ABOUT THE 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. The following topics will be discussed:

  • 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.
  • Position papers on new evaluation methods or measures suitable for the evaluation of RBIs.
