    ABSTRACT

    This workshop is aimed at reviewing and comparing existing Usability Evaluation Methods (UEMs) which are applicable to monomodal and multimodal applications, whether they are web-oriented or not.

    It addresses the problem on how to assess the usability of monomodal user interfaces according to techniques involving one or several modalities, in parallel or combined. In particular, how to synchronize results provided by different UEMs producing various types of results (e.g., audio, video, text, log files) is concerned.

    It also addresses the problem on how to assess the usability of multimodal user interfaces according to techniques based on multiple modalities. In particular, the question of generalizing the applicability of existing UEMs to these new types of user interfaces is concerned.
