*****/Given the circumstances regarding the diffusion of /*Covid-19*/,
and the consequent measures to restrict movement imposed by national and
international authorities, we are considering the possibility of running
the HCSE 2020 conference in alternative modalities./*****

*HCSE 2020*

*Call for Papers*

*8th International Working Conference on Human-Centered Software

*August 26th - 28th, 2020 - Eindhoven University of Technology,
Eindhoven, The Netherlands*

*HCSE*is a bi-annual, single-track, working conference organized by the
IFIP Working Group 13.2 on Methodology for User-Centred System Design
<>in cooperation
with IFIP Working Group 13.5 on Human Error, Resilience, Reliability,
Safety and System Development
<>. We aim at
*bringing together researchers and practitioners* interested in
strengthening the scientific foundations of user interface design,
examining the relationship between software engineering and
human-computer interaction and on how to strengthen human-centered
design as an essential part of software engineering processes. Other
topics of interest include:

●contributions to the theory and best practices of user-centered design

●design and architectural patterns for interactive systems

●involvement of end-users, clients and stakeholders in the development
process of interactive systems

●innovative methods for identifying end-user requirements for
interactive systems

●integration of user experience (and any other user interface property)
in development processes

●methods for designing, building and assessing interactive systems
beyond the desktop (e.g. the living room, ubiquitous and multi-display,
cockpits, etc.)

●models and model-based approaches for building interactive systems

●integration of multiple properties (e.g. usability, security,
reliability, user experience, privacy, accessibility, etc.) in software

●socio-technical aspects of interactive software development

●software architectures for interactive systems

●rational design and traceability of design choices.

HCSE 2020 welcomes contribution as *technical full papers, late breaking
results, demonstrations and posters*. All papers are peer-reviewed and
selected contributions will appear in the proceedings published by
Springer in the *LNCS* series.

In the present edition of *HCSE 2020* we are particularly interested in
studies focused on *multi-stakeholder* concepts and how to cope with
multi-stakeholders taking into account not only micro perspective but on
the systemic change level. As in past editions, the focus of the working
group is on *user interface properties *(such as usability, ux, privacy,
trust, security, reliability, adaptability, among other) and how to
design, develop and evaluate based on a *user-centered development
process*. We are interested in understanding how different stakeholders
and developers value diverse user interface properties and how they
manage conflicts between them (when one property might degrade the value
of another) on a systemic change level. Our aim is to cover a large set
of user interface properties and try to reveal their inner dependencies.
We are particularly interested in the development of theories, methods,
tools and approaches for dealing with multiple properties that should be
taken into account when developing interactive systems.

*HCSE*welcomes the following types of contributions: **

●*Technical full papers*(*up to 20 pages*) should describe substantial
research contributions of novel work that has produced advanced results
including validation of results.

●*Late-breaking results*(*up to 12 pages*) are short papers that present
work in progress, new practice and experience reports containing good
(and bad) practices and/or recent practical evaluations of methods,
techniques and tools.

●*Demonstrations and posters*(*5–8 pages, plus poster design draft*)
should present ongoing work and/or late-breaking results related to the
use of innovative tools and cutting-edge systems not described in other
paper submissions. Demonstration papers should provide description of
tools including user tasks and evidence of use to end-users. Demo
submissions should summarize the system’s significance and its
performance and should either include screenshots or link to an
online-accessible resource. The poster design draft should show the
planned design and content of the poster that will be presented at the
conference. Industry contributions to demos and posters are particularly
welcome and highly encouraged.

*Submissions and Reviewing Process*

Contributions should be sent via *EasyChair*
( All submissions will
be peer-reviewed for their topical relevance, originality, technical
contribution, and presentation quality by the members of the
international program committee. Technical full papers and late-breaking
results short papers will be reviewed *double-blind*, demonstrations and
posters *single-blind*. Authors must prepare their submission files
accordingly! For poster submissions, both paper and poster design draft
will be assessed for review. It will be possible for the program
committee to suggest accepting submissions in other than their original
submission categories.


If  we hold a physical conference, under the current circumstances, all
accepted submissions will be presented at the conference in technical
sessions. It will be possible for authors of accepted technical full
papers and late-breaking results short papers to give tool demos as well
without submitting additional demo papers.


Accepted contributions must be formatted according to the guidelines of
the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
<>series of
Springer. Authors are requested to prepare submissions as close as
possible to final camera-ready versions.
