Multiple User Interfaces: Cross-Platform Applications and by Ahmed Seffah, Homa Javahery

By Ahmed Seffah, Homa Javahery

A number of consumer Interfaces let humans utilizing cell phones, lap tops, table tops, palm tops or PDAs to entry and skim info from their primary server or the net in a coherent and constant method and to speak successfully with different clients who could be utilizing various units. MUIs offer a number of perspectives of the knowledge in response to the gadget used and co-ordinate communique among the users.Multiple person Interfaces: Engineering and functions Frameworks is the 1st paintings to explain consumer interface layout for cellular and hand held units reminiscent of cell phones. Given the proliferation of books on website design within the past due '90s, this gives you to be the forerunner in a brand new wave of books facing the problems particular to small monitors, restricted reminiscence and instant transmission. It additionally bargains with difficulties in relation to multi-user performance and sharing an identical software over a number of systems. * deals a entire account of cutting-edge examine * Combines human and technical elements together with social interplay, workflow, HCI, & procedure architectures. * presents functional toolkits, guidance and adventure reviews * contains contributions from prime specialists in any respect the main associations - Virginia Tech, Concordia collage, Lancaster college, Ericsson & Intel With this type of designated and state of the art process researchers and builders engaged on person interface layout in businesses production handsets and different transportable units, collage HCI teams and corporations offering web-based info prone for supply to hand held units will locate this integral.

Example text

The model-based techniques proposed for mobile UIs range from relatively low-level implementation solutions, such as the use of abstract and concrete interactor objects, to high-level task-based optimization of the interface’s presentation structure. UI models should factor out different aspects of UI design that are relevant to different contexts of use and should isolate context-independent issues from context-specific ones. As a starting point for research in the field of model-based development for MUIs, the focus should be on task-based models [Patern`o 2001].

These well-known weaknesses of UI patterns should motivate researchers to investigate a systematic approach to support both pattern writers and users alike by automating the development of pattern-assisted design. We should MULTIPLE USER INTERFACES: CROSS-PLATFORM APPLICATIONS AND CONTEXT-AWARE INTERFACES 23 also provide a framework for automating the development of pattern-oriented design. The motivation of such automation is to help novice designers apply patterns correctly and efficiently when they really need them.

It can be interpreted statically (environmental influences are defined during design time) or dynamically (environmental influences are evaluated during run-time). 3. PATTERN-DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT In the field of UI design, a pattern encapsulates a proven solution for a usability problem that occurs in various contexts of use. As an illustration, the convenient toolbar pattern (used on web pages) provides direct access to frequently used pages or services. This pattern, also called Top Level Navigation [Tidwell 1997], can include navigation controls for News, Search, Contact Us, Home Page, Site Map, etc.
