The increasing need to access information everywhere and at any time leads us to believe that future user interfaces, through which users interact with pervasive computing systems, must address both device and modality independence. The pervasive computing paradigm sees almost every object in the everyday environment as a system able to communicate with(More)

The life cycle of the clinical trial is therefore based on a planning and definition phase, a next experimental phase connected with its diffusion to the involved centres and finally an(More)

However, the naturalness of the interaction implies that it is hard to find one and only one interpretation of the users' input. Consequently the necessity to define methods for users' input interpretation and ambiguity detection is arising. This paper proposes a(More)
