    Abstract

    The multichannel information (over)flow emerging in modern mobile multimedia devices creates a situation where the user's attention is a valuable asset for which different channels have to compete. This paper explores issues that help in effective use and maintenance of the user's attention level in such environment. We demonstrate with examples how the user's attention level can maintain high at different stages of task switching and execution.
