Call For Papers

The 7th International Symposium on End-User Development (IS-EUD 2019)
Hertfordshire, UK (30 mins from central London)
10th-12th July, 2019

We are pleased to announce the call for papers for the 7th International Symposium on End-User Development.


Best papers will be selected for publication in a special issue dedicated to ISEUD 2019 by the International Journal of Behaviour and Information Technology.

Social Programme: There will be a tour of the Harry Potter Warner Studios taking place on Saturday 13th July. Please contact the organisation to book a place for you and your family:


The 7th International Symposium on End-User Development (IS-EUD 2019)

Software developers cannot easily anticipate idiosyncratic needs of end-users that are not always known at the time software is designed and developed, but rather emerge during use of systems and services, as this use is embedded in practice in a specific context. End-user development is a field that aims to empower end-users who are not necessarily experts in software development, to create their own software to address their specific needs. End user development is an interdisciplinary field that traditionally relates to areas such as psychology of programming, empirical studies in software engineering, human computer interaction. Technological trends like ubiquitous computing, tangible and embodied interaction, and the internet of things, have renewed the interest in end-user development for diverse audiences looking into industrial design, online communities, open innovation and crowdsourcing.

IS-EUD is a bi-annual event, that gathers researchers interested to extend our knowledge about how to design end-user development technologies and to provide scientific accounts of phenomena surrounding end-user development practices. IS-EUD cuts across application areas such as ubiquitous and wearable computing, online communities, domotics, robotics, games, etc.

IS-EUD 2019 focuses on applications of EUD in Smart Environments. Indeed, end users are called on to become end-user developers of systems that encompass a variety of software and hardware components, such as smart homes, smartphones, smartwatches, interactive displays, as well as any other interactive device available in an Internet of Things setting. One of the main application of such systems is Smart Environments that become modular systems in which humans are embedded. Also, Cloud Computing and Artificial Intelligence (AI), are enabling smart environments and promise to make them increasingly common in many parts of our lives: smart homes, transports, healthcare, smart factories and consumer products are only a few of the most talked about outcomes. In this symposium, we propose to discuss progress in research around end-user development through, or towards, methods, socio-technical environments, intelligent agents, as well as the most effective end-user programming paradigms for smart environments.


The symposium welcomes work on all areas pertaining to EUD including, but not limited to:

- End-User Development and the Intenet of Things
- End-User Development in daily life
- Technologies and infrastructures for End-User Development
- Methods and tools for End-User Development
- Case studies of End-User Development
- Crowdsourcing design and development work
- Recommender systems to support End-User Development
- Cultures of participation and meta-design approaches
- Open-ended design
- Web 2.0 and mash-up technologies enabling End-User Development
- End-User Development and robots
- End-User Development of context-dependent applications
- Technology acceptance and adoption studies
- Evaluation of End-User Development technologies
- End users as designers of interactive systems and environments

The conference welcomes contributions that:
- describe novel efficient environments for end-user development,
- describe novel processes and methods for designing open ended solutions and empowering users to cover the last mile of software development,
- present case studies and design implications on challenges and practices of end user development and user creativity
- develop theoretical concepts and foundations for the field of end-user development


We invite two different types of paper submissions:
long papers, up to 16 pages, describing original unpublished research making a substantial contribution to the research field
short papers, up to 8 pages, describing original unpublished research, making a small but solid contribution to the field
All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Accepted papers (both long and short) will appear in the archival proceedings of IS-EUD 2019, published by Springer in the Lecture Notes on Computer Science (LNCS) series, and will be presented in plenary sessions of the conference.

Work in progress submissions (max 4 pages) are also welcomed, and are intended for presenting preliminary results or tentative findings and position papers. The authors of accepted contributions will have the opportunity to give an oral presentation during parallel sessions. Accepted abstracts contributions will be published in an extended abstracts volume.

Demonstrations can be submitted in the form of an abstract (max 4 pages) describing the following:
- Abstract (150 words maximum)
- Topics to be covered and their relevance to the EUD community
- Detailed description of the planned demonstration activity
- Diagrams or screenshots (if relevant).
- Supporting documentation (e.g., project website)

High quality workshop proposals are invited (max 4 pages) aligned to the themes of the conference. Workshops provide an informal setting where participants have the opportunity to discuss specific topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. Workshops can be half day or one-day long.

Finally, the IS-EUD doctoral consortium is intended to bring together PhD students working on theory and application of EUD. We particularly encourage students that are about half-way through their doctoral research to submit doctoral consortium abstracts (max 4 pages) describing the topic of their PhD, their approach and a summary of their progress.

Papers must be carefully formatted according to the Springer LNCS format. More informaion are available on the website:
