Our multimodal mobile virtual blackboard system enables different forms of communication: chat, VoIP, draw, file exchange. Making small screens of mobile devices more usable can be done by adapting features that an application offers according to the specific user preferences and to the current utilization of the application. In this paper, we describe our approach in development of a multimodal mobile virtual blackboard by using XML agents and fuzzy logic. The general opinion among participans for the interface usability is positive.
