Nebeling, Michael, Speicher, Maximilian and Norrie, Moira C. (2013): W3touch: metrics-based web page adaptation for touch. In: Proceedings of CHI 2013 Conference on Human Factors in Computing April 27-May 2, 2013, Paris, France. pp. 2311-2320.

Web designers currently face the increased proliferation and diversity of new touch devices which pose major challenges to the design task. This paper presents W3Touch--an interface instrumentation toolkit for web designers to collect user performance data for different device characteristics in order to help them identify potential design problems for touch interaction. Web designers can visualise the data aggregated by W3Touch and use simple metrics to automate the adaptation process for many different viewing and interaction contexts. In a series of experiments with web designers and users, we show that W3Touch is able to detect interaction problems that are hard to find using conventional methods and demonstrate how the tool was successfully used to automate the desktop-to-mobile migration of Wikipedia as an example.

Nebeling, Michael, Speicher, Maximilian and Norrie, Moira C. (2013): CrowdAdapt: Enabling Crowdsourced Web Page Adaptation for Individual Viewing Conditions and Preferences. In: Proceedings of the 5th ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems EICS 2013 June 24-27, 2013, London, United Kingdom. .

The range and growing diversity of new devices makes it increasingly difficult to design suitable web interfaces for every browsing client. We present CrowdAdapt--a context-aware web design tool that supports developers in the creation of adaptive layout solutions for a wide variety of use contexts by crowdsourcing web site adaptations designed for individual viewing conditions and preferences. We focus on one experiment we conducted for an existing news web site using CrowdAdapt (i) to explore the design space in terms of layout alternatives created by the crowd, (ii) to identify adaptation preferences with respect to different viewing situations, and (iii) to assess the perceived quality of crowd-generated layouts in terms of reading comfort and efficiency. The results suggest that crowdsourced adaptation could lead to very flexible web interfaces informed by individual end-user requirements. In particular, scenarios such as the adaptation to large-screen contexts that the majority of web sites fail to address could be supported with relatively little effort.

Nebeling, Michael and Norrie, Moira (2012): jQMultiTouch: lightweight toolkit and development framework for multi-touch/multi-device web interfaces. In: ACM SIGCHI 2012 Symposium on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems 2012. pp. 61-70.

Application developers currently have to deal with the increased proliferation of new touch devices and the diversity in terms of both the native platform support for common gesture-based interactions and touch input sensing and processing techniques, in particular, for custom multi-touch behaviours. This paper presents jQMultiTouch -- a lightweight web toolkit and development framework for multi-touch interfaces that can run on many different devices and platforms. jQMultiTouch is inspired from the popular jQuery toolkit for implementing interfaces in a device-independent way based on client-side web technologies. Similar to jQuery, the framework resolves cross-browser compatibility issues and implementation differences between device platforms by providing a uniform method for the specification of multi-touch interface elements and associated behaviours that seamlessly translate to browser-specific code. At the core of jQMultiTouch is a novel input stream query language for filtering and processing touch event data based on an extensible set of match predicates and aggregate functions. We demonstrate design simplicity for developers along several example applications and discuss performance, scalability and portability of the framework.

Nebeling, Michael, Matulic, Fabrice and Norrie, Moira C. (2011): Metrics for the evaluation of news site content layout in large-screen contexts. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 1511-1520.

Despite the fact that screen sizes and average screen resolutions have dramatically increased over the past few years, little attention has been paid to the design of web sites for large, high-resolution displays that are now becoming increasingly used both in enterprise and consumer spaces. We present a study of how the visual area of the browser window is currently utilised by news web sites at different widescreen resolutions. The analysis includes measurements of space taken up by the article content, embedded ads and the remaining components as they appear in the viewport of the web browser. The results show that the spatial distribution of page elements does not scale well with larger viewing sizes, which leads to an increasing amount of unused screen real estate and unnecessary scrolling. We derive a number of device-sensitive metrics to measure the quality of web page layout in different viewing contexts, which can guide the design of flexible layout templates that scale effectively on large screens.
