PEICS 2010



                              First International Workshop on


               Pattern-Driven Engineering of Interactive Computer Systems





                                       Organized at


      2nd ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems
(EICS 2010)


                                      Berlin, Germany


                                 Sunday, June 20th, 2010







Since almost over one decade, patterns have been gaining a lot of interest
in the domain of Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI) engineering.


It is generally agreed upon that patterns can be used to facilitate the
exchange of best practices and knowledge between the interdisciplinary team
members, involved in interactive systems design process.


Despite intense research activities in the last years, HCI patterns still
lack in a standardized description and organization. This makes it difficult
for the developers to identify the relevant patterns for solving a problem
as well as to apply them accordingly to the problem context.


To fully benefit from HCI patterns within the engineering of interactive
computer systems they have to be prepared for integration into a model-based
user interface development process. Instead of guiding and advising the UI
developers of which solution should be applied, HCI patterns should enable
the easy reuse of already designed model or code fragments.


To enable the integration of HCI patterns in the model-based development
process the informal textual, or graphical notation of HCI patterns has to
be overcome.


HCI patterns have to support the formal description of their solution-part,
which allows the direct integration of the solution-parts into the different
models, like task-, dialog and presentation-model.








We solicit papers addressing one or more of these issues:


 * Development of HCI patterns


 * Languages for the definition of HCI patterns


 * Pattern representation: UML, XML, USiXML, mathematical formalization etc.


 * Tools supporting the development of HCI patterns


 * Pattern-oriented design and engineering


 * The combination of models and HCI patterns in a model-driven development


 * Patterns in practices (project experience): Web services, mobile
applications, etc.








The workshop takes one full day during the EICS 2010 conference.


The workshop will consist of short presentations by all workshop
participants followed by in-depth group discussions on selected topics.


The results of this group work will be presented and discussed in a closing
plenary session.








Papers must not exceed 4 pages in SIGCHI Conference Proceedings Format and
address one or more of the above topics.


Submissions with in-depth discussion of one topic are preferred above
submissions with a broader topic. Usage of an illustrative example is
encouraged. Both academic position papers and industrial experience papers
are solicited.


All submitted papers will be reviewed by members of the program
committee.Papers will be evaluated according to their significance,
originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the


Microsoft Word document and Latex class file templates are available at:
