The 1st IEEE International Workshop on User Centered Design and Adaptive
Systems, UCDAS 2014, is co-located with COMPSAC 2014, The aim of this Workshop is to introduce
the combination of different disciplines to build adaptive systems. Also,
to discuss this approach and the state-of-the-art advances in research and
development of the construction of user-centered adaptive systems. This
Workshop is addressed to researchers from different disciplines in academia
and industry, as well as practitioners, who share interests in adaptive
systems design and development. The focus will be on the processes and
methodologies combining techniques from these disciplines and the
experiences drawn from adaptive system design practice, as well as on
emergent topics.

UCDAS 2014 Theme

An adaptive system changes to improve its performance by adjusting its
operation to the feedback from the users. An adaptive system infers the
goals and needs of users from multiple sources of information in terms of
activity and interests. Research on adaptive systems should be addressed to
identify new means for enriching the user experience through advances in
automated reasoning, adaption and user interface design. User models are
particularly important. To build adaptive systems, a combination of
different disciplines is required, such as usability engineering,
human-computer interaction, software engineering, system engineering,
psychology, and sociology; each one providing its principles and

Topics of interest

Fundamentals and design of adaptive systems; User Modeling and Intelligent
User Interfaces; Psychological Studies; Novel Input Devices and Sensors;
Conversational Systems; Frameworks and Architectures for Adaptive
Supporting Platforms; User and Interaction: Information Access, Filtering,
and Management; Human-Computer Interaction Design and Visualization;
Software Engineering for Adaptive Systems.
