Editorial Reviews


This book brings together for the first time all major approaches to User Interface Management Systems (UIMS) development from a programmer's algorithmic perspective. The various models for describing dialogs and generating user interfaces are discussed within the framework of a general UIMS architecture. Extensive examples are included to reinforce the concepts presented and applications for each approach are described. This guide will provide professional programmers with a understanding of the algorithms necessary to implement UIMSs. Readers without a programming background can use this book without prior user interface experience. -- Book Description

More About the Author

Dan Olsen is a technologist. He is excited by how things work and how to build them. His medium of choice is software. Algorithms, data structures, tricks of implementation and insight into how new things can be built are fundamental to his research. However, he believes that people are more important than machines. Computers were created to serve human beings. Mastery of interactive software is essential to making machines that serve.

Dan is a Professor of Computer Science at Brigham Young University where he directs the ICE Lab (Interactive Computing Everywhere). He teaches courses in interactive system design. His research interests have covered robotics, wireless displays, interactive television, windowing systems, software toolkits, camera-based interaction and interactive machine learning.

He currently serves as the Vice President of Publications for ACM's Special Interest Group on Computer Human Interaction (SIGCHI). He was the founding editor of ACM's Transactions on Computer Human Interaction and the first director of the Human Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. He is an ACM Fellow and a member of the CHI Academy.
