************ CALL FOR PAPERS ************

TAMODIA'2006 -  5th International Workshop on TAsk MOdels and DIAgrams
                       for user interface design
                 Hasselt, Belgium, October 23-24, 2006
                  http://edm.uhasselt.be/tamodia2006/


SCOPE:
The main theme of the 2006 edition of the TAMODIA workshop is  
"Taming HCI design and development complexity with tasks, models and  
diagrams".

TAMODIA'2006 is the fifth in a series of workshops focused on different
forms of models, diagrammatic and formal notations, and analytic
frameworks used to understand human tasks and activities with computers
and technology. The 2006 edition of the TAMODIA workshop adheres the
main theme "Taming HCI design and development complexity with tasks,
models and diagrams".

The growing complexity of modern software systems and the requirements
for their accompanying user interfaces demands that design and
development methodologies ensure support of the envisioned goals. In all
stages of the software engineering life cycle, even during software
usage and evolution, we need models and notations to express the tasks
and goals the user interface supports. Expressing the human-computer
interaction aspect of a software system during these stages is still a
true challenge. This is especially the case for non-traditional and
future user interfaces.

We seek high-quality, original papers that address the theory, design,
development, evaluation of ideas, tools, techniques, methodologies in
(but not limited to) the following areas:

      * Allocation of tasks
      * Processes and methodologies involving task modeling
      * Diagrams for task representation
      * Early requirements, elicitation and elaboration for task-based
        design
      * Predictive task models
      * Properties of tasks and task models
      * Simulation of tasks
      * Derivation of UI from tasks
      * Sketching and gesture-based tools for UI design
      * Software engineering models for interactive systems (data-flow
        diagrams, dynamics diagrams, Petri-nets, semantic nets,
        statecharts, static diagrams, state transition diagrams, UML
        models, etc.)
      * Task analysis
      * Task models in user-centered software design
      * Task-based design
      * Task models: analytic and empirical modeling
      * User interfaces for complex or exceptional tasks
      * Domain-specific task modeling approaches: medical software,
        e-gov, entertainment, crisis management,...
      * User-task elicitation
      * Task modeling for legacy systems
      * Visual HCI Engineering
      * Visualization of models involved in UI design process
      * Verification and validation of task models
      * Model-Driven Engineering for User Interfaces
      * Transformations of (task) models at design time and/or run time
        (forward, reverse, task to task,... transformations)
      * Active task models
      * Formal foundations for tasks
      * Diagrammatic notations for task specification
      * Task specification in HCI engineering
      * Advanced UI design and development with tasks and models:
        multi-modal interfaces, ambient intelligent interfaces,
        distributed and migratory user interfaces, augmented reality
        interfaces, tangible interfaces, virtual reality,...
      * Modeling interface navigation

results, reports of work in progress and also overviews of laboratories
or groups with significant work within the scope of the workshop.

Papers submission deadline: May 26, 2006 (deadline extended)
Notification to authors: June 28, 2006 (deadline extended)
Final versions due: July 3, 2006
Workshop: October 23-24, 2006
