An Interactive System Based on Semantic Graphs

Abstract : This paper introduces an original method towards post-WIMP desktops. Our main contribution involves a new way of organizing desktops with respect of the Instrumental Interaction model and relies on semantic graphs. A semantic graph expresses semantic dependencies of documents or components like a scene graph expresses geometrical dependency. This structure allows users to visualize the desktop given a chosen criterion. We also propose polymorphic tools that enable Direct Manipulation: tools directly modify the semantic visual factor leading to a semantic modification of object. A prototype is proposed to illustrate this concept.
