=============================== 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 Ĺinfrastructuralĺ 
aspects of software, particularly
the mutual dependencies between  technologies, 
usages, and domain  competencies,
calls  for  a  differentiation  of  roles  beyond 
  the  classical  user-designer

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.

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original unpublished  work in all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

We invite two different types of paper submissions:
(a) long papers, up to sixteen pages, reporting on research or experience;
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  M°rch 
<[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.
