EICS 2019 joined call for Late-Breaking Results, Tech Notes, Tutorials,
and Doctoral Consortium Submissions (Deadline: March 18, 2019)

EICS 2019: The 11th ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive
Computing Systems, 18-21 June, 2019 - Valencia, Spain

EICS 2019 is the eleventh international conference devoted to
engineering usable and effective interactive computing systems. Work
presented at EICS covers the full range of aspects that come into play
when "engineering" interactive systems, such as innovations in the
design, development, deployment, verification and validation of
interactive systems. Topics of interest include the design and
development of systems incorporating new interaction techniques and
multimodal interaction, multi-user, multi-device/screen,
multi-environment interaction, mobile and pervasive systems, large-scale
and big data applications, deployment of interactive systems, as well as
novel development methods and processes for improving the development of
interactive systems.

EICS 2019 focuses on models, languages, notations, 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, Conceptual Modelling, CSCW, Ubiquitous /
Pervasive Systems.

Late-Breaking Results Submissions

Late-Breaking Results describe preliminary results of ongoing research
or incremental work that present new ideas, concepts, systems or
approaches. LBR will be published in the conference's companion
proceedings as 6 page papers. Those proceedings will be available in the
ACM DL. LBR are intended for eliciting useful feedback on early-stage or
incremental work, that can benefit from discussions with colleagues in
the EICS community. We welcome papers that are suitable for
demonstration at the conference and supplementary video showing the
system in action is encouraged.
LBR are published as a paper in the standard ACM SIGCHI format of
maximum 6 pages (including references).
LBR submissions need to be anonymized.

Tech Notes Submissions

We are delighted to announce a new “Tech Notes” track that focuses on
strong technical engineering contributions. EICS Tech Notes are 6-page
papers that focus specifically on system contributions and technical
work, including (but not limited to):

    Infrastructures and architectures
    (high-level toolkits, frameworks, networking infrastructures, the
big systems picture)
    Technical realizations of specific interaction techniques
    (e.g., sensing & recognition, computer vision implementations,
rendering pipelines)
    Engineering of physical interactive systems
    (e.g., toolkits for physical computing or fabrication, hacking or
modding of machinery for interactive purposes)
    Computational constructs
    (e.g., optimization methods, mathematical modelling of HCI systems,
model-driven UI design)
    Specification and verification
    (e.g. language representations for HCI, formal approaches,
optimization methods, semantic models, testing / checking interactive
Tech Notes submissions should not be anonymous.

Tutorials Submissions

EICS'19 invites proposals for tutorials on challenging topics of
interactive systems engineering. Tutorials should aim at offering new
insights, knowledge, and skills to managers, teachers, researchers, and
students to explore innovative trends and to learn new techniques from
experts in the field. Tutorials are intended to provide a broad overview
of a topic beyond a regular paper presentation.

Potential presenters should keep in mind that there may be quite a
varied audience, including novice graduate students, seasoned
practitioners, and specialized researchers. Each tutorial proposal will
be evaluated on its anticipated benefit for prospective participants and
its fit within the tutorial program as a whole. Other factors to be
considered include relevance to practice and to research, timeliness,
importance, and audience appeal, as well as past experience and
qualifications of the instructors.

The proposal should include a two-page description of the proposed
tutorial, accompanied by additional information on the proposers'
background and three sample slides from the presentation that you would
give if your tutorial were accepted.
Tutorials submissions should not be anonymous.

Doctoral Consortium Submissions

The Doctoral Consortium (DC) provides an opportunity for PhD students to
present their research goals as well as intermediate results and to
discuss them with leading experts in the field as well as with peers.

The goals of the Doctoral Consortium are:

    To provide fruitful feedback and advice to the selected PhD students
on their research project
    To provide the opportunity to meet experts
    To interact with other PhD students and stimulate an exchange of
ideas and suggestions among participants

Students can be in intermediate or advanced stages of their research,
but should not have completed their work yet, and should thus still be
able to take feedback from the Consortium into account.

A submission consists of a short paper (max 4 pages ACM Extended
Abstract Format, references excluded), and a free-form CV of the PhD
Doctoral Consortium submissions should not be anonymous.

Submissions deadline: March 18, 2019 (5PM CET)
Notifications: April 22, 2019

Submissions can be done through
