LyberWorld is a prototype IR user interface. It implements visualizations of an abstract information space – fulltext. The paper derives a model for such visualizations and an exemplar user interface design is implemented for the probabilistic fulltext retrieval system INQUERY. Visualizations are used to communicate information search and browsing(More)
With the exponential growth of information on the Internet, current information integration systems have become more and more unsuitable for this "Internet age" due to the great diversity among sources. This paper presents a constraint-based query user interface model, which can be applied to the construction of dynamically generated adaptive user(More)
Personalization is an established method for reducing information overload and facilitating targeted access to relevant information objects in an information system. However, the use of the information collected about a user and his current context in a user profile is traditionally restricted to a single system, although many user tasks require information(More)
LectureLounge is a research platform and a system to automatically and non-invasively capture, analyze, annotate, index, archive and publish live-presentations.On one hand LectureLounge covers the complete value chain from capturing to publication und the focus of automation and so is more than a media-on-demand system in operation. On the other hand(More)
In user interfaces of modern systems, users get the impression of directly interacting with application objects. In 3D based user interfaces, novel input devices, like hand and force input devices, are being introduced. They aim at providing natural ways of interaction. The use of a hand input device allows the recognition of static poses and dynamic(More)
In this paper we introduce Virgilio, a system which supports the construction of non-immersive VR-based visualizations of complex data objects representing the result of a query performed on a multimedia database. Virgilio takes as input the dataset resulting from a query on a generic database, displays attribute values of the dataset on virtual world(More)

This article is being produced via complete electronic text/image integration, to enable full database storage. It has therefore to meet specific standards regarding structure and presentation. This proof is an automatically produced, low-resolution laser-printer output. The final product will naturally meet our high-quality standards regarding resolution(More)
LyberWorld is a prototype IR user interface. It implements visualizations of an abstract information space – fulltext. The presentation demonstrates a visual user interface for the probabilistic fulltext retrieval system INQUERY. Visualizations are used to communicate information search and browsing activities in a natural way by applying metaphors of(More)
