CFP: CHI 2009 Workshop: Challenges in Evaluating Usability and User Experience in Reality Based Interaction

http://faculty.euc.ac.cy/gchristou/workshop/

CHI Workshop on Challenges in Evaluating Usability and User Experience
    in Reality Based Interaction
    http://faculty.euc.ac.cy/gchristou/workshop/

The emergence of Post-WIMP interfaces led to new ways of interacting
with technology. However, there are still no integrated ways of
evaluating the usability and user experience of these
interfaces. Developers and designers are left to discover their own
evaluation methods. This approach presents problems, as methods used
in each case may provide results that are neither valid nor
meaningful. Thus, the time is ripe to integrate the methods that have
been developed for evaluating interfaces that belong to the RBI
umbrella.

This workshop will further the understanding of the challenges
relating to evaluation methods specific to RBIs, and will identify
effective practical responses to these challenges. We will enhance and
promote the collaboration between researchers and practitioners that
work in the field of design and evaluation of RBIs by
cross-pollinating the work done in the RBI constituent interaction
styles. We invite submissions in the following topics:

   * Case studies of evaluations that applied a specific measure or
     evaluation method to RBI applications.

   * Experimental studies of evaluation methods that hold potential
     for use in applied RBI settings.

   * Conceptual frameworks that enable the evaluation of RBIs through
     subjective and objective measures.

   * Studies that provide connections between user experience and
     usability measures in RBI contexts.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION

Submissions of 2-4 pages in SIGCHI archive format are to be sent to
g.christou@euc.ac.cy by 23rd October 2008. One author is required to
register at the workshop and for one or more days of CHI 2009.
