In a near future my PhD work will be used in the DecoSketch project. More precisely, a few months from now a simple 3D shape retrieval mechanism should be integrated in our Computer Aided Decoration prototype. Thus, I am now fully engaged in this project. Today I write the first draft of the protocol for the task analysis. This document is now to be completed in cooperation with the senior year students of this project.

However, this is not what I am looking for. I want a tool that allows me not only to organize but also classify the bibliographic references I use during my research work. This classification should not only focus on the content of the paper but also other information, such as relevance, source, author credibility, affiliated institutions, related projects, etc...
So, I am still looking for such a tool.

Thus, I have finished the initial version of my PhD work plan, depicted below. Next I’m going to present and discuss it with my advisor and co-advisor in order to produce a plan as accurate as possible at this stage.

An windows version of this tool is available for download (ZIP [361KB]) as a compressed stand-alone executable file. Installation or configuration is not required, just unzip and run.

This morning I reviewed the latest version of the template proposal and add some contributions to it.

In order to illustrate how CALI works, I am developing a simple demonstrator that lists in detail the features extracted by CALI for each scribble. A preliminary windows version of this application is now available for download (ZIP [379KB]). This is a compressed stand-alone executable file. Installation or configuration is not required, just unzip and run.

Some of these pages are already accessible in a temporary address, while the CGM server aren't up and running.
I start my research at the CVOnline entry on FD. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I get some empty CD's and started the copy proccess. However, despite my attempts to write at the maximum recording speed (48×), the writing took always about twenty minutes by CD. When I verified the writing speed I noticed that it were 4×.
During the duplication of the last CD, I started labeling the new discs. Then I discovered why the copy was taking so much time. Instead of CD-R discs, I am using CD-RW discs "compatible 1×, 2× & 4×". Damn!!! How can such detail get unnoticed!?
Conclusion: a task that should take a few minutes, consumed more than one hour plus the time I spent trying to "fix" the problem. At least I made some bibliographic research while backing up the CD's.

Although I do not known yet if this paper will be accepted for publication, I need to apply now for fundings in order to have some chances to obtain any sponsorship to attend the conference. Thus I spent this morning preparing the documentation to request funding from Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) and from Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.

Our paper, titled "A Calligraphic Interface for Managing Agents", presents the approach followed during the development of the editION prototype. Unfortunately, due to lack of time, it do not came out as good as we would like to, but we think it was pretty acceptable. Let's wait for the reviewer's comments.

Below I list a simple change that was necessary, but took me lots of time to figure it out:
Where before was:
Now must be:
using namespace std;
So, if you try to compile code in MS VC++7.1 that uses fstream don't forget to specify the namespace you are using. I hope this helps you save precious time.

At the same time, some improvements were made to the user interface. For instance, is now possible to change the code associated with each action.

Currently, the interface is on the early stage of development. However, we expect that within a few weeks a beta version of this tool will be available.
