Existing research has already explored UX methods from different angles,
whereas a focus on how to combine suitable methods, i.e., triangulation
(also called mixed methods or multi-method approaches), is still
missing. However, deriving UX insights from multiple perspectives to get
a more holistic view on UX is one of the key areas to further improve UX
research.New ways and means to improve a product’s or service’s UX, such
as multi-touchpoint experiences or data-driven methods (e.g., machine
learning) make a holistic contemplation of the concept of UX and its
evaluation necessary. The establishment of mixed-method approaches and
theories can contribute to more reliable, holistic and well-motivated
understandings of the concept of UX. By this, unexpected results can be
disclosed as well as important and unforeseen research questions
generated. At the same time, such a strategy is able to provide answers
to those new questions.Even though a systematical investigation of
multi-method approaches in UX is still missing, researchers and
practitioners have developed their own best practices based on
experiences, reflection, theoretical background, or intuition. This
wide-spread knowledge needs to be brought together, that researchers and
practitioners can learn from each other. By this, basic challenges,
aims, and strategies in UX studies can be uncovered.The investigation of
UX design and evaluation from different perspectives will lead to a more
well-founded understanding and will bring the quality of UX research to
a next level.

Topics of Interest
In particular, we welcome contributions that not only describe a
particular study, but critically deal with the applied methods and
approaches– with focus on multi-method and triangulation strategies.
Topics may include, but are not limited to:

• Motivations and outcomes of different UX research and evaluation
• Conclusions from multiple and different sources, such as qualitative
and quantitative or attitudinal and behavioral data.
• Benefits of combining contrasting theories that exist in UX research.
• Defining best practices and highlighting gaps in mixed method
approaches in the field of UX.
• Reflection on existing work, visionary concepts of UX evaluation
including current challenges and opportunities.
• Data-driven UX methods contrasting currently established UX approaches.
• Holistic UX evaluation with various methods linking user experience
design, service design and brand experience.
