EICS 2020 : Engineering Interactive Computing System
The 12th ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive Computing 
23-26 June, 2020 - Nice (Sophia Antipolis), France

EICS 2020 is the twelfth international conference devoted to engineering 
interactive computing systems and their user interfaces, addressing one 
or more software quality factors, such as usability, reliability etc.(as 
defined by ISO2501, see

Work presented at EICS covers all processes at any stage of the 
development life-cycle (requirements, specification, verification and 
validation, testing, deployment).
Any of the following topics of interest may be addressed as long as 
their engineering contribution is highlighted:


EICS 2020 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.

Submissions are invited that advance the state of the art of the 
engineering of interactive systems. Topics include, but are not limited 

* Modelling and analysis of interaction and interactive systems 
(including user interface)
* Processes for engineering interactive systems (e.g., design, 
implementation, prototyping, evaluation, verification and validation, 
* 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)
* Languages and notations for describing user interfaces and 
* Domain-specific languages for interactive systems
* Formal methods within interactive systems engineering
* Modelling and analysis of users’ activities
* Engineering innovative interactive applications (e.g., adaptive, 
tangible, touch and multitouch input, voice, gesture, EEG, multimodal 
input, mobile and wearable systems)
* Engineering hardware/software integration in interactive systems 
(e.g., fabrication and maker processes, physical computing, etc.)
* Engineering user experience (e.g., fun, affective)
* Engineering complex interactive systems (e.g., large datasets, large 
communities, enterprise systems, collaborative systems)
* Engineering interactive systems for various user categories 
(e.g.,children, elderly, people with disabilities)
* Certification issues of interactive systems
* New datasets and evaluation data relevant for engineering interactive 


Topics described above may be described in contributions of one, or 
more, of the following types:

* Proof of Concept - demonstration of the applicability of an 
approach/tool/method/architecture/framework/design space
* Case Study - collect detailed project data to demonstrate the 
benefits/shortcomings of the approach/artefacts used. May include 
datasets derived from the study.
* Comparative Study - monitor several projects to collect data on impact 
of the technology/method
* Formal Analysis - uses a formal analysis method or tool to analyse an 
artefact, e.g formal proof, model-driven approach, graph-based approach, 
user, UI and/or interaction modelling. Applying an approach.
* Theory/Formal Method - describes a new method/engineering approach for 
addressing research questions in EICS.
* Literature Review/Survey - Evaluate published studies that analyse the 
behaviour of similar methods/tools. Systematic mapping, systematic 
literature review etc.
* Experiment - perform a qualitative/quantitative analysis of a

EICS papers are now published as articles in the journal Proceedings of 
the ACM on Human Computer Interaction (EICS series), Vol. 4, Issue EICS. 
Paper submissions still follow the normal conference review process, but 
this process is iterated multiple times per year. Submissions to this 
venue should present original and mature research work. There are no 
length restrictions on papers, nor any limit to the number of references 
that may be included. Papers may be accepted after submission and 
review, or recommended for revisions and re-submission to the next round 
to enable authors to refine papers based on reviewer 
recommendations.Submissions should indicate the type and topics of the 
contribution from the lists above so that the paper will be reviewed 
according to the criteria given above. Submissions which do not match 
the above topics and types of contributions will be desk-rejected.

More information about the next PACM-HCI (EICS series) review and 
publication process can be found at

Papers should be written in the ACM small format, see:

Upcoming deadlines for papers to be presented at EICS 2020 are 
(AoE-Anywhere on Earth):

* 2019 Q4: Submission deadline  October 25th, 2019
* 2020 Q1: Submission deadline  February 14th, 2020

Submissions can be made through
