In cooperation with the Eurographics Association, and the IEEE Portuguese
Section (other agreements pending)

Thematic focus
DSV-IS is the annual meeting of the human-computer interaction community
interested in all aspects of Design, Specification, and Verification of
Interactive Systems. It serves as the principal international forum for
reporting outstanding research, development, and industrial experience in
this area.
The 10th DSV-IS workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on
diverse approaches to the design and implementation of interactive systems.
The particular focus of this year's event is on models and their role in
supporting the design and development of the next generation of user
Today, we are no longer confined to developing user-interfaces for single
users interacting with standard desktop applications. Instead, a new wave of
computing technologies (wireless communications, ubiquitous computing,
information appliances, etc.) enables and motivates a different understanding
of interactive system development. Moreover, users and customers are radically
changing from technology-savvy early adopters, into convenience-oriented
consumers that seek reliability, low-cost and emotionally pleasing user
experiences. This poses new challenges for designing the next generation of

- Understanding and capturing the requirements of the new consumer and user
  community, focusing on marketing and business requirements and striving for
  convenience, reliability, low-cost and positive affect;
- Devising new modeling formalisms, methods and tools that foster communication
  and accessibility to a widespread design community, in particular people with
  backgrounds on marketing, business, information architecture, content
  production, artistic and industrial design.
- Developing interactive systems for a broader diversity of computing devices,
  involving different interaction styles and techniques, distinct input and
  output devices, and diverse operating contexts (mobile, ubiquitous,
  pervasive, etc.).

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

- Affective, emotional and game based UIs
- Multi-modal interaction
- Agent-based UIs
- Component-based UI development
- Development support tools and techniques
- Domain specific model-based approaches
- Formal description of user related properties
- Formal methods in interactive systems development
- Front-end interfaces to multimedia, hypermedia, knowledge-based, personalized
  information and simulation systems
- Methods, metrics and tools for computer-aided evaluation of UI
- Mobile and ubiquitous interaction
- Model-based and task-based approaches to UI design
- Model-based Interface Development Environments (MB-IDE)
- Models for Novel Interaction Techniques
- Models of context of use, specific properties of mobile and ubiquitous usage
- Models for context- and situation-aware interactive assistance
- Novel Techniques for Interacting with Formal Models
- Patterns in HCI: cross-platform, design, globalization, mobility, and
- Pattern languages
- User interface architectures
- UI management systems (UIMS)
- UI for virtual/augmented/mixed reality
- UML and HCI

Papers written in English are solicited for presentations as talks both in long
and short formats. Long submissions are limited to 15 pages in length, with the
main body set in a 12-point font. Short position papers can have up to four
pages in length. Final papers should contain title, authors' names and
affiliations, abstract, keywords, text, illustrations and references.  They
should highlight both the general scientific contribution of the research and
its practical significance.  The conference will consist of an oral
presentation of the papers, along with discussion. Authors should follow the
formatting instructions at:

Papers will be double-blindly refereed. Selection will be based upon technical
and scientific content and relevance to the workshop. For this purpose, submit
an anonymous version where all names, contact information, references, names of
personal projects and any hints indicating the authors are removed. The Program
Committee may not accept a submission containing such hints.

Complete proceedings will include all papers accepted for the
workshop. Selected revised long papers will be included in the final
proceedings, to be published by Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer
Science series <>.

Important Dates
    All Submissions:  March 2, 2003
Review notification: April 11, 2003
  Final submissions:   May 18, 2003

Complete instructions for electronic submissions via are
available at the conference's web site. Please submit papers online as an
anonymous version which does not contain any references to authors. Use PDF
format for all submissions. Please contact the program chair if you have
trouble generating PDF.
