The First International Workshop on
Combining Design and Engineering of Interactive Systems through Models and Tools (ComDeisMoto)
is an official IFIP WG 2.7/13.4 Workshop and will be held in conjunction with
INTERACT 2011 - 13th IFIP TC13 Conference on Human-Computer Interaction,
at September 6th, 2011, in Lisbon, Portugal .


  • 18 Aug 2011: We are happy to announce that the keynote will be given by Philippe Palanque
  • 27 June 2011: Deadline has been extended to July 3rd, 23:59 Pacific Time, PDT (strict)
  • 19 May 2011: Call for Papers as PDF


Development of interactive systems and their user interfaces combines engineering and design, for­mal and informal development methods from different domains. Diverse models and tools can be used to support the developers’ work. In model-driven development, software systems are specified sys­tem­at­ical­ly using dedicated models for different aspects of the system. Yet, appropriate design of user interfaces is as important as functional correctness.

This workshop focuses on challenges, opportunities, practical problems, and proposed solutions to integrate Model-Driven Development (MDD) of interactive systems and informal design methods and tools. It aims at fostering interdisciplinary discussions between the respective expert groups and viewpoints. Workshop participants investigate how models, tools and current or future MDD tech­niques can be combined with design expertise in a way that improves the development process for interactive systems, better supports the work of UI creators and eventually benefits the user ex­pe­ri­ence (UX) of end users. Our objective is improving the tools for software engineers and UI de­vel­opers, being the creators and users of models, e.g. by integrating design measures in engi­neer­ing models, providing modeling tools for designers or novel methods for MDD.
