                   Fifth International Workshop on 

         Model Driven Development of Advanced User Interfaces

           - Bridging between User Experience and UI Engineering -



                 In conjunction with CHI 2010

                    Atlanta, Georgia, USA 

                   Saturday, April 10th 2010





In the history of software development, the abstraction level on which
software is described has been increasing all the time.

The latest trend is to specify software using (platform-independent) models,
which are then gradually and (semi-) automatically transformed into
executable applications for different platforms and target devices.

The goal of this workshop is to discuss the use of (semi-) formal models in
user interface development.

What is the right way of creative design and interaction design working with
user interface models? Can models help in coping with innovative interaction


The workshop will be a platform for discussing the modelling of advanced
user interfaces, such as interfaces supporting complex interactions,
visualizations, multimedia representations, multimodality, adaptability or

It will contribute to a better integration of knowledge from the
Human-Computer Interaction community and the Software Engineering community.

We are striving for development methods which support the model-driven
development of user interfaces with great user experience and optimal

Which kinds of models are required to achieve this goal? How can different
kinds of models be flexibly combined? How can individual and informal design
skills be integrated into the process?

Can (and shall) we integrate the tools designers are accustomed to use
nowadays? Is it possible to do user-centred design based on models?




We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not
limited to:


* Tools supporting model-driven development of advanced user interfaces

* Models related to one or more HCI aspects that relate to the user
experience of the modeled application

* Project experience on user interface development using a model-driven
development approach

* The combination of models and informal design knowledge in a model-driven
development process

* A well-reasoned proposal  for a (partial) answer to one of the questions
in the theme description




The workshop takes one full day (Saturday, April 10th 2010) during the CHI
2010 conference. The workshop will consist of short presentations by all
workshop participants followed by in-depth group discussions on selected

The results of this group work will be presented and discussed in a closing
plenary session.




Submissions with in-depth discussion of one topic are preferred above
submissions with a broader topic. Usage of an illustrative example is
encouraged. Both academic position papers and industrial experience papers
are solicited.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by members of the program committee.
