ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction (TOCHI)
Special Issue on End User Development for the Internet of Things

Special Issue Editors

Volkmar Pipek (University of Siegen)

Deadline for Submissions: March 22, 2016

The advent of massively interconnected objects, devices, and sensors ‹
commonly referred to as the Internet of Things ‹ raises equally massive
challenges regarding the interfaces that will allow end-users to manage
the complexity of such systems and to exploit the opportunities such
technologies open up.

A promising approach, known as End-User Development, empowers end users to
define and tailor the functions of their systems in order to satisfy their
personal, local, and often task-specific needs. In the context of the
Internet of Things, and the diverse tools and methodologies now available
to support the design of interactive systems, the field of End-User
Development finds itself at a critical juncture of growth and wide impact,
as the need to support personal, context specific, and emergent needs
largely exceeds what is known from more conventional interactive systems.

This special issue will publish compelling papers exploring metaphors,
interfaces, and development strategies for supporting users in
customization and personalization of the Internet of Things. Contributions
may take the form of studies, methodologies, or system implementations
that explore context-dependent or application-specific behaviors of
networked objects. Likewise, contributions that reflect on or take issue
with the appropriateness of End-User Development as a strategy to face
these challenges are welcome.

Possible topics include:

The key topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
* Empowerment of end-users to understand, configure, personalize, and
control Internet of Things applications
* Design methods and approaches for end-users specific to the Internet of
* Domain specific tools, architectures, and authoring environments for
supporting end-user development
* Contextual factors promoting end-user development practices
* Sociable computing approaches for end-user development of Internet of
Things ecologies
* Novel methodologies for evaluating emerging end-user interactions with
the Internet of Things
