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 systems)
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 candidate.
Doctoral Consortium submissions should not be anonymous.

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

Submissions can be done through
