Publications List


The Smarties system provides an easy way to add mobile interactive support to collaborative applications for wall displays.

Metisse is an X-based window system designed with two goals in mind. First, it should make it easy for HCI researchers to design and implement innovative window management techniques Second, it should conform to existing standards and be robust and efficient enough to be used on a daily basis, making it a suitable platform for the evaluation of the proposed techniques.

I also work on ZVTM (E. Pietriga) and in particular is wall cluster part.

Short Bio

Olivier Chapuis is Research Scientist (CR1) at CNRS. He received his Ph.D. in Mathematics in 1994 from University Paris VII Diderot. He was recruited by the CNRS in 1995 and spent 8 years at Institut Camille Jordan (CNRS & Lyon-I University) where he worked on model theory, group and field theory and algebraic complexity, and published papers in journals such as Journal of Algebra, Annals of Pure and Applied Logic and Journal of Symbolic Logic.

In 2004, he switched to Human-Computer Interaction and joined the InSitu team (LRI -- University Paris-Sud & CNRS, INRIA). His current research mainly concerns window systems and window management, pointing techniques and Fitts' law, multiscale interaction, graphical interaction techniques, wall displays and mobile devices, collaborative interaction, and the evaluation of interactive systems. He has published and served as reviewer and associated chair in conferences such as ACM CHI and ACM UIST and received several best paper awards.

He was interim co-head of the InSitu LRI team from August 2010 to July 2012, since September 2013 he is deputy head of the HCC LRI team, and since July 2014 he is member of the executive team of the LRI. Since Janurary 2015 member of the new ILDA team (Inria Saclay and LRI).
