The user interface -the all-important point of contact between people and technology- is the key to unlocking the full potential of multimedia and the Internet. With a balanced blend of theory and practice, this timely new book explores the art and science of user interface design, teaching a step-by-step methodology guaranteed to result in a productive and rewarding user experience. A no-nonsense, hands-on approach teaches best practice by proposing design problems, presenting potential solutions, and then analyzing each approach to determine which works best and why. Drawing on his years of experience, author Marc Silver deconstructs several commercial multimedia and website interfaces, showing where they succeed and where they fail, and offering workable redesign suggestions to help readers better understand the principles they've learned. Armed with the knowledge gained from Exploring Interface Design, readers will be able to confidently apply interface design principles to their own design projects and achieve stunning results.

Interactive Dramaturgies

Interactive media require new forms of dramaturgy. Heide Hagebölling develops a new understanding of dramaturgy, "Interactive Dramaturgy", which goes beyond interactive storytelling. Contributions by international multimedia authors, designers, and artists outline concepts and strategies for multimedia productions. These outstanding example projects cover various genres: culture, museum, TV, and education. Interactive media are complex and have multiple dimensions. A linear dramaturgy, therefore, no longer holds. The global connection via Internet fosters further dimensions of exchange and competition. Interactive dramaturgies define rules, transition points, and dimensions of multi-user environments. Multimedia, real and virtual elements must be carefully integrated within applications or installations. Interactive dramaturgies help design and create environments and content that lead to immersion, active exploration, and knowledge acquisition, and that motivate users to repeated visits.

Exploring Digital Design

Exploring Digital Design

The first half of the book Exploring Digital Design is authored as a multi-disciplinary approach to digital design research, and represents novel perspectives and analyses in this research.

View: 279

Exploring Digital Design takes a multi-disciplinary look at digital design research where digital design is embedded in a larger socio-cultural context. Working from socio-technical research areas such as Participatory Design (PD), Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), the book explores how humanities offer new insights into digital design, and discusses a variety of digital design research practices, methods, and theoretical approaches spanning established disciplinary borders. The aim of the book is to explore the diversity of contemporary digital design practices in which commonly shared aspects are interpreted and integrated into different disciplinary and interdisciplinary conversations. It is the conversations and explorations with humanities that further distinguish this book within digital design research. Illustrated with real examples from digital design research practices from a variety of research projects and from a broad range of contexts Exploring Digital Design offers a basis for understanding the disciplinary roots as well as the interdisciplinary dialogues in digital design research, providing theoretical, empirical, and methodological sources for understanding digital design research. The first half of the book Exploring Digital Design is authored as a multi-disciplinary approach to digital design research, and represents novel perspectives and analyses in this research. The contributors are Gunnar Liestøl, Andrew Morrison and Christina Mörtberg in addition to the editors. Although primarily written for researchers and graduate students, digital design practioners will also find the book useful. Overall, Exploring Digital Design provides an excellent introduction to, and resource for, research into digital design.

KES International (KES) is a worldwide organisation that provides a professional community and association for researchers, originally in the discipline of Knowledge Based and Intelligent Engineering Systems, but now extending into other related areas. Through this, KES provides its members with opportunities for publication and beneficial interaction. The focus of KES is research and technology transfer in the area of Intelligent S- tems, i.e. computer-based software systems that operate in a manner analogous to the human brain, in order to perform advanced tasks. Recently KES has started to extend its area of interest to encompass the contribution that intelligent systems can make to sustainability and renewable energy, and also the knowledge transfer, innovation and enterprise agenda. Involving several thousand researchers, managers and engineers drawn from u- versities and companies world-wide, KES is in an excellent position to facilitate - ternational research co-operation and generate synergy in the area of artificial intel- gence applied to real-world ‘Smart’ systems and the underlying related theory. The KES annual conference covers a broad spectrum of intelligent systems topics and attracts several hundred delegates from a range of countries round the world. KES also organises symposia on specific technical topics, for example, Agent and Multi Agent Systems, Intelligent Decision Technologies, Intelligent Interactive M- timedia Systems and Services, Sustainability in Energy and Buildings and Innovations through Knowledge Transfer. KES is responsible for two peer-reviewed journals, the International Journal of Knowledge based and Intelligent Engineering Systems, and Intelligent Decision Technologies: an International Journal.

Memory Architecture Exploration for Programmable Embedded Systems addresses efficient exploration of alternative memory architectures, assisted by a "compiler-in-the-loop" that allows effective matching of the target application to the processor-memory architecture. This new approach for memory architecture exploration replaces the traditional black-box view of the memory system and allows for aggressive co-optimization of the programmable processor together with a customized memory system. The book concludes with a set of experiments demonstrating the utility of this exploration approach. The authors perform architecture and compiler exploration for a set of large, real-life benchmarks, uncovering promising memory configurations from different perspectives, such as cost, performance and power.
