IFIP WG 13.2 + 13.5 *Workshop on Dealing with Conflicting User Interface
Properties in User-Centered Development Processes*
In conjunction with INTERACT 2017, September 25th 2017, Mumbai, India
Whilst *usability*, *accessibility* and, more recently, user experience
have been prominent in the HCI research other properties such as
*privacy*, *trust*, *security*, and *reliability* (among others) might
also affect the development process of interactive systems. In some
cases, a property might complement or enlarge the scope of another. For
example, whilst accessibility addresses the needs of impaired users to
accomplish their tasks with the system, *UX* goes beyond the pragmatic
aspect of usability by taking into account dimensions such as *emotion*,
*aesthetics* or *visual appearance*, *identification*, *stimulation*,
*meaning/value* or even fun, enjoyment, pleasure or flow state
experience. In some situations, a property might be tributary to another
one such is the case of reliability and usability when non reliability
of interactive software can jeopardize usability evaluation by showing
unexpected or undesired behaviors. Moreover, there are some evidence
that properties can *trade off against each other* as it is the case of
usability and security. For example, requiring users to change their
passwords periodically may improve security but reduce usability as it
represents a burden for users to frequently create and remember
passwords. As a consequence, users might be keen to workarounds, such as
when users take hard notes of hard-to-remember passwords. *Conflicting*
user interface properties often appear in recommendations for user
interface design. In this workshop we aimed at enlarge the scope of the
research and promote the study of the interplay of multiple user
interface properties in a user-centered design process.
Our aim is to cover a large set of user interface properties and try to
reveal their *inner dependencies*. We are also interested in understand
how different stakeholders value user interface properties. In a long
run, this workshop aims at helping the development of theories, methods,
tools and approaches for dealing with multiple properties that should be
taken into account when developing interactive system.
Position paper (6-10 pages in LNCS format) must report practical
experiences related to research results on user experience (UX) and
user-centered development processes for interactive systems.
All selected contributions will appear in the adjunct conference
proceedings of INTERACT 2017. After the workshop, selected papers will
be considered to a post-conference publication in the SPRINGER LNCS
series. For that, we will invite authors revise their work according to
the comments received during the workshop and prepare a full paper that
should be published by November 2017 (tentative).
Submission don’t need to be anonymous.

** Target audience
This workshop is open to everyone who is interested in multiple user
interface properties while building their systems and how different
these are valued by different stakeholders.
It is jointly organized by the members of IFIP WG 13.2 and IFIP WG 13.5.
