This tutorial aims to help user interface designers and developers to understand the issues involved in multi-device interactive applications accessed through mobile and stationary devices even exploiting different interaction modalities.
The tutorial aims to help user interface designers and developers to understand the issues involved in multi-device interactive applications. For this purpose it provides a review of the state of art in terms of concepts, techniques, languages, and tools, with the goal to understand the design space of the possible solutions in order to better apply them and think about new ones. The tutorial will consider how to address the device adaptation issue at both design- and run-time. Particular attention will be dedicated to adaptation in Web applications and also to the use of model-based techniques. It will also discuss how adaptation and continuity can be supported in distributed and migratory user interfaces.
The tutorial will be interesting for interactive software developers and designers who want to understand the issues involved in multi-device interactive applications and the space of the possible solutions. Likewise, user interface designers would benefit in that they could work more effectively and make their choices more explicit in designing pervasive interactive services. In addition, other researchers who would like to have an update on the state of art and research results in the field will find the tutorial of interest.
Fabio Paternò is Research Director at CNR-ISTI, where his main research interests are in user interfaces for ubiquitous environments, model-based design and development, tools and methods for multi-device interactive applications, migratory interfaces. In these areas he has coordinated several projects and the development of various tools. He is an ACM Distinguished Scientist.
