Computer-Aided Design of User Interfaces VI gathers the latest experience of experts, research teams and leading organisations involved in computer-aided design of user interactive applications. This area investigates how it is desirable and possible to support, to facilitate and to speed up the development life cycle of any interactive system: requirements engineering, early-stage design, detailed design, deelopment, deployment, evaluation, and maintenance. In particular, it stresses how the design activity could be better understood for different types of advanced interactive ubiquitous computing, and multi-device environments.

Advances in electronics, communications, and the fast growth of the Internet have made the use of a wide variety of computing devices an every day occurrence. These computing devices have different interaction styles, input/output techniques, modalities, characteristics, and contexts of use. Furthermore, users expect to access their data and run the same application from any of these devices. Two of the problems we encountered in our own work [2] in building VIs for different platforms were the different layout features and screen sizes associated with each platform and device. Dan Ol sen [13], Peter Johnson [9], and Stephen Brewster, et al. [4] all talk about problems in interaction due to the diversity of interactive platforms, devices, network services and applications. They also talk about the problems associ ated with the small screen size of hand-held devices. In comparison to desk top computers, hand-held devices will always suffer from a lack of screen real estate, so new metaphors of interaction have to be devised for such de vices. It is difficult to develop a multi-platform user interface (VI) without duplicating development effort. Developers now face the daunting task to build UIs that must work across multiple devices. There have been some ap proaches towards solving this problem of multi-platform VI development in cluding XWeb [14]. Building "plastic interfaces" [5,20] is one such method in which the VIs are designed to "withstand variations of context of use while preserving usability".

This book comprises a variety of breakthroughs and recent advances on Human– Computer Interaction (HCI) intended for both researchers and practitioners. Topics addressed here can be of interest for those people searching for last trends involving such a growing discipline. Important issues concerning this book includes cutti- edge topics such as Semantic Web Interfaces, Natural Language Processing and - bile Interaction, as well as new methodological trends such as Interface-Engineering techniques, User-Centred Design, Usability, Accessibility, Development Meth- ologiesandEmotionalUserInterfaces. Theideabehindthisbookistobringtogether relevant and novel research on diverse interaction paradigms. New trends are gu- anteedaccordingtothedemandingclaimsofbothHCIresearchersandpractitioners, which encourage the explicit arrangement of new industrial and technological topics such as the previously cited Interfaces for the Semantic Web, and Mobile Interfaces, but also Multimodal Interaction, Collaborative Interfaces, End-User Development, Usability and User Interface Engineering. Chapters included in this book comprise a selection of top high-quality papers from Interaccion ́ 2007, which is the most important HCI conference sponsored by AIPO (the Spanish HCI Association). Papers were selected from a ranking - tained through double-blind peer review and later meta-review processes, cons- ering the best evaluated paper from both the review and presentation session. Such a paper selection constitutes only 33% of the papers published in the conference proceedings. We would like to thank the reviewers for their effort in revising the chapters included in this publication, namely Silvia T. Acuna, ̃ Sandra Baldasarri, Crescencio Bravo, Cesar A.

th TAMODIA 2009 was the 8 International Workshop in the series looking at TAskMOdelsandDIAgramsforUserInterfaceDevelopment. Overtheyearsthe submissionshavelookedatavarietyofperspectivesformodeling andannotating the user interface development process. The eighth workshop continued that approachandwascombinedwiththeIFIPWorkingConferenceonHumanError, Safety and Systems Development, HESSD 2009. There is an obvious synergy betweenthetwo workshops,asa rigorous,engineeringapproachto userinterface development can help in the prevention of human error and the maintenance of safety in critical interactive systems. The 12 papers presented here take a variety of approaches and cover d- ferent domains of the application of task modeling. We begin with higher-level perspectives on business processes that enable us to drive user interface dev- opment. Aspects of the general design process are also considered and applied to service-oriented and augmented reality interaction. Formal methods are also investigated for more rigorous development. Model-driven development is also recognized for its contribution to high-level interface design, and continuing the software engineering theme, approaches based on UML are presented. Sousa et al. propose a model-driven approach to linking business processes with user interface models. Their approach is demonstrated in the context of a large ?nancial institution and they show how the alignment between UI models and business can be managed, taking advantage of the traceability provided by model-driven design. Neubauer et al. also consider a ?ow-oriented modeling of business processes as a more open approach to capturing the dynamics of process modeling and understanding.
