Abstract: This report contains citations and abstracts of papers and presentations produced during the fourth year of the U.S. Army's Federated Laboratory (FedLab) program. The program was formed in 1996 to establish partnerships among the Army, industry, and academic research communities. The Advanced Displays and Interactive Displays consortium seeks to provide innovative, cost-effective solutions to information access, understanding, and management for the soldier of the future. The research encompasses a range of topics. Some work deals with the representation of uncertainty and imprecision in databases, or with the representation of relationships in multimedia databases, in ways that are compatible with human cognitive-processing capabilities. Other work adopts the means of human communication (such as speech, gesture, eye gaze, and lip-reading) for human-computer interaction. Additional work explores methods for incorporating information in virtual- reality displays that support decision making without distracting or overwhelming the soldier. Although diverse, the research is linked by its overriding goal: the presentation of information in a form that allows effective human understanding and decision making in complex battlefield situations.
