2011 Poster Sessions : Automatically Adapting Web Pages to Heterogeneous Devices

Student Name : Chinmay Kulkarni
Advisor : Scott Klemmer
Research Areas: Graphics/HCI
Abstract:
Smartphones and other handheld devices have become popular and powerful Internet access devices, yet the Web is still largely optimized for the desktop. We describe a system that automatically transforms desktop optimized pages to ones better suited to the target device. The system leverages existing platform customized sites as examples of good design, identifies consistent components across these sites, and renders the desktop page into these components.
