User experience is highly influenced and even changed by the context in which it occurs. In this SIG session we want to discuss how specific contexts influence various aspects of user experience. So far, both concepts "user experience" and "context" have been discussed a lot to various extent and in different dimensions. With this SIG, we aim to bring both concepts together, highlighting the differences arising from the consideration of different specific contexts and their relevant user experience factors. Thus, we reach a more comprehensive understanding of "contextual user experience", which opens up different roads for research and challenges the HCI community in all design and development phases. We will discuss user experience as focal point of user interface and interaction design bound to specific situational cases. © 2010 Copyright is held by the author/owner(s).
