CFP: CHI 2009 Workshop: Challenges in Evaluating Usability and User Experience in Reality Based Interaction
http://faculty.euc.ac.cy/gchristou/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. We invite submissions in the following topics:

* 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.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION
Submissions of 2-4 pages in SIGCHI archive format are to be sent to [log in to unmask] by 23rd October 2008. One author is required to register at the workshop and for one or more days of CHI 2009.
