Hello all,

My thesis subject is about using reasoning and semantic web technologies to
enable the  "on-the-fly" of generation graphical user interfaces. It is not
about letting reasoners "invent" new graphical user interfaces.

In a typical scenario a GUI would be generated based on the data that needs
to presented, predefined UI-patterns, application-specific GUI guidelines,
context information, etc. Based on all these inputs, a reasoner could then
offer a representation of the form to be represented to the user. Using a
mapping of this representation to an implementation, one could then
visualise the form. I am currently working on an xHTML / AJAX based demo.

For this, I am looking for previous ontology work to model the field of
graphical user interfaces. Google has not been very helpful yet.

Any input from this list would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Lennert Acke.
