Abstract

Adaptive applications establish the basis for many ubiquitous computing scenarios as they can dynamically adapt to changing contexts. But adaptive applications lack of success when the adaptive behaviour does not correspond to the user’s interaction habits. A user study revealed that such applications are not satisfying for complex scenarios with a high degree of user interaction. We claim that there must be a trade-off between automation and user participation. By extending an existing adaptation middleware with capabilities to respect user preference and interaction behaviour we demonstrate how to integrate the user in the self-adaptation loop. Interdisciplinary results from the fields of usability engineering and interaction design include the need for an adaptation notification concept to avoid mismatching adaptation behaviour.
