Telemedicine creates virtual medical collaborative environments. We propose here a novel concept of virtual medical devices (VMD) for telemedical applications. VMDs provide different views on biomedical recordings and efficient signal analysis. In this paper we present a telemedical EEG analysis environment based on virtual reality technologies. The same(More)
In this paper, we show how spreadsheets, an end-user development paradigm proven to be highly productive and simple to learn and use, can be used for complex service compositions. We identify the requirements for spreadsheet-based service composition, and present our framework that implements these requirements. Our framework enables spreadsheets to send(More)
As of 1 August 2007, SourceForge.net hosted more than 150,000 registered open source software projects, and many more projects are available on other sites. With so many OSS choices, it might seem that building a new application is only a matter of finding the appropriate projects and putting them together. We've developed the adaptable multi-interface(More)
Recent discussions in the interaction design community have called attention to sketching as an omnipresent element of any disciplined activity of design, and have pointed out that sketching should be extended beyond the simple creation of a pencil trace on paper. More specifically, the need to deal with all attributes of a user experience, especially the(More)
In this paper we present a model-driven approach to content repurposing. Our work is inspired by the OMG's Model Driven Architecture (MDA). The MDA is an approach to system specification and interoperability based on the use of hierarchically organized formal models. The MDA approach uses a platform-independent base model (PIM), and one or more(More)
While many multimedia systems allow the association of semantic annotations with media assets, there is no agreed-upon way of sharing these among systems. As an initial step within the multimedia community, we identify a small number of fundamental processes of media production, which we term canonical processes. We specify their inputs and outputs , but(More)
The integration of user customization with authentication follows four patterns. The local-user pattern tightly couples user authentication and customization. The external-user pattern loosely couples customization and authentication so that the customization module relies on the external authentication provider to authenticate users and return their unique(More)
There is a great variety of theoretical models of emotions and implementation technologies which can be used in the design of affective computers. Consequently, designers and researchers usually made practical choices of models and develop ad-hoc solutions that sometimes lack flexibility. In this paper we introduce a generic approach to modeling emotional(More)
