W2: User centered Evaluations for Ubiquitous Computing Systems: Best Known
Methods

User-centered evaluations must be performed on ubiquitous computing
(ubicomp) systems to determine if they are meeting their users' needs. There
has been a growing number of papers on ubicomp systems in recent literature
that have included user-centered evaluations. In this workshop, we will
leverage this work to see if evaluation practices have evolved to the point
where we as a community can codify and publicize a collection of "best known
methods" and supporting case studies.
Participants are asked to submit a position paper that suggests an
evaluation methodology and provides the methodology's advantages and
disadvantages. Details on the format of the position paper can be found at
www.nist.gov/ubicomp02. Participants should be ready to argue the validity
of their approaches and compare and contrast with other evaluative
techniques. Prior to the workshop, the organizers will group the proposed
methodologies into similar topics and select a participant from each topic
to present those methodologies. This requires pre-workshop interaction
between the participants and organizers. Position papers should not exceed 4
pages.
