                          IMPORTANT DATES

                Submission deadline: 23 July, 2006

            Acceptance notification: 10 September, 2006

     Final version for the pre-proceedings due: 12 October, 2006

     Reducing the likelihood of human error in the use of interactive
     systems is increasingly important: the use of such systems is
     becoming widespread in applications that demand high reliability
     due to safety, security, financial or similar considerations.
     Consequently, the use of formal methods in verifying the
     correctness of interactive systems should also include analysis
     of human behaviour in interacting with the interface.
     The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers in
     computer science and cognitive psychology, from both academia
     and industry, who are interested in developing formal and
     semi-formal methodologies and tools for the evaluation and
     verification of interactive systems. The outcome is to establish
     a worldwide network of researchers interested in applying formal
     methods to HCI.
     The workshop will focus on, though will not be restricted to,

       * general design and verification methodologies
         based on cognitive psychology

     as well as application areas such as

       * mobile devices;
       * embedded systems;
       * safety-critical systems;
       * high-reliability systems;
       * shared control systems;
       * digital libraries;
       * eGovernment;
       * pervasive systems;
       * augmented reality.

     The one-day workshop will feature a one hour presentation by a
     keynote speaker together with contributed papers that will
     undergo a peer-review process. Contributed papers may be
     accepted either for full presentation or short presentation.


     Papers accepted as full paper presentations will be published by
     Elsevier in the series Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer
     Science (ENTCS). Papers accepted as short paper presentations
     will be published in the participants' proceedings at the
     workshop only. Detailed information on the submission procedure
     is available below.
     Publication of a selection of the papers in a journal special
     issue is also under consideration.

     IFMIS 2006 will be organised jointly between the International
     Institute for Software Technology of the United Nations
     University (UNU-IIST) and the EPSRC Human Error Modelling (HUM)
     Project of the University of London (QMUL and UCL).
     UNU-IIST and EPSRC-HUM are also sponsors of ICTAC 2006.


     Submissions to the workshop must not have been published or be
     concurrently considered for publication elsewhere.
     All submissions will be peer-reviewed and judged on the basis
     of originality, contribution to the field, technical and
     presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop.
     Papers should be written in English and not exceed 16 pages
     in ENTCS format.
     Authors should utilize the ENTCS macro files that have been
     specially prepared for use with ENTCS. The generic ENTCS package,
     which contains files common for all volumes in ENTCS and
     includes several examples, as well as instructions, can be
     downloaded from
     The entcsmacro.sty file in the ENTCS package should be be
     replaced by the prentcsmacro.sty file, which is specific to
     FMIS 2006 and can be downloaded from
     File prentcsmacro.sty has to be renamed entcsmacro.sty.
     File example.tex has to be used as a template for the paper,
     making sure that key words are included in the frontmatter
     section where indicated.
     Authors also should not use any formatting commands that alter
     the ENTCS style definitions. This includes the format of
     Definitions, Lemmas, Theorems, etc., as well as the spacing
     that is defined by the ENTCS Macros.
     Authors must submit their papers in pdf format to the website
     no later than Sunday 23 July 2006.
     All queries should be sent to: fmis2006 AT iist.unu.edu.
