The abstract, acknowledgements, and complete report can be viewed here - be advised that the complete report is approximately 10 mb and requires Adobe Acrobat Reader (if you don't have the reader, get it here).
Presentations at George Washington University
24 October 2002
I visited George Washington University in the fall of 2002 during the intial research and development of T-MUM. Drs. Martin, Heller, and Aleem were kind enough to invite me to present my theories at their Computer Science Colloquium and also to Dr. Aleem's multimedia class. Feedback during these presentations influenced methods used in later evaluating T-MUM and also the T-MUM model itself. The abstract, my bio (at the time), and PowerPoint slides are available here.
