Next generation web applications, context-aware applications, mixed-media information spaces – human-computer interaction aspects for those systems, such as interactive paper and cross-media solutions as well as multimodal and multi-touch interactions. New engineering methodologies, tools and software frameworks for the rapid prototyping and efficient realisation of innovative information environments.
Strong emphasis on conceptual modelling and design, reasoning on designs, localisation and globalisation, adaptation and personalisation, accessibility and usability in general. Important technologies used in this context are graphical and visual design languages, domain-specific modeling languages as well as design patterns. Important application domains are web applications, augmented and virtual reality, serious games and e-learning.
