Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce an upcoming W3C Workshop:

   Future Standards for Model-Based User Interfaces
   13-14 May 2001
   Rome, Italy
   http://www.w3.org/2010/02/mbui/cfp
   Hosted by CNR-ISTI [1]
   Co-Chairs: Dave Raggett (W3C) and Fabio Paterṇ (CNR-ISTI)


Participants will examine the challenges facing Web developers due to
variations in device capabilities, modes of interaction and software
standards, the need to support assistive technologies for
accessibility, and the demand for richer user interfaces. Discussion
will focus on reviewing research on model-based design of context-
sensitive user interfaces in relation to these challenges, and the
opportunities for new open standards in the area of Model-Based User
Interfaces.
