      Call for Papers

      Building interactive systems that are efficient and reliable in use, easy to
      learn and remember, and that provide user satisfaction is one of the
      greatest challenges of the software industry. Such requirements are
      increasing with the widespread use of the Internet, the advent of the
      information appliances and agent-based systems. The Unified Modeling
      Language (UML) has found widespread use in many different application
      domains and is increasingly becoming the de facto standard language for
      object-oriented analysis and design. However, UML support for interactive
      system development is recognized to be insufficient.

      Several recent workshops held at major human-computer interaction (CHI¹97
      and 98) and object-oriented conferences (INTERACT¹99) discussed the role of
      object modeling in interactive system development. The results point out
      that the object modeling can play an important role leveraging interactive
      system development. In particular, the UML, and its built in extensibility
      mechanisms, was found to be adequate to accommodate some of human-computer
      interaction (HCI) domain knowledge.

      The TUPIS workshops seeks to go one step further and specifically discuss
      the potential and limitations of the UML to integrate HCI knowledge, thereby
      devising a set of notational extensions that could effectively be used in a
      real world scenario to improve interactive system development.

      Participation in the Workshop is by invitation only upon acceptance of
      position papers, reviewed by an international program committee. In order to
      foster interactivity, participants are encouraged to read the position
      papers prior to the workshop. The workshop will start with an overview, from
      one of the organizers, of the different ideas and proposals presented in the
      contributions. From then on participants will split into groups and discuss
      the potential of the UML to express a particular concept, or set of
      interrelated HCI concepts. In the end a summary of the results will be
      disseminated to both the HCI and software engineering communities.

      Potential participants should send position papers articulating their
      interests, ideas, and experiences in interactive system development and
      object models. Position papers must be electronically submitted with name
      and contact information to the organizing committee (tupis2000@...).
      Papers must be in English, and not longer than 6 pages in html format
      (template available for download in the Workshop site).

      Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:
      * Ways of using the UML for interactive system development;
      * UML extensions to support interactive system development;
      * UML based models and artifacts to support interactive system
      * UML notations for descriptions of work and business processes, user
      behavior, user profiling, task models, conceptual (user) models,
      abstract and detailed user interface models;
      * Ways of using the UML to express interactive system architectures;
      * Ways of using the UML to express task and presentation patterns;
      * Tool support issues regarding the above topics
      * Problems, issues and case studies regarding the above topics;

      Potential participants are encouraged to read position papers and final
      reports from three related Workshops held in CHI¹97, CHI¹98 and ECOOP¹99

      Participants are also expected to read the position papers of other
      participants prior to the workshop. Participants will be asked to assist in
      the preparation of the workshop report after the workshop, and may be
      invited to participate in further publication resulting from workshop

      According to the UML'2000 registration policy all attendees at the workshop
      will have to pay the workshop registration fee. A discounted fee will be
      offered for those also attending the <<UML>> 2000 conference. For more
      informations regarding the UML'2000 Conference and workshop registration
