3 companies (defIMedia, See & Touch and the UCL) joined forces as part of the ICT 2010 Forum to present their involvement in the European ITEA2 – UsiXML project.
The UsiXML project develops an innovative model driven language to improve the UI design, for the benefit of both industrial end-users actors in term of productivity & reusability; usability & accessibility by supporting the “μ7” concept: multi-device, multi-user multi-culturality/linguality, multi-organisation, multicontext, multi-modality and multi-platform. The approach is ensured by a relevant consortium involving the main contributors of the UsiXML community, industrial partners and academic partners that are able to challenge it for realistic and complex industrial cases design and development. Important European market impacts are awaited in next decades on multiple segments with a real gain for European industries, employees and citizens.
