  IDM&IHM @ IHM 2006
Model-Driven Engineering & Human-Computer Interaction
Workshop at IHM 2006, French-Speaking Conference on Human-Computer Interaction
April 18, 2006, Montreal, Canada

(Papers in English are welcome but the discussions will be carried out in French) 

The HCI research community has been interested since it's early days in modeling the human-computer interaction according to various perspectives: user, task, dialogue, software architecture... A number of models have been proposed, albeit without a clear consensus in terms of metamodels. Frequently, the only precise definition of the meta-model has too be uncovered by analysing the tools that support a given model. How can one ensure that published models are complete or consistent, then ? How can we compare two approaches aiming at modeling HCI according to the same perspective ? How to unify the various perspectives under scrutiny ? 

The last years have seen significant advances from the Software Engineering community, both conceptual and technological, in the field of Model Driven Engineering (MDE). Now, the meta-modeling activity is well understood and supported by convenient software tools, such as languages dedicated to meta-modeling, or model weaving and transformation. MDE provides a theoretical and technical foundation strong enough to bring some order in the galaxy of meta-models produced by the HCI community. Moreover, MDE promises some significant potential advantages by allowing to manipulate these models as first-class entities.

The goal of this workshop is to federate the HCI research that are carried out in a MDE perspective. We wish to establish the state of the art in this emerging domain, to classify the various approaches, and to make the relevant concepts more precise. The workshop could define a research agenda for MDE&HCI (MDE&HCI) and trigger new research collaborations.

    Participation is based on the submission of position papers (2 pages max.) expressing the authors' view on the MDE&HCI topic, providing experience reports or describing ongoing work. Papers will be evaluated by the organizing committee based on their relevance to the topic.

Contributions will be presented during the workshop, but most of the day will be devoted to discussion in small groups.

Please see for details on the submission process. 

Submissions are accepted until march 24, 2006. Authors will be notified on march 31.
