W3C announces today the new Model-Based User Interfaces (MBUI) Working Group. The mission of the Model-Based UI Working Group is to develop standards as a basis for interoperability across authoring tools for context aware user interfaces for Web-based interactive applications. Application developers face increasing difficulties due to wide variations in device capabilities, in the details of the standards they support, the need to support assistive technologies for accessibility, the demand for richer user interfaces, the suites of programming languages and libraries, and the need to contain costs and meet challenging schedules during the development and maintenance of applications. The Model-Based UI Working Group will start from extensive experience with model-based user interface design solutions, and will provide a strong basis for interoperable authoring tools for interactive application front ends, with HTML5 as a key delivery platform.
