Subject:  CFP Domain Knowledge for Interactive System Design Call for Papers

This is a conference that is relevant to our interests, but it appears
that all of the people involved are from the software engineering and
intelligent interfaces communities.  In the interest of fostering
greater interaction, here it is...

        IFIP WG 8.1/13.2 Joint Working Conference

       Domain Knowledge for Interactive System Design

            May 8-10th 1996: Geneva, Switzerland

Program Chairs : Alistair Sutcliffe, City University, UK, Frans Van Assche,
Consultant, Belgium, David Benyon, Open University, UK

General Chair: Janis Bubenko, SISU, Sweden

Local Organiser:  Michel Leonard, University of Geneva, Switzerland

There is growing awareness of the importance of the need for explicit
capture and recording of domain knowledge in systems development. Analysis
and definition of requirements depends critically on domain knowledge and
use of such knowledge has vital influence on requirements and design of
interactive systems. This working conference will bring together
researchers and practitioners in information systems, software engineering
and human computer interaction who have interests in domain analysis and
modelling. The objective will be to advance understanding  about how domain
knowledge and its acquisition can empower system development methods,
techniques for human computer interaction and development support in CASE

Papers are sought on a variety of themes relating to domain analysis and

* Methods and techniques for analysis and modelling domain knowledge
* Definitions, metaschema and languages for domain modelling
* Development and use of domain knowledge in requirements engineering
* Impact of domains on functional and non functional requirements
* Domain analysis and modelling for software reuse
* Techniques for domain knowledge acquisition and model representation
* Groupware and collaborative capture of  domain knowledge
* Use and integration of domain knowledge in task and interaction design
* Enterprise models and knowledge of business contexts

The above topics span the acquisition, representation and use of domain
knowledge in systems development, although the list is not intended to be
exhaustive.  Papers which support their theoretical contributions with
empirical evidence will be favoured.

Papers Due 30th October 1995
