IS-End User Development (EUD) 2011 CfP

====== CALL FOR PAPERS ================================
Third International Symposium on End-User Development (IS-EUD 2011)
Torre Canne, Brindisi, Italy, June 7-10 2011

End-User Development (EUD) offers lightweight, use-time support which allows end users to configure, adapt and  evolve software themselves. As organizations  and work practices vary widely and evolve rapidly, the technological  infrastructure has to permit and even  support these changes. Traditional Software  Engineering approaches reach their  limits whenever the  full spectrum of  user requirements cannot be  anticipated or  the frequency  of changes  cannot be  accommodated by traditional processes.  EUD refers  to a  set of  methods, techniques, and tools that  allow  users acting  as  non-professional software  developers  to create, modify or extend a software artifact.

The deployment of Web 2.0 technologies resulted in the exponential growth of the number of end-user developers compared to the number of software  professionals.

The increasing importance of ‘infrastructural’ aspects of software, particularly the mutual dependencies between  technologies, usages, and domain  competencies, calls  for  a  differentiation  of  roles  beyond  the  classical  user-designer dichotomy.

The International Symposium on EUD brings together researchers and practitioners from  industry  and  academia working  in the  field of  EUD. While  programming activities  by  non-professional  actors  are  an  essential  focus,  EUD also investigates into related activities within the process of developing a software infrastructure,  e.g.  the  collective  understanding  and  sense-making  of use problems and solution alternatives, the interactions among end users around  new configurations,  and   delegation  patterns   that  may   also  partly   involve professional designers. To this end,  EUD brings together threads of  discussion from disciplines like Human-Computer Interaction, Software Engineering, Computer Supported   Cooperative  Work,   Artificial  Intelligence.   Concepts  such   as configurability,  tailorability,   end-user  programming,   visual  programming, natural programming, and  programming by example  already form a  fruitful base, but need to be better integrated to exploit the synergy among them.

——————————————————————-SCOPE AND TOPICS
——————————————————————-Authors are invited  to submit manuscripts  of original unpublished  work in all areas related to EUD. Long  papers  may  address  work  on cognitive and  design aspects,  underlying  theories,   formal  methods,  taxonomies,   implementation efforts, tool support, and empirical studies. Short papers that present work  in progress  or  demonstrations of  tools  are also  solicited.

 Areas of  interest include, but are not limited to:
* Requirements for EUD
* User Interfaces for EUD
* EUD for specific types of devices
* EUD in specific fields of application
* EUD for user groups with specific needs
* Architectures for EUD
* Metaphors and patterns for software modularization supporting EUD
* Deployment of Web 2.0 technologies, Mash-ups
* Empirical studies of EUD practices
* EUD as part of software infrastructure development and evolution
* Support for collaboration among non-professional programmers
* Cooperation between EUD and professional software developers
* EUD and Open Source
* Educational concepts to foster EUD
* Micro-economical effects of EUD
* Macro-economical impact of EUD
* Business models for EUD solutions
* Political implications of EUD
* Cultures of Participation and Meta-design 

——————————————————————-PAPER SUBMISSION

——————————————————————-We invite two different types of paper submissions:

(a) long papers, up to sixteen pages, reporting on research or experience;
(b) short  papers,  up  to  six  pages,  describing  work  in  progress  or tool demonstrations.

Paper  submission  deadline  is  January  5,  2011.

To aid in reviewer assignments,  we also request that prospective authors submit titles and abstracts by December 17, 2010.

Papers  must  be  formatted  in  Springer  LNCS  format  and  must be  submitted electronically. All submissions will be reviewed by members of the international Program Committee.  Accepted  papers (both long  and short)  will appear in  the proceedings of IS-EUD  2011, published by Springer as  Lecture Notes on Computer Science (LNCS).  Short papers will be  presented at the conference as  poster or live demo in a specific session.

——————————————————————-Workshops complement the  scientific program. They  provide an informal  setting where  participants  have  the  opportunity to  discuss  specific  topics  in an atmosphere  that  fosters the  active  exchange of  ideas  in the  area  of EUD.

Workshops will be held on June 7, 2011.

Workshop proposals should be sent to the Workshop Co-Chairs  Anne Marie Kanstrup<>   and   Anders  Mrch  <> by

January 26, 2011. The acceptance notification will be sent by February 9, 2011.

 ——————————————————————DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM

——————————————————————-The  IS-EUD  Doctoral Consortium  is  intended to  bring  together PhD  students working  on theory  and application  of EUD.  To provide  fruitful feedback  and advice to the selected Ph.D. students on their research thesis. We  particularly encourage students that are somewhere in the middle of their research to  submit to this workshop. Applications to the Doctoral Consortium (up to 4 pages) should be sent to the Doctoral Consortium Co-Chairs Daniela Fogli  <> and Elisa Giaccardi <> by January 5, 2011. The acceptance notification will be sent by February 28, 2011.
