In this paper, we focus on the design of systems intended to be shared by culturally heterogeneous users (e.g., users of Computer-Supported Co-operative Work (CSCW) and Internet applications). We discuss the limitations of current approaches to designing interfaces for culturally diverse users such as intemationalisation and localisation before describing a(More)
There is increasing evidence of T cell dysfunction in B cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (B-CLL) which may contribute to the aetiology and progress of the disease. An absolute CD8+ lymphocytosis correlates with disease progression and low expression of CD4 and CD8 (as found in autoimmune disease) is seen with abnormal expression of other surface(More)
B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (B-CLL) is characterized by an accumulation of clonal malignant B cells. The intrinsic characteristics that permit this accumulation have been extensively studied and described. However, it is possible that proliferation and survival of this malignant clone is facilitated by a disruption in the interaction between B and(More)
This paper intends to illustrate how user interface designers can apply the Meaning in Mediated Action (MIMA) approach (P. Bourges-Waldegg, A.R. Scrivener, Meaning; the central issue is crosscultural HCI design, Interacting with Computers, 9 (3) (1998) 287±310, special issue on aShared Values and Shared Interfaceso) to design for culturally diverse user(More)
Previous research investigating sketching processes during object visualisation and design has indicated that drawing occurs in a primarily part-by-part manner, whereby the component structures of objects appear to dominate the organisation of ongoing activity. Some non-part-by-part sketching does arise, however, and appears to be closely linked with those(More)
The design and development of large pictorial databases represents a considerable challenge to the design of ef fective interfaces and query mechanisms . This paper reviews a project concerned with the development of theories of spatial cognition and their application to the design of pictorial databases . The aim is to investigate the feasibility of(More)
Interactive exhibits in museums are providing exciting and dynamic learning experiences with significant potential to stimulate children's creativity. However, current sophisticated interfaces designed to deliver easily accessible information are not teaching the fundamental skills necessarily to foster genuine creative outcomes. The aim of our research is(More)
