Playing Applets!?

Interactive overview of an academic conference
visualizing the relationships between papers which would be presented at an international conference held in 1996 summer. I've prepared this with the information which I could get before the conference, e.g., prensenter names, paper titles, and their abstracts, in order to enable the potential participants to preview the conference beforehand.
A page of visualization of social networkds
including applets prototyped in the research on community supports, and links for related works.
