with ICSE 2012, the 34th International Conference on Software Engineering, and the
Second International Workshop, UsARE 2014, held in Karlskrona, Sweden, in August
2014, in the course of RE 2014, the 22nd International Requirements Engineering
This book consists of 10 chapters of which 9 are extended versions of the papers
presented at the two UsARE events. Amongst them, 3 are extended versions of the

UsARE 2014 - rounded off by a new chapter that was added as authors are doing
relevant work on the same topic. The chapters are organized into three sections
according to their main focus: usability and user experience, accessibility and


adaptable and adaptive systems human-computer interaction interaction design software development user-centered design accessibility augmentative and alternative communication empirical studies HCI design and evaluation methods health informatics interactive agents participatory design persuasive technology requirements engineering (RE) scenarios self-management software engineering usability user experience virtual community
