UsiXML: USer Interface eXtensible Markup Language

This is a stand in the Belgian National Pavilion, located in Zone B: Belgium National Pavillion. Stand number: B21 - days 1 and 3

The UsiXML (USer Interface eXtensible Markup Language) project is developing an innovative model-driven language to improve user interface design.

Defimedia (as industrial partner) and UCL (as academic partner) are involved in the European ITEA 2 – UsiXML project. The aim of this project is to benefit end-users in term of computing productivity, usability and accessibility by supporting the ‘μ7’ concept. This concept covers multi-device, multi-user, multi-culturalism/lingualism, multi-organisation, multi-context, multi-modality and multi-platform issues. UsiXML is an XML-compliant mark-up language that describes the UI for multiple contexts. In other words, interactive applications with different types of interaction techniques, modalities of use and computing platforms can be described in a way that preserves the design independently from peculiar characteristics of the physical computing platform. This approach is being backed by industrial and academic partners.
