This report summarizes the results of a workshop on pattern languages for human-computer interaction which took place at the ChiliPLoP'99 Conference on Pattern Languages of Programming. It suggests a definition and taxonomy for interaction patterns, explains how Writers' Workshops are used to improve patterns, and points out some surprising issues about pattern languages as they are understood by key players in that field. It shows the importance of user interface and software engineering researchers to exchange their thoughts on this hot topic.
