User Interfaces Composition with UsiXML

This paper presents novel ongoing works on user interfaces composition. These works have emerged with the problematic of component software composition transposed to the Human-Computer Interaction domain. Some software architectures indeed allow components assembling at the final design step. Our work, based on UsiXML, aims at proposing a composition/decomposition of user interfaces.
These works begin with the concrete level of UsiXML dedicated to the graphical modality and continue with higher abstraction levels. This article provides a positioning of the proposal related to composition compared to the seven dimensions related to the "μ7" concept of UsiXML project.
