EICS 2014 - The 6th ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive
Computing Systems
17-20 June 2014
Rome, Italy  


EICS is the sixth international conference devoted to the engineering of
usable and effective interactive computing systems. Systems of interest
will include traditional workstation-based interactive systems, new and
emerging modalities (e.g. gesture), entertaining applications (e.g.
mobile and ubiquitous games) and development methods (e.g. extreme

EICS focuses on methods, techniques and tools that support 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 / Pervasive Systems and Game Development communities.

The conference proceedings are published by the ACM and appear in the
ACM Digital Library.

Submissions are invited that address some aspect 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)
* Models and tools for interacting with semantic data
* User interfaces for big data
* User interface software and technologies for ambient assisted living



Three Workshops:
* Engineering Interactive Systems with SCXML
* Engineering Gestures for Multimodal User Interfaces
* HCI Engineering: Charting the Way towards Methods and Tools for 
Advanced Interactive

Two Invited Speakers:
* Yvonne Rogers (University College London)
* Krzysztof Gajos (Harvard University)

Sessions on Model-based  UIs, Multimodal and Web applications, 
Collaborative environments, Analytic techniques, Adaptation, Touch and 
Gesture -- based UIs, Frameworks for Cross-device Interaction, 
Prototyping and Development frameworks.
