Since the first work on MAD, task modeling is very active in the francophone research community. Formalisms and tools have been designed, such as K-MAD, eCOMM and HAMSTERS, which are alternatives to the well known Fabio Paterno's CTT. Many teams are using these tools with different goals, and task modeling appears as a major topic in Model-Driven Engineering. Last, advances in task modeling encourage giving more space to this topic in HCI education.
During the last Ergo-IHM 2012 conference, a whole conference was dedicated to the task models topic, an their usage in design process and interactive system evaluation.
