User evaluations can be expensive and are also often non-repeatable. An alternative way of evaluating such systems is the use of simulations. In this poster, we present an evaluation methodology which is based on exploiting log files recorded from a user-study we conducted.</ABSTRACT><URL>http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1378889.1378999</URL></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
