Keynote talk:

Ubiquitous Computing, Distributed User Interfaces, and Design Patterns: Tackling the challenge of designing for Ubiquitous Interactions

Abstract:

As Mark Weiser's vision for ubiquitous computing is being realised, interaction design must tackle the challenge of designing computer interfaces:

  • distributed across multiple devices, multiple users, and multiple platforms;
  • in the same space or in different geographical spaces;
  • at the same time or at different points in time.

Designing for these distributed user interfaces requires dealing with emerging key aspects of interaction design such as parallelism and distribution, among others. Design patterns, initially proposed by Christopher Alexander as a way of documenting solutions for specific design challenges have been used in the past to support interaction design challenges. In his talk, David draws on previous work on ubiquitous computing, distributed interfaces and design patterns to introduce ongoing work on the definition of a pattern language for ubiquitous interactions.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Bartosz Broda, Samsung Polska

Bartosz Broda

Profile:

Bartosz Broda finished his PhD in Natural Language Processing (NLP) at Wrocław University of Technology. During his research work at the university he tackled many NLP problems, with the main emphasis on large scale statistical methods. Among others, he contributed to development of Polish wordnet (plWordNet), feasibility prototype of Polish CLARIN centre and Jasnopis.pl. Currently he works on text readability in cooperation with University of Social Sciences and Humanities (SWPS) and Institute of Computer Science, Polish Academy of Sciences. Bartosz is also leading advanced research NLP projects in Samsung R&D Institute Poland. He deepened his understanding of psychological aspects of human language during his postgraduate coaching studies at SWPS. Additionally, he is a coach in his company called BB Coaching.

Keynote talk:

The Role of Natural Language Processing in User Interfaces

Abstract:

The main role of user interface is to facilitate communication between humans and machines. Contemporary applications present new challenges for user interface (UI) designers. Computer programs took a long way from offline desktop use cases to web, mobile, smart TV and smartwatch environments. This environment diversity and great variety of new constrains create new challenges for UI designers. The emerging concept of the Internet of Things raises the complexity even further. Moreover, today we live in permanent information overload, which should be taken into account while designing the user experience.

In his talk, Bartosz will draw on his experience in Natural Language Processing to discuss aspects of interface design that can be approached via interaction based on natural language. He will focus on the role of speech and handwriting recognition and their use in modern user interfaces. He will also address often overlooked aspect of content-rich applications (for example, web applications): readability of text communicated to the user.
