=============================== 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  their software themselves.  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 is growing
exponentially.  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
technologies  and  applications of  EUD.  Examples for  related  themes are  the
collective sense -making regarding  use problems and solution  alternatives, the
interactions among end users around new configurations, and delegation  patterns
that  may  involve professional  designers.  To this  end,  EUD brings  together
threads  of discussion  from Human-Computer  Interaction, Software  Engineering,
Computer Supported Cooperative Work, and 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 between them.

Authors are invited  to submit manuscripts  of original unpublished  work in all
areas related to EUD. Research papers may address cognitive and design  aspects,
underlying theories,  formal methods,  taxonomies, implementation  efforts, tool
support, and empirical studies. We  also solicit short papers that  present work
in  progress  or  demonstrations  of  tools.  We  solicit  original, unpublished
research papers that focus on one or more aspects of EUD.
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

We invite two different types of paper submissions:
(a) full papers, up to sixteen pages, reporting on research or experience;
(b) short  papers,  up  to  six  pages,  describing  work  in  progress  or tool

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
<[log in to unmask]>   and   Anders  Mørch  <[log in to unmask]> by
January 26, 2011. The acceptance notification will be sent by February 9, 2011.

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  <[log in to unmask]>
and Elisa Giaccardi <[log in to unmask]> by January 5, 2011. The acceptance
notification will be sent by February 28, 2011.
