*Final Call for Papers:*

*IS-EUD 2017 – 6^th International Symposium on End User Development *

*Eindhoven, The Netherlands

*June 13-15, 2017*


End-user development is a field that aims to empower end-users who are 
not necessarily experts in software development, to create their own 
software to address their specific needs. It is an interdisciplinary 
field that traditionally relates to areas such as Psychology of 
Programming, Empirical Studies in Software Engineering, and Human 
Computer Interaction. Recent technological trends like Ubiquitous 
Computing, Tangible and Embodied interaction, and the Internet of 
Things, Online Communities, and Crowdsourcing have renewed interest in 
End-User Development, which emerges as an approach to empower end-users, 
transforming their role from a passive audience to active creators of 
their technological habitat.

IS-EUD is a bi-annual event that gathers researchers interested to 
extend our knowledge about how to design end-user development 
technologies and to provide scientific accounts of phenomena surrounding 
end-user development practices.

IS-EUD 2017  is in cooperation with ACM SIGCHI and focuses on the topics 
of empowerment and materiality. We are looking for research into 
End-User Development technologies that empower end-users to magnify 
their reach and control over the physical world, that allow them to 
engage actively in societal trends and transformations.


The conference welcomes contributions that

·describe new, simple and efficient environments for end-user development,

·describe new processes and methods for designing open ended solutions 
and empowering users to cover the last mile of software development,

·present case studies and design implications on challenges and 
practices of end user development and user creativity

·develop theoretical concepts and foundations for the field of end-user 

Specific topics include (but are not limited to) the following ones:

·End-User Development and the Internet of Things

·End-User Development in daily life

·Technologies and infrastructures for End-User Development

·Methods and tools for End-User Development

·Case studies of End-User Development

·Crowdsourcing design and development work

·Recommender systems to support End-User Development

·Cultures of participation and meta-design approaches

·Open-ended design

·Web 2.0 and mash-up technologies enabling End-User Development

·End-User Development and robots

·End-User Development of context-dependent applications

·Technology acceptance and adoption studies

·Evaluation of End-User Development technologies

·End users as designers of interactive systems and environments

We invite two different types of paper submissions:

(a) long papers, up to 16 pages, describing original unpublished 
research making a substantial contribution to the research field.

(b) short papers, up to 8 pages, describing original unpublished 
research, making a small but solid contribution to the field.

All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Accepted 
papers (both long and short) will appear in the archival proceedings of 
IS-EUD 2017, published by Springer in the Lecture Notes on Computer 
Science (LNCS) series, and will be presented in plenary sessions of the 


Work in progress submissions (max 4 pages) are intended for presenting 
preliminary results or tentative findings and position papers. The 
authors of accepted contributions will have the opportunity to give an 
oral presentation during parallel sessions. Accepted abstracts will be 
published in an extended abstracts volume.


Submit an abstract formatted (max 4 pages) describing the following:

- Abstract (150 words maximum)

- Topics to be covered and their relevance to the EUD community

- Detailed description of the planned demonstration activity

- Diagrams or screenshots (if relevant).

- Supporting documentation (e.g., project website)


High quality workshop proposals are invited (max 4 pages) aligned to the 
themes of the conference. Workshops provide an informal setting where 
participants have the opportunity to discuss specific topics in an 
atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. Workshops can be 
half day or one-day long.


The IS-EUD Doctoral Consortium is intended to bring together PhD 
students working on theory and application of EUD. We particularly 
encourage students that are about half-way through their doctoral 
research to submit doctoral consortium abstracts (max 4 pages) 
describing the topic of their PhD, their approach and a summary of their 


Papers must be carefully formatted according to the Springer LNCS format

the EasyChair
