3rd International Workshop on
TAsk MOdels and DIAgrams for user interface design - TAMODIA’2004

Prague, Czech Republic • November 15-16, 2004


The Third Worksop on TAsk MOdels and DIAgrams for user interface design will
be organised and hosted by the Dept. of Computer Science Czech of the
Technical University in Prague.

To design user interfaces for inter-active computer-based systems, many
Forms of expression have been used and some new forms are currently being
investigated by combining writing, drawing, sketching, gesture, and 
multimedia interacting capabilities. It is considered fundamental to capture
the essence of the users’ tasks to better inform the user interface design
process. Many activities in the development life cycle are concerned by the
quality of this capture.
This workshop is aimed at examining how multiple forms of task
expressions can significantly increase or decrease the quality of user
interface design as a process.

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
- Cognitive task models
- Derivation of UI from task: systematic processes and methods
- Diagrams for task representation: textual, graphic, animation, video
- Early requirements for task-based design
- Predictive task models
- Properties of tasks
- Simulation of tasks
- Sketching and gesture-based tools for UI design
- Software engineering models and techniques applied for task-based design:
data-flow diagrams, dynamics diagrams, Petri nets, semantic nets,
statecharts, static diagrams, state transition diagrams, UML models, etc.
- Task analysis
- Task-based design
- Task models: analytic and empirical modelling
- User affordance
- User interfaces for very complex or exceptional tasks
- User-task elicitation
- Visual programming
- Visualization of models involved in UI design process

Papers written in English are solicited for presentations as talks in
long format.
Papers (limited to 15 pages) should highlight both the general scientific
contributions of the research and their practical significance. The
conference will consist in an oral presentation of long papers, along with
Authors should follow the formatting instructions at:
Fundamental aspects of task-based design are particularly welcome.

Deadline for paper submissions: 15 July
Notification of paper acceptance: 15 September
Deadline for final versions: 15 October
