We started by presenting the Interaction Museum project and its current state. Here are the background documents and the handouts of the presentations (PDF):

We had asked the participants to come to the symposium with material from their own work that they could use to create one or more entries. We worked in pairs to create the following entries based on the entry template :

Then each group presented their entry :

Desktop wallpaper (William Newman & Caroline Appert)
Wallpaper is the background screen colour or pattern to the windows on a GUI display.

Icons on the Star, Sapphire and Macintosh (Brad Myers & Nicolas Roussel)

In Star and Viewpoint, icons represent objects rather than processes.

Fluid documents (Polle Zellweger & Wendy Mackay)
Fluid documents use lightweight interactive animation to incorporate annotations in their context.

Fold'n'drop (Pierre Dragicevic & Patrick Baudisch)
A variation of drag-and-drop designed for wall-size touch or pen-based displays, drag-and-pop bridges long distances by bringing potential targets to the user.

Drag and pop (Patrick Baudisch & Pierre Dragicevic)
Allows users to drag icons into a currently obscured window by folding the occluding windows back.

Audiostreamer (Chris Schmandt & Michel Beaudouin-Lafon)
AudioStreamer improves the perception of multiple simultaneous spatialized audio streams.

Eye tracking (Robert Jacob & Yves Guiard)
This entry shows some early eye movement-based interaction techniques.

We closed the symposium with a discussion.
