Modern user interfaces are highly dynamic and interactive. They often compose in various ways user interface components. Thus, there is a need to understand what can be composed in user interfaces and how. This chapter presents a design space for user interface composition. The design space consists of five dimensions addressing aspects ranging from the UI abstraction level involved by the composition, the granularity of UI elements involved by the composition, the UI aspects that are affected by it, the time when such a composition occurs, and the type of web services involved in the composition. The design space is then analysed with respect to the capabilities of the capabilities of the ConcurTaskTrees and MARIA languages in order to show how it is possible to compose user interfaces at various abstraction levels.In order to provide a deeper insight, in the paper wealso present a number of excerpts for several composition examples.
