Engineering interactive systems that are aware of the characteristics and constraints of the context of the user becomes challenging when several user’s profiles, platforms and environments are considered. In this sense the adaptation of user interfaces raises as an important approach for stakeholders aiming at implementing and providing systems whose user interfaces are usable, regardless of their context of use. In 2012 during the first CASFE workshop we discussed potential models, frameworks and practical applications that aim at supporting, facilitating and improving the development of adaptive and adaptable systems. CASFE’2013 aims at joining experts in the domain of context-aware adaptation in order to present and discuss its state-of -the-art.
Francisco Javier Caminero Gil is the project coordinator of the FP7-ICT5-SERENOA (Multidimensional context-aware adaptation of Service Front-ends) project funded by the European Commission.
Fabio Paternò is Research Director at CNR-ISTI, where he leads the HIIS laboratory, and Co-Chair for the Ambient Intelligence Conference 2012. He is also the chair of the IFIP Working Gorup on User Interface Engineering.
Vivian Genaro Motti is a PhD candidate at Université catholique de Louvain, in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. She works as a research assistant for Serenoa project and collaborates in the W3C working group for model-based user interfaces.
The workshop will last half day (Monday morning) dedicated to discuss and review the state-of-the-art in the area of context-aware adaptation: a design space for context-aware adaptation of user interfaces, criteria and requirements for Adaptation Specification Languages (ASL), common formats for expressing adaptation rules, etc. Selected papers will be presented, resulting into an updated and accurate version of the workshop material. A video projector will be used for presentations.
The CASFE’2013 workshop will be held on June 24th, 2013 (Monday morning).
Participants are welcome from any background or discipline that is concerned by context-aware adaptation ranging from psychology, social sciences to computer science. The expected amount of participants will be around 15, but it can be extended depending on the interest of the topic. We will also accept attendees who have not submitted any work to the workshop provided that they have already worked in this domain (e.g., based on publications or implemented products or services).
The submissions include: short papers describing initial results, ongoing work, and innovative proposals, up to 4 pages; and long papers describing conclusive results, up to 8 pages.
Submissions: April 8th Extended to April 29th
Notifications: April 29th May 6th
Camera Ready Versions: May 13th June 3rd
