Short Abstract: With the advent of in-home networking, all kinds of interactive applications will emerge that do not just run on a single consumer electronics device, but can be run on/from different devices in the network. Therefore, at Philips Research, we aim to provide solutions for authoring user interfaces of networked applications in a device independent way, so that these user interfaces can be easily adapted to run on a variety of devices. Our goal is to minimize the authoring effort for developing user interfaces for different devices, whilst at the same time allowing the author to fully exploit the UI capabilities of these devices.

This presentation gives an overview of the techniques we are using and developing in order to make user interfaces (more) device independent. Examples of these techniques are abstraction, prioritization and advanced stylesheet mechanisms. Furthermore, we will present the approach that we take for authoring device independent user interfaces and how these can be transformed into concrete user interfaces. We conclude with an overview of the challenges that we face, and that have to be solved in order for device independent UI authoring to be successful.

Short Bio: Walter Dees is a research scientist at Philips Research in Eindhoven. His main research topic is UI software architectures for networked applications with a focus on device independence. He has a master's degree in computer science and a post-master's degree in software design, both of which he obtained at Eindhoven University of Technology.
