Registered author(s):

    The paper proposes a new improved algorithm for creating hierarchies of features and options for self-adapting user interfaces against the common one used by many applications. The user interface concept is presented. Types of user interfaces are given. Quality characteristics of the user interfaces are analyzed. Ways of fulfilling these quality characteristics while keeping the costs low are discussed. Advantages and disadvantages of self-adapting and static user interfaces are given. The most common algorithm for creating hierarchies of features and options is described and analyzed. The common algorithm is improved through dependencies add-on. The advantages and disadvantages of the proposed algorithm are discussed. New directions for the development of the self-adapting user interfaces are highlighted.
