Abstract
In the last years there has been a high production of groupware systems. However, most of these
systems have been based on the desktop metaphor. We propose a translation process based on
the use of the conceptual model (or, particularly, on the task model and the data model) of the
original application. From this model and by means of a pattern-based reengineering process, we
obtain mobile versions of the original systems. In this paper the user interface reengineering
process is described and an example of the application of patterns for the evolution of a specific
system, Domosim-TPC, is shown.
