influencing the user experience? How can data drive the process of the interaction; knowing enough about the user's goals, tasks, experience, and motivations to refine the experience appropriately?

In Favour of (more) Intelligence in the Semantic UI
Ian Dickinson

Evaluation & Methodology

To gain the insights we need to achieve in our work, we need to understand the tools that we use when we research, design, and evaluate. We also need to evolve new tools for new interactions.

Exploring Heterogeneous Datasets from Different Searcher Perspectives
