ERCIM - the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics - aims to foster collaborative work within the European research community and to increase co-operation with European industry. Leading research institutes from eighteen European countries are members of ERCIM.

ERCIM Working Group "User Interfaces for All" (UI4ALL)

The ERCIM Working Group "User Interfaces for All" (UI4ALL) was initiated in 1995 against the background of European R&D activities which had analysed the requirements, identified the viability, and demonstrated the feasibility of constructing "user interfaces for all", i.e., interfaces which address the individual user requirements of potentially all users.

It has been successfully argued that alternative, technologically more powerful and methodologically more systematic approaches are needed to tackle the problems of accessibility and quality of interaction for all potential users in the emerging Information Society. The challenge of this ERCIM Working Group is to follow a path that, apart from meeting certain technical objectives, will bring closer together researchers and teams working in the different ERCIM organisations (but also organisations beyond ERCIM or the European boundaries), who share common interests and aspirations, and would like to contribute to the endeavours towards making the emerging Information Society equitably accessible and usable by a diverse user population with different abilities, skills, requirements and preferences.
