Design, Specification and Verification of Interactive Systems: DSV-IS 2006
XIII International Workshop

July 26-28, 2006, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.

In Co-operation with ACM SIGCHI, Eurographics, the BCS HCI group and 
IFIP WG 13.5

DETAILS: - Registration now open. Early 
registration closes 26th June.

Interactive systems, the human computer interface and support for 
collaboration, have always presented significant challenges for 
designers and developers. Developments in ubiquitous and mobile 
computing have brought further challenges to interface design. DSV-IS 
provides a forum where researchers working on model based techniques and 
tools for the design and development of interactive systems can come 
together with practitioners and with those working on HCI models and 

The XIIIth International Workshop on the Design, Verification and 
Specification of Interactive Systems provides a venue for researchers 
and practitioners to present their latest results and developments. 
Papers will be presented and discussed on Safety Critical Systems, Model 
Based Development, Cognitive Aspects of Interaction, Haptics and 
Multimodality, Prototyping and Evaluation and Supporting User Interface 

Keynote talks:

"Construction by Configuration: Challenges for Software Engineering 
Ian Sommerville - author of several books, including the well known 
software engineering textbook, is professor of software engineering in 
the School of Computer Science at St Andrews University, Scotland, 
having previously been a Professor at the University of Lancaster. His 
research interests are in socio-technical systems, dependability, 
requirements engineering and service-centric computing.

"How do developers meet users? - Attitudes and processes in software 
Jan Gulliksen is a professor in Human Computer Interaction at Uppsala 
university. He conducts research on usability and user-centred systems 
design in practice, in cooperation with a number of companies and public 
authorities. Jan has authored a number of papers on the integration of 
HCI and software engineering and is also an editor of the book 
Human-centred software engineering, published last year. Jan is the 
chairman of IFIP 13.2 - Methodologies for user-centred systems design 
and is also an active participant in ISO standardization efforts on 
software ergonomics and Human-Computer dialogues.
