Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4061)


In this paper I will present an approach to design custom user interfaces in order to tailor the human-machine-interaction to individual user skills and preferences. These so called input profiles play a crucial role in the HeadControl+ framework [2].
