We describe the i-LAND environment which constitutes an exampleof our vision of the workspaces of the future, in this casesupporting cooperative work of dynamic teams with changing needs.i-LAND requires and provides new forms of human-computerinteraction and new forms of computer-supported cooperative work.Its design is based on an integration of(More)
We present the ConnecTable, a new mobile, networked and context-aware information appliance that provides affordances for pen-based individual and cooperative work as well as for the seamless transition between the two. In order to dynamically enlarge an interaction area for the purpose of shared use, a flexible coupling of displays has been realized that(More)
Drag-and-pop and drag-and-pick are interaction techniques designed for users of penand touchoperated display systems. They provide users with access to screen content that would otherwise be impossible or hard to reach, e.g., because it is located behind a bezel or far away from the user. Drag-and-pop is an extension of traditional drag-and-drop. As the(More)
In ubiquitous computing environments, multiple users work with a wide range of different devices. In many cases, users interact and collaborate using multiple heterogeneous devices at the same time. The configuration of the devices should be able to change frequently due to a highly dynamic, flexible and mobile nature of new work practices. This produces(More)
In the past, a central mainframe computer provided terminals for many users. In the current age of the personal desktop computer, there is one computer for one person. Observation of early adopters and predictions about the future point to an era where each person will have multiple devices and computational power will be ubiquitous. Against this(More)
The human cytochrome P4503A forms show expression patterns subject to developmental influence. CYP3A7 and CYP3A4 are generally classified as the major fetal and adult liver forms, respectively. However, characterization of CYP3A4, -3A5, and -3A7 developmental expression has historically been confounded by the lack of CYP3A isoform-specific antibodies or(More)
The next generation of human-computer interaction (HCI) is determined by a number of new contexts and challenges that have evolved during the last five to ten years and will be evolving more rapidly in the next five to ten years. They are rooted in new, emerging technologies as well as in new application areas asking for new approaches and visions of the(More)
In this paper, a conceptual model for synchronous applications in ubiquitous computing environments is proposed. To test its applicability, it was used to structure the architecture of the BEACH software framework that is the basis for the software infrastructure of i-LAND (the ubiquitous computing environment at FhG-IPSI). The BEACH framework provides the(More)
We develop a comprehensive approach to the design of information and collaboration environments that support human activities by starting in the real world. Our goal is to design environments that combine the affordances of real objects with potential computer-based support in the virtual world. This combination generates hybrid worlds that have significant(More)
