Workshops (June 21)
End-User Development of Cross-Device User Interfaces
Workshop on Engineering Human-Computer Interaction in Recommender Systems
Engineering Interactive Systems with SCXML
The goal of the XDUI 2016 workshop is to bring together leading and upcoming researchers in the area of multi-device interaction where many different cross-device systems and tools have recently been investigated. This workshop marks a shift from thinking about the technical issues of distributed user interfaces to thinking about the users and enabling cross-device use of existing applications and interfaces. We will discuss the issues specific to end-user development of cross-device user interfaces and develop a research agenda that tackles these issues with solutions suitable for non-technical users. We target both new and established researchers in the area--new researchers will quickly get an overview of the state of the art, while established researchers can bring in their expertise and knowledge of existing cross-device techniques.

Recommender systems are widely used in different interactive applications in order to support the users in exploring items that would be interesting for them. In order to provide such suggestions, recommender systems build an internal representation of the current user according her explicit feedback on the items, such as completing the order of a product. While it has been recognized in literature that such preferences express only extreme ratings (either positive or negative), exploiting implicit feedback is still a challenge in engineering user interfaces. In addition, such systems would benefit from the user's inspection in terms of trust and from the user's control in terms of precision. Different solutions have been discussed to these problems in literature, but a general solution is still lacking and engineering such kind of interfaces is still a challenge. In this workshop, we aim to collect novel ideas in this field and to connect the different researchers working in this area.

The W3C SCXML standard for Harel state-charts, in unison with the W3C MMI architecture specification and related work from the W3C MMI working group are a promising suite of recommendations for interoperable Internet-of-Things applications and appliances. Either in its role as a dialog manager for multi-modal user interfaces or as a general description for reactive systems, SCXML fills an important void in the landscape of available W3C recommendation. This 3rd installment of the workshop will provide a forum for academia and industry alike to present and discuss recent developments with regard to SCXML and to identify extensions and adaptations as part of a continued standardization effort.
