Abstract : An overview of these sessions indicated that: (a) there is an under-emphasis on science within the laboratories; in other words, the Navy is failing to provide a basis for developing HCI systems; (b) there is insufficient attention given to interactive aspects in HCI systems; that is, many Navy systems access, display, or store data rather than allow the user to manipulate, compute or analyze information; (c) there are too few opportunities for formal test and evaluation of component design alternatives during development; and (d) many Navy HCI groupd are isolated; therefore, an annual workshop would useful for sharing knowledge and fostering presentations on state-of-the-art research.
