There is a general enthusiastic call for smart applications nowadays. People are now accustomed to mobile devices and require applications that fit and exploit this modality of interaction even more. Smart applications aim to address needs and requirements of 21st century systems, including context-aware, ubiquitous, mobile, adaptive and personalized, along with other new technologies and methods related with natural user interfaces, augmented reality, serious games for education and training. At the same time, employing such sophisticated systems requires rigorous evaluation right from the beginning.
Call for papers concerns both Design and Evaluation of personalized user interfaces.
Main topics for the Design track include but are not limited to:
- ubiquitous applications that can be provided as a service and can be used on any mobile device, with no need for installation or software updates,
- proactive user interfaces that track their progress, adapt to their needs and prompt them without being disruptive or inconvenient and provide analytics and predictive instruments,
- smart and personalized information services to explore, to search, to interact, to share, to practice, to discover qualitative content that fit their diverse and changing needs.
- understanding and representing content, users, devices and situations where interaction happens, with special focus on semantics.
Main topics for the Evaluation track include but are not limited to:
- lessons learned from the successful application of multi-method evaluations,
- post mortem analyses describing specific evaluation strategies that failed to uncover decisive elements,
- overview papers analyzing patterns of challenges or obstacles to multi-method evaluation,
- solution papers presenting solutions towards identified challenges.
The workshop aims to provide a forum for:
- facilitating discussion among various stakeholders
- sharing best practice
