*2nd workshop on End-user Development in the Internet of Things Era **
*June 13, 2017  - Workshop co-located with IS-EUD 2017 - 6th International Symposium on End-User Development, Eindhoven, The Netherlands **

*Position Paper Submissions by 24th April **

End-user development (EUD) as a paradigm for enabling users to adapt systems to their personal needs has been the topic of research for almost three decades. In contrast to the early days, EUD now appears in many different contexts, such as offices, homes and even the public space. The form that EUD takes depends on the goals and skills of the end-user, on the technology available to design and implement systems, and most importantly the context of use. Nonetheless, solutions are often still formulated in terms of the technology to be used and such technology dictates required skills and capabilities regardless of context and potential situational end-user constraints.

*Goals and Agenda **
In this workshop, we want to explore a broader view on EUD that centralizes on highly-contextualized end-user needs. We want to explore how insights and techniques from the field of, amongst others, software, design and artificial intelligence, can be leveraged to create solutions that target casual or sporadic use, calm technology, ambient and peripheral interaction and, generally, the consumers' everyday.

*Workshop Format **
The program will be structured along three phases:
1.            A short introduction session in which participants share their interests and research background.
2.            A session with theme-based discussion rounds. In these rounds, we will discuss the following topics:
-              EUD fails and dystopia (design fiction, exploration)
-              EUD contextualized, user-centered approaches (personalization, customization, learning, sharing)
-              EUD for the everyday (casual/sporadic use, delegation of control, etc.)
3.            Finally, we conclude the workshop by consolidating the learnings from the previous rounds into "principles for better EUD for the Internet of Things era".

*Submissions **
Prospective participants should submit a 4-6 page position paper stating their interest in the workshop topic. Details on the submission process can be found on the website:
Please note that submissions are due on April 24, 2017.

*Organizers **
Daniel Tetteroo, Eindhoven University of Technology
Mathias Funk, Eindhoven University of Technology

*Dates **

Notification of acceptance: April 27th
Author registration deadline: April 30th
Camera ready deadline: May 11th
Workshop: June 13th
