An Approach to Virtual Research Environment User Interfaces Dynamic Construction
Virtual Research Environments are internet-based working environments tailored to serve needs of diverse and evolving user communities. These environments are oriented to promote new ways of dealing with modern research tasks. Their realization requires user interfaces that are dynamically built to provide their clients with organised views on the data and services aggregated to meet specific community needs. This paper presents an approach to the problem of Virtual Research Environment user interfaces dynamic construction. This approach is characterized by user interfaces built through a component-oriented strategy and an heuristic for user interface constituents arrangement on the screen. The implementation and exploitation of the proposed approach in the context of the D4Science-II, EU funded project is discussed as well as future plans are presented.
