                          CALL FOR PAPERS

                            IS-EUD 2013

         International Symposium on End-User Development

                         June 11-13, 2013
               IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark



Now more than ever users can create their own software in contexts
chosen by themselves, at work, in education, for leisure, etc., by
techniques such as modding, mashing, and tailoring. Spreadsheets,
databases, web mash-ups, as well as content management systems and
software products like ERP systems provide tools for End-User
Development (EUD). The users of these tools are non-professional
software developers, who create, modify and extend a software

The International Symposium on End User Development (IS-EUD)
series is the main forum for reporting research in EUD. The next
conference will be held at the IT University in Copenhagen,
Denmark, June 11-13, 2013. It is a meeting point for researchers
with an interdisciplinary interest, including: Human-Computer
Interaction, Software Engineering, Computer Supported Cooperative
Work, Artificial Intelligence, and related areas.

Among the challenges facing EUD are:

* Software process: End users often lack education in software
  development, in particular software project management and
  program verification; in these contexts users must tackle the
  challenges faced by professional software developers.
  Researchers have begun to develop tools for end users to help
  them reduce costly errors.

* Multidisciplinary cooperation: Cooperation between users,
  end-user developers and software engineers are crucial to inform
  design-time variation and use-time evolution of software in the
  user organization as well as for changing work practices. EUD
  research includes studies of organizational end-user tailoring
  to identify the cooperation and sharing around the evolution of
  software products and organizational IT-infrastructures.

* Use-orientation technologies: Technical design is required for
  orchestrating evolution of the basic software, customizations
  and configurations. Technical design approaches like
  component-based design, aspect oriented programming, or domain
  specific languages are promising starting points, but they need
  to be further developed to accommodate the needs of
  organizational end-user development.

We invite participation within the above themes as well as
addressing related challenges in the following submission

Long and short papers

Two different types of paper submissions are invited:

1) long papers, up to 16 pages, reporting research or
   design experience, and
2) short papers, up to 6 pages, describing work in progress or
   tool demonstrations.

Authors can submit and update submissions through the EasyChair
system until January 11, 2013. Papers must be formatted according
to Springer LNCS style. Three members of the Program Committee
will review each submission. Some long papers may be suggested
turned into short papers. Accepted papers (both long and short)
will appear in the proceedings, published by Springer as Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).


Workshops will give participants the opportunities to share
experiences, establish common understanding on shared topics, and
identify open problems and rising challenges promoting future
research on End-User Development. Workshops should be planned as a
one-day event. Workshop proposals have to be submitted in PDF
format and must contain:

1) Title of the workshop and short description of its topic,
   motivations, goals.
2) Name, institution, email address, and short bio for all the
3) Detailed plan for workshop publicity, potential attendees,
   potential program committee, method for papers selection,
   approximate schedule and post-workshop activities.
4) Call for Participation text (up to 600 words) that will be sent
   on mailing lists.

The proposal document must be submitted through the EasyChair system

Doctoral consortium

Current PhD students, studying an End-User Development relevant
topic, are invited to submit a 4-page description of their PhD
work to the IS-EUD Doctoral Consortium. Selected students will
have the opportunity to present their work, get constructive
feedback, and share ideas and experiences with other students and
experts in the field. Further information can be found on the
conference website.

User Evaluation Contest

Have you developed a tool or technique enabling end users to more
easily accomplish a set of tasks in a commercial tool? If so, we
invite you to submit a proposal to have your technique or tool
evaluated in the User Evaluation Contest at EUD 2013! A program
committee of industry practitioners and industry researchers will
evaluate your tool or technique, how well it meets the usability
needs of its users. Your submission will describe a set of user
tasks that will show off the functionality of your tool or
technique, along with a set of evaluation metrics necessary to
characterize the end users' performance, correctness, or cognition
on these tasks. Send proposals to the EUD user evaluation contest
