Multimodality in mobile computing has become a very active field of research in the past few years. Soon, mobile devices will allow smooth and smart interaction with everyday life’s objects, thanks to natural and multimodal interactions. In this context, this chapter introduces some concepts needed to address the topic of pervasive and ubiquitous computing. The multi-modal, multi-channel and multidevice notions are presented and are referenced by the name and partial acroynm “multi-DMC”. A multi-DMC referential is explained, in order to understand what kind of notions have to be sustained in such systems. Next we have three case studies that illustrate the issues faced when proposing systems able to support at the same time different modalities including voice or gesture, different devices, like PC or smartphone and different channels such as web or telephone.
