Call for Participation

Workshop on Perspectives in End User Development
(in conjunction with the ACM CHI 2003 Conference)

Henry Lieberman, MIT MediaLab, Cambridge, USA
Fabio Paterno, ISTI-C.N.R., Italy
Alexander Repenning, University of Colorado, USA
Volker Wulf, University of Siegen and Fraunhofer FIT

The wide-spread penetration of interactive software systems has raised
an increasing need for better environments for building applications.
The interactive richness of new devices has created the potential to
overcome the traditional separation between end users and software
developers. New environments able to seamlessly move between using and
programming (or customizing) can be designed. Advanced techniques for
developing applications can be used by individuals as well as by groups
or social communities or organizations. There are studies that indicate
that the end-user programming population will be growing at more than 10
percent per year worldwide.

The goal of the workshop is to bring about a coherent research agenda in
the field of end user development. We seek contributors concerned with:
adaptability, adaptivity, tailoring of system functionality and user
interfaces, the use of annotations for individuals and user groups, and
use of effective visual and multimedia representations.

Topics of interests include:
- end user development architectures
- innovative scripting languages
- web-programming
- adaptive and situation aware applications
- interfaces for end user programming
- collaborative programming/tailoring activities
- design principles for end user environment
- psychology of end user programming
- heuristic evaluations of end user programming environments
- ethnographical studies on end user programming
