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
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. The following
topics will be discussed:
studies of evaluations that applied a specific measure or evaluation
method to RBI applications.
studies of evaluation methods that hold potential for use in applied
frameworks that enable the evaluation of RBIs through subjective and
that provide connections between user experience and usability
measures in RBI contexts.
papers on new evaluation methods or measures suitable for the
evaluation of RBIs.
