Poll on 2nd face to face

UCL had difficulties dialling in. Dave was sick and couldn't call in.

Gerrit is ill, he asked Fabio to chair the conf-call.

Review of the Use Cases. We have to add a few lines about the role of the MBUI languages in the description of the use cases, which is already in the Wiki (see actions section).

Task forces. We have to set up two task forces for creating a working draft, one for task models and another one for Abstract User Interfaces. Since the first version is expected by March the 30th, we cannot perform an extensively review and evaluation of all existing languages. Therefore, it is better to focus on the languages that have been submitted to the MBUI group. We will consider the following languages:


  • CTT
  • UseML
  • UsiXML


  • UsiXML
  • AIM
  • UseDM

Since we will focus on the abstract level, which is platform-agnostic, rather than on the concrete level, at the moment MIM is out of scope

Working draft. We will create a document that includes a metamodel proposal together with text explanation. It is better to create a small group of 2-3 persons as the main editors that collect reviews and comments from the participants. Fabio will lead the Task group, while Jean the AUI one. For the communication it is possible to use the public mailing list, or directly contact persons involved.

Next F2F meeting. As Gerrit pointed out EICS workshops and conference in Copenhagen cover almost the entire week so we cannot have the meeting there. Since various participants to the MBUI-WG are involved in Serenoa we agreed to have the next face-to-face meeting in Pisa the 11th of June, afterwards there will be a Serenoa meeting. In this way we can facilitate the participation of the Serenoa industrial partners (Telefonica, SAP, …)

AOB. We do not need to include a long motivation section in the working drafts, because we already motivated the approach in the Incubator group document. We should focus on the languages description.


  • Add the role of MBUI languages in the description of the use-cases (2-3) lines. The deadline is April the 15th
