SketchiXML: Towards a Multi-Agent Design Tool for Sketching User Interfaces Based on UsiXML

During these last years, many researchers have proposed new alternatives for early interface design based on handsketch. But these new alternatives seem to be dedicated to obsolescence as they only offer the possibility to generate. Indeed, in a context where the number of computingplatforms and system environments is exploding, new alternatives should be considered. This paper presents an innovating alternative with SketchiXML, a multi-agent application able to handle several kinds of hand-drawn sources as input, and to provide the corresponding specification in USIXML (USer Interface eXtensible Markup Language), a platform-independent user interface description language.
