The Next Step: From End-User Programming to End-User Software 
WEUSE II Workshop at CHI 2006, Montréal, Quebec, Canada, April 23, 2006

Call for Participation

End-user programmers create large amounts of software, using 
environments such as spreadsheets, web authoring tools, and Matlab, but 
in the process they often introduce errors. This second Workshop on 
End-User Software Engineering (WEUSE II) will follow up on the First 
Workshop on End-User Software Engineering (WEUSE I) held in conjunction 
with ICSE'05.

This one-day CHI'06 workshop will have two primary goals: (1) to share 
information among researchers and practitioners interested in this 
area, and (2) to concretely match end-user software engineering 
problems and applications in industry with potential solutions drawn 
from new and emerging research findings. One possible additional 
outcome of the workshop will be a survey paper on the state of the art 
in this area.


Research participants from academia or industry: Send a position paper 
of 2-3 pages to Margaret Burnett ([log in to unmask]) 
describing your research interest and background in this area.

Other industrial participants should describe their own real-world 
needs in the area of reliability for end-user software, and their own 
background related to this area. 1 page is sufficient, but up to 3 
pages are allowed. Send to Margaret Burnett 
([log in to unmask]).

Selection criteria will include participants' backgrounds and 
interests, quality of the work described in position papers, achieving 
a spectrum of interesting perspectives, and achieving an appropriate 
balance between industry and academia.

Important Dates:

*  Jan. 13, 2006: Position papers due (no extensions!)
*  Jan. 23, 2006: Notification of acceptance.
*  Apr. 23, 2006: Workshop.

Organizing Committee:

Margaret Burnett, Oregon State University
Brad Myers, Carnegie Mellon University
Mary Beth Rosson, Pennsylvania State University
Susan Wiedenbeck, Drexel University
