Abstract

User interface design is a multidisciplinary field at the crossroads between software engineering, computer science, psychology and cognitive science. HCI pattern writers focus on usability and human aspects of the interface. They use elaborate narrative formats to convey theories and practices of interaction design. Pattern users are typically software developers who need concise and pragmatic guidance of when and how patterns can be used. Narrative descriptions make it difficult to integrate patterns into design (CASE) tools. In this paper, we discuss how patterns can be represented in XML to effectively support their dissemination and assimilation in a programmable environment.
