Low Cost User Experience (UX) Design /*
European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics
September 1-3, 2014, Vienna, Austria
Eliezer Kantorowitz (kantor at cs.technion.ac.il)
Designing a computer application to provide a satisfactory user
experience (UX) is often labor intensive. This workshop focuses on
reducing these labor costs. With possible low cost design methods, it
may be affordable to compare a reasonable number of different design
alternatives and select the best one. Possible low cost design methods
may thus facilitate the design of quality UX. Possible low costs methods
may also facilitate empirical cognitive ergonomic research involving a
considerable number of cases.
In order to achieve its goals, the workshop will consider the labor
costs of different UX design methods. The participants of the workshop
have therefore to submit position papers on UX design costs issues.
After the presentation of the position papers, the workshop will discuss
the findings and summarize its observations and possible recommendations.
Examples of topics of possible position paper:
* UX oriented requirements elicitation and task analysis. By UX,
orientation is meant for example avoiding features that the end
users may misunderstand, developing a cognitive coherent model of
the application and validating the UX of this model on prototypes.
* Labor efficient UX evaluation methods, e.g. economic think aloud
techniques, automatic logging and analysis of user actions and fast
prototyping techniques facilitating comparison of the UX of
* Software architectures where it is quite easy to modify the user
interface. This may facilitate a gradual UX improvement process.
* Critical review of published recommendation for user interface
design, e.g. user interface design patterns (interaction design
* Experience reports from industry and education. What were the labor
costs lessons learned?
* Comparison of different methods for doing the same thing from a
labor costs point of view.
* Efficient stakeholder participation methods.
* Agile development issues.
* The psychology and sociology of the UX design team. What team member
qualifications and work methods are most appropriate?
Participation in the workshop requires the acceptance of a position
paper of 1-2 pages. The workshop is limited to 20 participants.
* Submission*July 7*, 2014
* Notification of acceptance July 13, 2014
* Camera ready July 28, 2014
* Workshop Sept. 1, 2014
Submission language is English.
1-2 pages including names, affiliations and emails. Please specify in
the position paper cover email, the name of the author that will present
the paper at the workshop in the workshop. The participation of this
author in the workshop is a requirement for the acceptance of the paper.
Submissions will be handled exclusively through a Conference Management
System at http://ecce14.ce.jku.at/conftool/
In order to assist in planning the workshop, potential authors are
encouraged to inform us as early as possible on their intention to
submit. This may be done through the above-mentioned submission site or
