5th International Eurographics Workshop on Design, Specification and Verification of Interactive
Systems, DSV-ISŐ98

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.

*Suggested Topics*
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

*Submission Categories*
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).

*Format of submissions*

category, title, name and contact details of author(s),  keywords and a 100-word
Papers of all categories should follow the Springer Verlag format for Eurographics
publications (see
Video submissions should be in PAL/NTSC format.

Expression of interest by January 9, 1998.  Send an email with topic and author
details to the address below.
Submission of papers, videos and demonstrations by February 6, 1998.  Post 4 copies
of the paper and (where applicable) one copy of the videotape to the address below.
Notification of acceptance by April 10, 1998.

All accepted papers will be published in the workshop informal proceedings which
will be printed and distributed
prior to the workshop.  In addition. the review committee will select the most relevant
papers to be published in the
Focus on Computer Graphics Series published by Springer-Verlag, along with the
workshop reports.
