About This Volume

Information on the Content of this Volume - Authors in this volume were offered the opportunity not only to provide written articles, but also to provide supplementary materials including PowerPoint presentations, animations, color illustrations, software code, and data files. Many chose to do so; indeed, some authors provided PowerPoint presentations, but no written articles. For this reason, we have chosen to present materials in both an Adobe pdf format (master.pdf) and in a web-based html format (index.htm). These files may be found in the root directory. The master.pdf file is a "book image" file, i.e. is the electronic form of the traditional book. Within the master.pdf file, if the author(s) provided no article, only the abstract is given. If a PowerPoint presentation was provided, we have provided a link to the PowerPoint presentation within the master.pdf file. Some presenters chose not to provide any material for the Proceedings. In those cases, their abstracts appear in the master.pdf file and in the original website only.

The papers, discussions, and related materials in this volume are reproduced exactly as received from the authors. This issue contains the Proceedings of the 35th Symposium on the Interface and the materials contained in this volume are presumed to be essentially as given at the 35th Symposium on the Interface. The papers have been reviewed for appropriateness of content. Some papers have been refereed at the request of the authors and were presented in refereed sessions. These sessions are marked in these Proceedings. Papers presented in sessions that are not explicitly marked as refereed have not been refereed. The editors or publisher make no claim as to the originality or accuracy of unrefereed papers.

The Interface Foundation of North America, Inc. does not copyright this periodical volume although authors may copyright individual items. If no copyright notice is given, it is presumed that the author(s) have given permission to freely copyright the content provided only that you cite the source. Publication in this volume does not preclude authors from submitting papers to other publications elsewhere.

This volume is presented electronically. For those interested in a hard copy, printing the master.pdf file on a duplex color printer will result in a paper copy of this volume that may be bound. Because of this, citations in this volume may be given in a traditional manner. Examples are given below.

Page numbers are the traditional means of uniquely locating an article within a paper volume. For an electronic volume, the directory structure uniquely locates an article within an electronic volume. Therefore an alternative citation may be given by citing the appropriate directory location for the article. An example is given below.

Information on the Content of this Volume - Authors in this volume were offered the opportunity not only to provide written articles, but also to provide supplementary materials including PowerPoint presentations, animations, color illustrations, software code, and data files. Many chose to do so; indeed, some authors have chosen to present PowerPoint presentation, but no formal articles.

In general, Adobe pdf files may be supplied with embedded fonts or as bit-mapped images. Generally speaking, articles that were supplied to the editors as postscript files, especially those originally edited on Unix machines, are produced as bit-mapped pdf files, while those originating on Windows machines with scalable fonts are produced as pdf files with embedded fonts. The bit-mapped pdf files have poorer low-resolution screen appearance, but are essentially indistinguishable from pdfs with embedded fonts in high-resolution printed versions. Please not also that, because of the limitations in Adobe Acrobat, it is not possible to add page numbers after postscript or pdf files have been produced. Thus although page numbers are assigned to individual articles in the table of contents, the page numbers do not appear on individual articles.

Some authors provided additional materials that were not linkable within the Adobe pdf framework. For this reason and in order to provide more direct access to individual files, we have provided access through a web browser. This CD provides not only the book image master.pdf file, but also individual files provided by the authors. These are accessible through the index.html file. We also provide, in the root directory, a copy of Acrobat Reader. Please note in order to provide maximum compatibility that pdf files in this volume were produced with Adobe Acrobat 4.0. Earlier versions of Acrobat Reader may not be able to read the pdf files produced with Adobe Acrobat 4.0.
