ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems

Call for Late Breaking Results papers
ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems
Copenhagen, Denmark | June 25-28, 2012

IMPORTANT: LBR submissions due 30 March (earlier than previously

EICS 2012 is the fourth international conference devoted to engineering
usable and effective interactive computing systems. Topics of interest
include multi-device interactive systems, new and emerging modalities
(e.g., gesture), entertaining applications (e.g., mobile and ubiquitous
games), safety critical systems (e.g. medical devices), and design and
development methods (e.g., extreme programming).

EICS focuses on methods, techniques, and tools for designing and
developing interactive systems. The conference brings together people who
study or practice the engineering of interactive systems, drawing from
HCI, Software Engineering, Requirements Engineering, CSCW, Ubiquitous and
Pervasive Systems, and Game Development communities.

Submissions are invited that advance the state of the art of the
engineering of human-computer interactive systems. Topics include but are
not limited to:

* modelling interaction and interactive systems
* processes for engineering interactive systems (e.g. design,
implementation, prototyping, evaluation, and testing)
* integrating interaction design into the software development process
* requirements engineering for interactive systems
* specification of interactive systems (methods, principles and tools)
* software architectures for interactive systems
* frameworks, toolkits, and APIs for interactive systems (e.g. API
usability, interaction-driven API design)
* domain-specific languages for interactive systems
* formal methods for HCI
* specifying and modelling users’ activities
* engineering innovative interactive applications (e.g., adaptive,
multimodal, collaborative, tangible)
* end-user development of interactive systems
* engineering user experience (e.g., fun, affective)
* engineering complex interactive systems (e.g., large datasets, large
communities, enterprise systems)

Late breaking results submissions (6 pages, anonymized, in SIGCHI
publication format) should provide a short report on relevant work in
progress. The conference program committee will decide if accepted
submissions are to be presented as a short talk, as a demonstration, or as
a poster. Authors wishing to present in the form of a demonstration are
encouraged to provide a preliminary video illustrating the proposed

Late breaking result papers will be classified into one of the following
Technical solution papers present solutions that are novel or
significantly improve existing solutions to the engineering of interactive
computing systems. A technical solution paper must include a preliminary
assessment of the proposed solution. The solution must be stated clearly
enough so that it is possible to replicate it in later research.

Case study papers report experience gained on case studies and on applying
engineering to large scale interactive computing applications. We are
interested in the problems and challenges faced, and in how successful, or
not, the adopted solutions were.

Accepted contributions will be published in the ACM SIGCHI proceedings of
EICS 2012 as well as in the ACM Digital Library.
