Enhanced Interaction Styles for User Interfaces
March/April 1991 (vol. 11 no. 2)
pp. 79-90

Seven precompetitive research projects on user interfaces in Europe are described. The projects considered are Hufit, the Comett I Project, the Elusive Office Project, the Euroworkstation Project, Acord, MMI/sup 2/, and Xtra. The integration of user interface technologies into new application tasks and the integration of new techniques and artifacts into toolkits are stressed. Also addressed are spreading human factors awareness, adding intelligence to the integration, and the interaction of graphics and natural languages.
