The MBUI working group is focusing on developing specifications for 
models for tasks and the abstract user interfaces. A W3C Community Group 
has been proposed with a complementary role that aims to bring together 
developers and researchers to focus on encouraging a broader 
understanding and exploring opportunities for further standardization 
work, e.g. domain models, adaptation rules and concrete user interface 
models for various kinds of platforms. Here is the description:

Ubiquitous Application Design Community Group

People are looking to use applications and services on an ubiquitous 
range of devices. For developers, this raises the challenge of tailoring 
the user experience according to the device and context in which it is 
used. Application development teams involve a wide range of roles and 
skills: business requirements, data models and interfaces, usability and 
accessibility, graphical design and brand management, as well as the 
expertise required for specific target platforms. This Community Group 
seeks to bring together developers and researchers to explore and 
promote techniques for context aware design that separates out different 
aspects of design to speed development and reduce costs. We will do this 
through gathering and discussing techniques, together with developing 
open source demonstrators.

The new community group should be available later today, and I 
anticipate that the URI will be as follows:

    http://www.w3.org/community/uad/

Once the CG has been created, I will add some introductory materials to 
the CG's wiki as a basis for discussion via the group's email list.  For 
open source, my suggestion is to use GitHub, and I plan to create a 
repository for that purpose to which we can the add projects, e.g. the 
experimental work I have been doing for Serenoa on authoring tools.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
