Advanced graphical interfaces are increasingly dynamic, multimodal and involve multithreaded dialogues. This paper provides a theoretical perspective that can support an analysis of the issues involved in their use; the Interacting Cognitive Subsystems (ICS) framework. This framework is used to examine alternative ways in which information from different data streams can be blended with in perception, thought and control of action. The potential applicability of the core constructs to the interface design is considered. The paper concludes by outlining a specific strategy for bringing this form of understanding into closer harmony with the formal methods community in computer science.
