                          Call for Papers
                             FMIS 2006


                  Macau SAR China, 31 October 2006



                           IMPORTANT DATES

                 Submission deadline: 23 July, 2006

             Acceptance notification: 10 September, 2006

      Final version for the pre-proceedings due: 12 October, 2006

     Final version for the ENTCS proceedings due: 1 December, 2006



      Reducing the likelihood of human error in the use of interactive
      systems is increasingly important: the use of such systems is
      becoming widespread in applications that demand high reliability
      due to safety, security, financial or similar considerations.
      Consequently, the use of formal methods in verifying the
      correctness of interactive systems should also include analysis
      of human behaviour in interacting with the interface.
      The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers in
      computer science and cognitive psychology, from both academia
      and industry, who are interested in developing formal and
      semi-formal methodologies and tools for the evaluation and
      verification of interactive systems. The outcome is to establish
      a worldwide network of researchers interested in applying formal
      methods to HCI.
      The workshop will focus on, though will not be restricted to,

        * general design and verification methodologies
          based on cognitive psychology

      as well as application areas such as

        * mobile devices;
        * embedded systems;
        * safety-critical systems;
        * high-reliability systems;
        * shared control systems;
        * digital libraries;
        * eGovernment;
        * pervasive systems;
        * augmented reality.

      The one-day workshop will feature a one hour presentation by a
      keynote speaker together with contributed papers that will
      undergo a peer-review process. Contributed papers may be
      accepted either for full presentation or short presentation.


      Papers accepted as full paper presentations will be published by
      Elsevier in the series Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer
      Science (ENTCS). Papers accepted as short paper presentations
      will be published in the participants' proceedings at the
      workshop only. Detailed information on the submission procedure
      is available below.
      Publication of a selection of the papers in a journal special
      issue is also under consideration.


        * Harold Thimbleby, University of Wales Swansea, UK


      IFMIS 2006 will be organised jointly between the International
      Institute for Software Technology of the United Nations
      University (UNU-IIST) and the EPSRC Human Error Modelling (HUM)
      Project of the University of London (QMUL and UCL).
      UNU-IIST and EPSRC-HUM are also sponsors of ICTAC 2006.


      Submissions to the workshop must not have been published or be
      concurrently considered for publication elsewhere.
      All submissions will be peer-reviewed and judged on the basis
      of originality, contribution to the field, technical and
      presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop.
      Papers should be written in English and not exceed 16 pages
      in ENTCS format.
      Authors should utilize the ENTCS macro files that have been
      specially prepared for use with ENTCS. The generic ENTCS package,
      which contains files common for all volumes in ENTCS and
      includes several examples, as well as instructions, can be
      downloaded from
      The entcsmacro.sty file in the ENTCS package should be be
      replaced by the prentcsmacro.sty file, which is specific to
      FMIS 2006 and can be downloaded from
      File prentcsmacro.sty has to be renamed entcsmacro.sty.
      File example.tex has to be used as a template for the paper,
      making sure that key words are included in the frontmatter
      section where indicated.
      Authors also should not use any formatting commands that alter
      the ENTCS style definitions. This includes the format of
      Definitions, Lemmas, Theorems, etc., as well as the spacing
      that is defined by the ENTCS Macros.
      Authors must submit their papers in pdf format to the website
      no later than Sunday 23 July 2006.
      All queries should be sent to: fmis2006 AT
