DSV-IS 2000: 7th International Workshop on
Design, Specification and Verification of Interactive Systems
Limerick, Ireland, June 5-6, 2000.
ICSE Workshop in co-operation with EUROGRAPHICS
Models in Design of Interactive Systems and Usability Evaluation
DSV-IS (Design, Specification and Verification of Interactive Systems)
is an international Workshop that has been organised every year since
1994. The 7th DSV-IS workshop is organized in co-operation with Eurographics,
as in previous years, and is linked with ICSE in order to facilitate
greater participation from people working in the Software Engineering field.
The 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 (e.g. of devices,
users, tasks, contexts, architectures, etc. ) and their role in
supporting the design and development of interactive systems.
As in previous years, we maintain our interest in the use of formal
representations and their role in supporting the design, specification,
verification, validation and evaluation of interactive systems.
Contributions pertaining to less formal representations of interactive
system designs and model-based design approaches are also encouraged.
The workshop aims to encourage an exchange of ideas between these
different research fields. In the workshop, we aim to review the state
of art in the field, to give a framework to evaluate current approaches,
and to identify promising research lines and the possible results which
can be foreseen in the next years.
Topics of interest are:
-- Model-based design of interactive systems
-- Task-based design of interactive systems
-- Formal description of user related properties
-- Cognitive models in interactive systems design
-- User interface architectures
-- User interface development environments
-- The role of representations (formal/informal) in the design of
-- interactive systems
-- Models of context of use
-- Specification-based evaluation of usability
-- Formal specification techniques for interactive systems
-- Models for Novel Interaction Techniques
-- Design of Interactive-Safety Critical Applications
-- Novel Techniques for Interacting with Formal Models
-- Usability Evaluation of Notations
-- UML and HCI
-- Software Architectures for User Interfaces
