Creating Personal Mobile Widgets without Programming

This item is a Paper in the Developers track.

Full text not available from this repository.


Our goal is to radically simplify the web so that end-users can perform their personal tasks with just a single click. For this, we define a concept called TaskLet to represent a task-based personal interaction pattern and propose a platform for automatically creating, sharing & executing them. TaskLets can be created even by a naive web user without programming knowledge, as we use the technique of Programming-By-Demonstration. TaskLets can be deployed on the client, cloud or on telecom provider network – enabling intuitive web interaction through widgets, thin mobile browsers as well as from mobile phones via SMS and Voice. Our key innovation is a tool and platform to enable end-users to simplify their personally valuable task. We wish to share the proposed tool with both expert web developers and naïve users of WWW to promote a wider developer community for mobile web applications.

About this site

This website has been set up for WWW2009 by Christopher Gutteridge of the University of Southampton, using our EPrints software.


We (Southampton EPrints Project) intend to preserve the files and HTML pages of this site for many years, however we will turn it into flat files for long term preservation. This means that at some point in the months after the conference the search, metadata-export, JSON interface, OAI etc. will be disabled as we "fossilize" the site. Please plan accordingly. Feel free to ask nicely for us to keep the dynamic site online longer if there's a rally good (or cool) use for it... [this has now happened, this site is now static]
