13-14 May 2010, Rome

Hosted by the CNR-ISTI HIIS Laboratory

Responses to Call for Participation

This page summarizes information on responses to the CfP, and where available, a link to their paper/statement of interest.

Grzegorz Lehmann, DAI-Labor, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany

I am a researcher at the DAI-Labor of the Technische Universität Berlin. I will submit the statement of interest and am of course interested in giving a presentation about it

José Manuel Cantera Fonseca, Telefónica I+D, Spain

As a founder, active participant and Editor of the MBUI-XGR Telefónica fully supports further standardization actions in the area of Model-Based User Interfaces. Telefonica fully endorses the position stated on the MBUI-XGR, particulary section 6, on which ideas for new, short-term standardization actions are described.

As an editor of the MBUI-XGR Telefónica is asking the MBUI workshop Chairs to be in charge of giving a presentation summarizing the main conclusions and work made by the MBUI-XG during the last year and a half.

Note: may bring a colleague

Steven Pemberton, CWI, Holland

I intend to submit, on experiences with and lessons of XForms, and would like to make a presentation and would be happy to appear on a panel.

Pablo Cesar, CWI, Holland

My interest is in Multimedia content and the Web of Things [requirements and opportunities for Model-based UIs]. I am willing to make a presentation, and to serve on a panel related to multimedia, synchronization, Web of Things

Giorgio Brajnik, Università di Udine, Italy

My interest is in using UML to model the dynamics of the UI of web applications, within a MDD approach, in order to be able to catch as early as possible, usability and accessibility problems.

I plan to come alone, I'd be very interested in giving a presentation (on specific case studies I'm working on), and I'm happy to serve on a panel.

Claudio Venezia, Telecom Italia, Italy
Gerrit Meixner, German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), Kaiserslautern, Germany
Jan Alexandersson, AAL Competence Center (DFKI), Saarbrücken, Germany
Jaroslav Pullmann, Fraunhofer FIT, Germany

My interest in the workshop arises from the activities of our research group in the area ofweb compliance, accessibility and supportive e-services. I'd like to discuss, how the existing web standards (concerning the XML and RDF/ OLW-based stacks) and novel technologies (XRX, Comet) along with their open source implementations already fit the layered picture of model based application and user interface development and to see how real-world requirements could inspire further harmonization and extensions. Some questions that might be considered:

  • what are the commonly accepted requirements in MBUI design?
  • how are these covered by technologies like XForms, ARIA, XUL, SCXML, XProc etc.?
  • how to leverage a data/content-centric programming paradigm to support maintainability, composition and extensibility at every layer (see e.g. IBM's Collage )?

I am willing to give a presentation and serve on a panel.

Patrick Girard, ISI, ENSMA, Poitiers, France

There are three authors, but I (Patrick) am the only who can attend the workshop.

Ignacio Marín, Fundación CTIC, Spain
Javier Rodríguez, Fundación CTIC, Spain

Fundación CTIC has been participating in research activities (projects and publications around the MyMobileWeb project and the self-created DIMAG Framework -see in plus another contribution to journal currently in revision) in which the need for model-based generation of applications has been identified.

Besides, we are about to participate in the Serenoa project, recently approved by the European Commision as a STREP project. Some of the participants in this project are part of the Program Committee, for more details.

Katsuhiko Kageyama, Hitachi, Japan
Kazuyuki Ashimura, W3C Japan

I am happy to give some talk. (Kazuyuki). We might want to hold a breakout session if there are specific topics which need/fit that.

Hiroyuki Sato, NTT Information Sharing Platform Laboratories, NTT Corporation, Japan
Toru Kobayashi, NTT Information Sharing Platform Laboratories, NTT Corporation, Japan

Interested in automatic UI migration and relation of cloud computing to model-based approaches.

Javier Muñoz, prodevelop, Spain

We develop the free/libre CASE tool MOSKitt which includes a user interface modeling tool that is based in a language defined in the project by the ProS Research Center of the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia.

Jean-Loup Comeliau, W4-Lyria, France

We would like to make a presentation of LEONARDI, our flagship product, a model based framework for automating GUIs. Could be a PPT presentation, a demo or both, depending on how much time we have.

Daniel Schwabe, PUCC-Rio, Brazil

I can give a presentation and a demo, and am willing to serve on a panel. If possible, we should try to avoid the "mini-conference" format. I would favor a "real" *work*shop, with ample time for discussions, and hands-on experience.

Michael Nebeling, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
Florian Probst, SAP Research, Germany

Heiko Paulheim writes: My colleague Florian Probst would like to take part on behalf of our research group. Please find attached our position paper.

Kangchan Lee, ETRI, Daejeon, South Korea
Juan Manuel González Calleros, Belgian Lab of Human Computer Interaction (BCHI) of the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Belgium
Jean Vanderdonckt, Belgian Lab of Human Computer Interaction (BCHI) of the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Belgium

We want to present the latest results we have on UsiXML.

Pavel Kolčárek, Honeywell, Czech republic

I work for Honeywell Advanced Technology in aerospace domain and we recently started several research projects where one of the options might be a use of model-based interfaces. The product of these projects is typically set of prototypes of new avionic displays, based on some input function and interface requirements. Interested in whether the aerospace domain (with its complex rules and standard restrictions) can benefit from the MBUI approach.

Juan Carlos Molina, CARE Technologies, Spain
Yogesh Deshpande, University of Western Sydney, Australia

I'd be happy to make a short presentation about my concerns, experience and interests as related to the Workshop theme. I'm prepared to join a panel provided I feel that I can contribute to the topic under discussion. I'd also suggest two additional agenda items: i) validation and verification strategies; ii) teaching and training implications.

Bill Clare, USA

I am a retired (IBM, Lockheed Martin) software architect with a continuing interest in simplifying approaches to application development. I have been pursuing an approach to a primarily declarative language for specifying user interfaces to the Web, as well as to documents and other services. (Will not attend workshop)

Fabio Paternò, ISTI, CNR, Italy

As co-chair and the Workshop host, will probably bring along a couple of colleagues. Two position papers:

Dave Raggett, W3C Europe, UK

Co-chair. May want to talk about models for dynamic adaptation to the context, and separately about experience with ARIA and XUL.
