- The first PDF, Application of Software Mining to Automatic User Interface Generation, looks at applying the emerging field of Software Mining to a form generator. This is where Metawidget's Inspectors come from.
- The second PDF, Separation Anxiety: stresses of developing a modern day Separable User Interface, looks at just how much of an application's UI is already defined and constrained by its back-end architecture. Repeating those definitions and constraints can only lead to duplication in the UI layer.
- The third PDF, Towards a General Purpose Architecture for UI Generation, attempts to generalize some common characteristics of form generation in order for it to be useful for real-world applications.

I thought I'd post some of the academic papers and articles I've written, to make it easier for those outside academic institutions to access them. While Metawidget is very focused on being a practical form generator, there's a lot of theoretical background underpinning it:
