Understanding adaptive user interfaces

Modern enterprises are heavily dependent on computer systems that often have quite complex user interfaces.  Indeed studies on the effectiveness of enterprise software systems, such as customer relationship management or supply chain management systems, frequently find that usability is one of the main issues.  One of my PhD students, Pierre Akiki is investigating ways of improving this situation be devising a model-driven software framework that will enable adaptive user interfaces for enterprise applications, based on a combination of contextual parameters and user preferences (e.g., depending on the expertise level of the user).  As part of this work, he is conducting a survey of individuals' user interface preferences when undertaking a variety of common tasks.

You can find out more about his work on his webpage on Engineering Adaptive User Interfaces for Enterprise Applications.  You can help with the research by taking the survey linked above!
