This thesis investigates abstractions for modelling user interface software, discussing their content and their formal representation. Specifically, it focuses on a class of models, called formal interactor models, that incorporate some of the structure of the user interface software. One such abstract model is put forward. This model is called the… (More)
Modern user interface development environments are based on fast prototyping which as a methodology does not incorporate any theory or design principles. Adept (Advanced design environment for prototyping with tasks) incorporates a theory of modelling users and user task knowledge known as Task Knowledge Structures , and extends it to a theoretical… (More)
Introduction A recent focus of research in HCI and CSCW, influenced by previous work in Media Spaces and Portholes, as well as current trends in ambient intelligence, are awareness systems for use in personal settings – either home or mobile. Here, lightweight, emotional, informal forms of communication are being facilitated by systems that help people to… (More)
PRODUCT INFORMATION DISSEMINATION IN THE INTERNET AND MARKETS FOR PRODUCT INFORMATION Panagiotis M. Markopoulos Supervisor: Lyle H. Ungar Information is of utmost importance in the operation of every market, including, recently emerged, on-line markets for products and services. Market participants utilize available and relevant information to decide upon… (More)
In an interdisciplinary, semester-long class, undergraduate students learn how to build a low-cost, multihop wireless sensor network from first principles for a digital garden. This type of course better prepares electrical engineering graduates for the sensor-rich, pervasive computing era.
The LivingLab is a planned research infrastructure that is pivotal for user-system interaction research in the next decade. This article presents the concept and outlines a research programme that will be served by this facility. These future plans are motivated by a vision of future developments concerning interaction with intelligent environments.
This work presents the design and implementation of a wireless sensor network (WSN) from first principles, i.e. without the use of commercial WSN platforms. Specifically, a modular multi-hop WSN was built for humidity, temperature and soil wetness measurements, towards precision agriculture applications. We describe the modules developed for radio… (More)

This paper reports the user study and design of an improved concept of a mobile messaging application for teens. The studies of current mobile phone use by teens (16-18) showed that, while they prefer communicating by Short Message Service (SMS), they miss expressiveness in this application. An enhanced SMS application, SenseMS, is designed to support… (More)
