Reviews and Testimonials

This book provides theoretical and practical scenarios, concepts, methodologies, standards, definitions and applications used to design and develop multimodal systems, focusing on mobile devices and pervasive services. It gives an overview of the existing works in this sector, discussing the different strategies adopted for the fusion input process, optimization processes on mobile devices, ambiguity and error handling related to one or more modalities, the fission process, the personalization and adaptation of multimodal mobile services and the accessibility and usability criteria.
