People don't read information on the Web in the same way as they read printed material. Studies have shown that reading on screen is around 25% slower than reading from paper. Instead of carefully reading information, users typically scan it (Morkes & Nielsen, 1997). Users will have time to read 28% of the words if they devote all of their time to...

In this paper, the need of mechanisms of evolution in adaptive hypermedia systems is argued. Moreover, the basic characteristics of these systems are described and the user adaptation carried out in them is situated in the context of evolution models. Finally, SEM-HP, an evolutionary and adaptive hypermedia system, is presented and outlined.

Most of the current hypermedia systems models focus more on edition and document navigation through prefixed links than on the dy- namic construction of the document.

Like other authors, we believe that hypermedia systems, and especially the World Wide Web, can increase and improve their functionality by means of making the semantics of the information system structure explicit. In this paper, we justify the need for a cognitive model in the conception of hypermedia systems. A semantic-dynamic model is presented...

Most of the median-type filters designed to remove impulsive noise process all the pixels in the noisy image. A certain number of non-noisy pixels are thus unexpectedly modified, thereby limiting the quality of the result. Since these pixels need not, and should not, be filtered, the authors propose two approaches for selecting the pixels to be pro...
Article
To remove impulsive noise, several variants of median-type filters are presented. They use some prior information provided by the probabilistic composition model of the class of the image being processed. This information is doubly applied; first, in elaborating a noise-estimation mask for the preselection of the pixels which must be filtered; and...
