    Mixed reality user interface description language



     Realizing user interfaces for applications running on different hardware and software platforms often requires individual implementations for each platform. User interface description languages (UIDLs) provide a general solution for this problem, but typically lack support for 3D and especially Mixed Reality (MR) user interfaces [Figueroa et al. 2002] [Ledermann and Schmalstieg 2005]. Developing such user interfaces is rather challenging, though, as a variety of interaction devices exist and the interaction techniques are more complex and diverse.
