A diary study of task switching and interruptions
A diary study of the activities of information workers aimed at characterizing how people interleave multiple tasks amidst interruptions revealed the type and complexity of activities performed, the nature of the interruptions experienced, and the difficulty of shifting among numerous tasks.

A new technique for document management called the Data Mountain is described, which allows users to place documents at arbitrary positions on an inclined plane in a 3D desktop virtual environment using a simple 2D interaction technique.
Drag-and-Pop and Drag-and-Pick: Techniques for Accessing Remote Screen Content on Touch- and Pen-Operated Systems
The results of a user study comparing drag-and-pop with traditional drag- and-drop on a 15' (4.50m) wide interactive display wall are reported, showing participants where able to file icons up to 3.7 times faster when using the drag-And-pop interface.
The Task Gallery: a 3D window manager
The Task Gallery is a window manager that uses interactive 3D graphics to provide direct support for task management and document comparison, lacking from many systems implementing the desktop…

This paper presents a design study of a novel set visual representation, LineSets, consisting of a curve connecting all of the set's elements, and demonstrates that the generated curves do as well as human-drawn ones.
AffectAura: an intelligent system for emotional memory
It is shown that users could reason forward and backward in time about their emotional experiences using the interface, and found this useful.
Web page design: implications of memory, structure and scent for information retrieval
An experiment to see if large breadth and decreased depth is preferable, both subjectively and via performance data, while attempting to design for optimal scent throughout different structures of a website showed that, while increased depth did harm search performance on the web, a medium condition of depth and breadth outperformed the broadesf shallow web structure overall.
Exploring the design space for adaptive graphical user interfaces
This paper designs and implemented three adaptive graphical interfaces and evaluated them in two experiments along with a non-adaptive baseline and discusses how different design choices and interactions affect the success of adaptive graphical user interfaces.
