**   ADVANCE PROGRAMME AND REGISTRATION FORM    **

INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON
REPRESENTATIONS IN INTERACTIVE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

2-4 July 1997

Department of Computer Science
Queen Mary and Westfield College
University of London

http://www.dcs.qmw.ac.uk/research/hci


THEME

Various representations serve diverse purposes throughout interactive
software development.  Representations may be used to support processes
such as analysis of users' work and environment, envisioning and
implementing new work situations and technology and evaluation of
usability, work performance and quality.

In playing a part in such processes, a representation may provide, for
example, an embodiment or model of the object of a particular development
activity.  It may provide an historical record of the development process.
It may serve as a channel of communication within or between groups of
stakeholders in the development process.

Representations may take many different forms.  Dimensions along which
types of representations may be considered include formal to informal,
general to concrete, exclusive to participative, tool-based to ad hoc,
graphical to propositional.

Questions of interest include: which processes and activities within
software development may benefit from or require particular
representations?  Which form of representation is most appropriate to meet
which needs?  What benefits has one form of representation over another, in
what circumstances?  Which properties of representations support particular
processes, roles and activities?  Who needs to be able to understand and
work with a given representation?  What tools and environment must be
provided to support construction and use of a particular representation?

The workshop provides a forum for practitioners and researchers to present
their own work and ideas on representations and their uses within software
development and to discuss the above and related issues.
