CALL FOR PARTICIPATION:
5th International Eurographics Workshop on Design, Specification and Verification of Interactive
Modelling and Design
Cosener's House, Abingdon, U.K., June 3-5, 1998
The workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on diverse approaches
to the design of interactive systems. The particular focus of this yearŐs event is on
models (e.g. of devices, users, tasks, etc. ) and their role in supporting the design and
development of interactive systems. As in previous years we maintain our interest in
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.
Model-based design of interactive systems
Task-based design of interactive systems
Formal description of user related properties
Formalisms for the specification of interactive systems
User interface architectures
User interface development environments
Validation of formally specified properties of interactive systems
The role of representations (formal/informal) in the design of interactive systems
Specification-based evaluation of usability
Cognitive models in interactive systems design
Empirical assessment of formal design, specification and verification approaches
Full papers addressing in-depth questions on the above topics (up to 15 pages).
Experience papers reporting on the practical application of such techniques or
industrial perspectives on the above topics (up to 5 pages).
Position papers. In a few cases participation will be possible if a position paper is
submitted with your views on the workshop topics (up to 2 pages).
Demonstrations of tools to support the design of interactive systems. A description of
the demonstration (up to 2 pages) should be accompanied by a video (up to 5
Video presentations of tools will be accepted as well. A description of the
demonstration (up to 2 pages) should be be submitted with the video (2 to 8 minutes).
