Development of XML-based Tools to Support User Interaction with Algorithm Visualizations

Working Group at ITiCSE 2005, June 25 - 29, 2005

Jointly chaired by Tom Naps and Guido Rößling

Algorithm Visualization seems to be most effective when it is combined with engaging interaction. To make adding interaction elements easier and portable, the Working Group will begin the process of creating a set of design specifications for tools that support portability. The tools will facilitate sharing some of the following types of resources across different AV systems:

To ensure portability across different AV systems, each of the support tools will present its associated data to the AV systems in XML form. The working group therefore also has to design an XML language for describing the components. After ITiCSE 2005, a team of participants shall begin implementing a parser for this language that converts the XML into an object tree. This object tree can then be encoded in an appropriate way for the set of supported tools.
