Despite COVID-19, we keep on collecting submissions and hope that we can hold
HCSE 2020 as planned. Submission deadline is being extended to **April 9, 2020**.

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*. Stay tuned for further updates.

We express our sympathies to all of those impacted by COVID-19.

Best wishes to everybody,

Regina Bernhaupt - Carmelo Ardito - Stefan Sauer
General Conference Chairs

*HCSE 2020*

*Call for Papers*

*8th International Working Conference on Human-Centered Software Engineering*

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

*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 development

●        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*

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.
