Call for Late Breaking Results, Demonstrations, Doctoral Consortium, 
Tutorials and Workshops - EICS 2014


EICS 2014 - The 6th ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive
Computing Systems
17-20 June 2014
Rome, Italy


EICS is the sixth international conference devoted to the engineering of
usable and effective interactive computing systems. Systems of interest
will include traditional workstation-based interactive systems, new and
emerging modalities (e.g. gesture), entertaining applications (e.g.
mobile and ubiquitous games) and development methods (e.g. extreme

EICS focuses on methods, techniques and tools that support designing and
developing interactive systems. The Conference brings together people
who study or practice the engineering of interactive systems, drawing
from HCI, Software Engineering, Requirements Engineering, CSCW,
Ubiquitous / Pervasive Systems and Game Development communities.

The conference proceedings are published by the ACM and appear in the
ACM Digital Library.

Submissions are invited that address some aspect of the engineering of
human-computer interactive systems. Topics include but are not limited to:

* Modelling interaction and interactive systems
* Processes for engineering interactive systems (e.g. design,
implementation, prototyping, evaluation, and testing)
* Integrating interaction design into the software development process
* Requirements engineering for interactive systems
* Specification of interactive systems (methods, principles and tools)
* Software architectures for interactive systems
* Frameworks, toolkits, and APIs for interactive systems (e.g. API
usability, interaction-driven API design)
* Domain-specific languages for interactive systems
* Formal methods for HCI
* Specifying and modelling users' activities
* Engineering innovative interactive applications (e.g., adaptive,
multimodal, collaborative, tangible)
* End-user development of interactive systems
* Engineering user experience (e.g., fun, affective)
* Engineering complex interactive systems (e.g., large datasets, large
communities, enterprise systems)
* Models and tools for interacting with semantic data
* User interfaces for big data
* User interface software and technologies for ambient assisted living


*Call for Late Breaking Results*

Late breaking results submissions (6 pages) should report on relevant 
research results, which are more focused and less validated than those 
reported in full papers. Accepted submissions will be presented in the 
main conference program and published in the conference proceedings. 
Based on time constraints and the nature of the contribution, accepted 
submissions will be presented as short talks or posters, all being 
published in the Proceedings as 6-page papers. It is important to note 
that late breaking results should be submitted as camera-ready papers. 
Papers must be submitted using the SIGCHI publication format:


**Call for *Demonstrations*

Demonstration submissions (4 pages) should describe how innovative 
systems work, such as a demonstration of a design or development tool or 
technique or innovative application. Demonstration submissions should 
summarize the system's significance and its performance and should 
include at least two screen shots. Accepted submissions will be 
published in the conference proceedings and their systems demonstrated 
in the conference demonstration session. Papers must be submitted using 
the SIGCHI publication format:


**Call for *Doctoral Consortium*

Doctoral Consortium submissions (4 pages) should present a PhD thesis 
topic motivated by aims and goals, supported by some work in-progress 
and that present original, sound, and advanced results in order to 
address a well-defined problem. The submission should be accompanied 
with a free-form CV of the PhD candidate. Accepted submissions will be 
presented during a special session dedicated to the Doctoral Consortium 
and authors will be invited to present a poster of their work during a 
session during the main conference. Contributions must be submitted 
using the SIGCHI publication format:


**Call for *Tutorials*

Tutorials present an opportunity for leading researchers and 
practitioners to promote relevant aspects of engineering interactive 
computing systems. They will be selected by a panel of referees and will 
be held only if they attract the required minimum number of participants.
Tutorials will be chosen on the basis of the quality of presentation and 
the value to the audience. Please note that tutorial submissions are 
open-reviewed and should not be anonymized.
