tionship indicates how multimodal medical image processing can be unified to a large extent, e. g. multi-channel segmentation and image registration, and extend information theoretic registration to other features than image intensities. The framework is not at all restricted to medical images though and this is illustrated by applying it to multimedia sequences as well. In Chapter 4, the main results from the developments in plastic UIs and mul- modal UIs are brought together using a theoretic and conceptual perspective as a unifying approach. It is aimed at defining models useful to support UI plasticity by relying on multimodality, at introducing and discussing basic principles that can drive the development of such UIs, and at describing some techniques as proof-of-concept of the aforementioned models and principles. In Chapter 4, the authors introduce running examples that serve as illustration throughout the d- cussion of the use of multimodality to support plasticity.Semi-automated and manual transformations may be performed by designers and/or end-users. ... The only constraint is that the hand-coded executable piece be encapsulated as a service. ... The use of multiple modalities, especially at run- time, opens new doors for more usable user interfaces than ever. Let us hope that this odyssey in a world of multiple modalities will bring us with clear decisions for the ultimate benefit of the end-user, not only for designers or developers.
