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

** Overview
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.

** Submission
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.

Contributions can be sent by email to 
[log in to unmask] If you have any question 
don’t hesitate to contact the organizers.

** Schedule
July 7th 2017 – Submission of position papers
July 21st 2017 – Notifications to workshop participants of acceptance 
into workshops.
July 31st 2017 – Camera-ready workshop papers due for extended abstracts
September 25th 2017 – Workshop

** 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.
