Animated Transitions in User Interface Design.

Speaker:  Jean Vanderdonckt – Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium
Topic(s):  Graphics and Computer-Aided Design


Animated transitions are widely used in many different domains of human activity, ranging from cartoons and movies to computer science for powerfully conveying a message more effectively and efficiently about a phenomenon of interest. This lecture reviews a series of techniques for defining, analyzing, and exploiting animated transitions in different types of interactive systems. A general conceptual model is provided that explicitly links a model of an interactive information system, its model elements and relationships to animated transitions in order to adequately reflect any change of the model into animated transitions. This lecture is abundantly illustrated by examples for user interface design such as: animated transitions for representing user interface adaptation, between user interface views and representations during development life cycle, for information visualization, for graphics, for spreadsheets.
