Second Call for participation for a Workshop on

    End User Programming for the Web

at CHI 2009 (Boston, MA, USA, April 2009)

** Deadline for Position Papers has been extended to October 31 **

In the past several years, there has been a resurgence in research 
activity in end user programming, all focused on the web. As the web has 
evolved from a set of documents to a platform for new applications, many 
researchers have created tools that allow end users, or non-programmers, 
to customize their web experiences. Users can now more easily aggregate 
information from different websites, create mobile versions of web 
pages, and automate repetitive tasks. Despite this recent growth, 
researchers in this area have yet to come together as a coherent 
community. This one-day workshop will help us assemble as a community, 
share lessons, and learn from each other.

The workshop will include group discussions about 1) visionary scenarios 
2) common research problems, 3) creating a shared corpus of evaluation 
tasks for comparing systems, 4) creating an environment for sharing 
code, and 5) planning the production of an edited book, to be published 
before CHI 2010.

Participants will be selected based on their position paper, prior 
published work in this area, and interest in writing a chapter for the 
edited book that will result from this workshop. Four-page position 
papers describing prior work, current interests, and chapter suggestions 
may be e-mailed to Allen Cypher at [log in to unmask] At least one 
author of each accepted paper needs to register for the workshop and for 
one or more days of the conference itself.

** Submission Deadline: October 31, 2008, 11:59pm PDT **
