To design user interfaces for interactive computer-based systems, many forms of expression have been used and some new forms are currently being investigated by combining writing, drawing, sketching, gesture, and multimedia-interacting capabilities. It is considered fundamental to capture the essence of the users' tasks to better inform the user-interface design process. Many activities in the development lifecycle are concerned by the quality of this capture. This workshop is aimed at examining how multiple forms of task expressions can significantly increase or decrease the quality of user-interface design as a process.


• Allocation of tasks

• Cognitive task models

• Derivation of UI from task: systematic processes and methods

• Diagrams for task representation: textual, graphic, animation, video

• Early requirements for task-based design

• Predictive task models

• Properties of tasks

• Simulation of tasks

• Sketching and gesture-based tools for UI design

• Software engineering models and techniques applied for task-based design: data-flow diagrams, dynamics diagrams, Petri nets, semantic nets, statecharts, static diagrams, state-transition diagrams, UML models...

• Task analysis

• Task-based design

• Task models: analytic and empirical modeling

• User interfaces for very complex or exceptional tasks

• User affordance

• User-task elicitation

• Visual programming

• Visualization of models involved in UI design process

bullet.gif The Third Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS Washington, D.C. December 10-11, 2004

The objective of this workshop is to provide an open and constructive discussion forum of important HCI research in information systems that addresses the ways humans interact with information, technologies, and tasks—especially in the business, managerial, organizational, social and/or cultural contexts. HCI in MIS is concerned with the macro level (versus the micro level) of Human-Computer Interaction analysis. The purpose of the workshop is to identify important HCI/MIS problems and innovative research approaches.

This year's workshop will include a panel of editor-in-chiefs and senior editors from premier MIS journals, who will discuss the unique issues associated with publishing HCI research in these journals. The panelists include Izak Benbasat, Senior Editor, JAIS; Chris Kemerer, Editor-in-Chief, ISR; Ron Weber, Editor-in-Chief, MIS Quarterly; Vladimir Zwass, Editor-in-Chief, JMIS; Dennis Galletta, Moderator


• The perceptual, behavioral, cognitive, motivational, and affective/emotional aspects of human and their interaction with IT

• User task analysis and modeling

• Digital documents/ genres and human information seeking behavior

• Informed user interface design and evaluation for all types of business and organizational applications such as:

• B2B, B2C, C2C E-Commerce

• E-marketplace and supply chain management

• Group collaboration

• Negotiation and auction

• Enterprise systems

• Intranets

• Extranets

• Small-screen mobile devices and pervasive computing

• Multi-dimensional information visualizations

• Integrated or innovative approaches and guidelines for analysis, design, and development of interactive devices and systems

• Usability engineering, metrics, and methods for user interface assessment

• Evaluation of end-user computing in work or non-work environment

• Information technology acceptance and diffusion issues from cognitive, behavioral, affective, motivational, cultural, and user interface design perspectives

• The impact of interfaces/information technology on attitudes, behavior, performance, perception, and productivity

• Issues in software learning and training

• Gender and technology

• Issues related to the elderly, the young and special needs populations

• Other human factors issues related to human interaction with technologies

Delivering a Usable Experience with Rich Internet Applications Edinburgh, Scotland November 23, 2004

The Macromedia Flash Platform is no longer just for animation; developers can use the small footprint and high interactivity of the Flash player with enterprise software architectures to deliver a new breed of enhanced user experiences called "Rich Internet Applications," using technologies such as the recently launched Macromedia Flex. Steven Webster, technical director of iteration::two and author of three titles on rich Internet applications with Macromedia products, will demonstrate the business benefits and technological possibilities achievable with RIAs and consider how usability and accessibility fit with these richer user experiences.

CEC `05 IEEE Conference on E-Commerce Technology München, Germany July 19-22, 2005

IEEE Conference on E-Commerce Technology (CEC'05) is the 7th annual event (formerly WECWIS) and the primary forum for the exchange of information regarding advancements in the state of the art of theory and practice in E-Commerce and Web-based Information Systems, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future of E-Commerce technology, applications and service-oriented computing. The conference theme for 2005 is: "Service-Oriented E-Commerce"


The conference is soliciting research papers, short papers, and tutorial proposals. Submitted papers will be evaluated on significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. They should clearly establish the research contribution, its relevance to electronic commerce, and its relation to prior research.

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered in another forum. Manuscripts will be limited to eight (IEEE style) pages. (Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers.) At least one author is required to attend the conference and present the paper. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word formats) is required.

All papers selected for this conference are peer-reviewed and will be published in the regular conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press. The best papers presented in the conference will be selected for journals such as the Journal on Information Systems and E-Business (ISeB), or the Electronic Commerce Research Journal (ECRJ).


Submissions deadline:
January 20, 2005

Notification of authors:
March 25, 2005

Camera-ready papers:
April 26, 2005

Conference start:
July 19, 2005

The papers should be submitted electronically through the CEC 2005 Online Submission System.
