The Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL) at the University of Maryland
announces its 18th Annual Symposium & Open House and pre-symposium tutorials

and workshops.  This is our annual presentation of research studies and
inspirational prototypes.

This year's inspirations focus on zoomable user interfaces for telling
stories and making presentations, innovative technology for personal photos,

and creative applications by and for children.  Professional breakthroughs
include searching temporal and multiple language databases.  Come and learn
how you can apply these advances to your work.

The tutorials and workshops, which will be held Thursday, May 31, will
feature topics including:
        Introduction to Human-Computer Interaction,
        Introduction to Usability Testing,
        Introduction to Kids, Technology and Education,
        Technologies for families,
        Evaluating Interactive Cross-Language Information Retrieval,
        Treemap Implementations and Applications.

The Symposium and Open House, on Friday, June 1, will include
presentations on the three research topics of the laboratory:
        Mining Creativity,
        Information Exploration,
        Living and Learning.
The Symposium will be followed by the Open House demonstrations in the labs
of the HCIL's newest research.

The registration cost for the Symposium is $170, including videotapes,
technical reports, handouts, and lunch.  Faculty and staff of academic
institutions may register for $100. Graduate and undergraduate students may
register, on a space-available basis and without materials or lunch, at no
cost.  If you are unable to attend and would like a materials package, the
fee will be $70.

Registration for Tutorials costs $200 (includes lunch, handout, and
reception).  Registration for the Workshops requires the permission of the
organizer and costs $45 (includes lunch, handout, and reception).

All paid registrants will receive discounts on books edited by HCIL faculty.
