Third International Symposium on End-User Development (IS-EUD 2011)
Torre Canne, Brindisi, Italy, June 7-10 2011


End-User Development (EUD) offers lightweight, use-time support which allows end
users to configure, adapt and evolve software themselves. As organizations and
work practices vary widely and evolve rapidly, the technological infrastructure
has to permit and even support these changes. Traditional Software Engineering
approaches reach their limits whenever the full spectrum of user requirements
cannot be anticipated or the frequency of changes cannot be accommodated by
traditional processes. EUD refers to a set of methods, techniques, and tools
that allow users acting as non-professional software developers to create,
modify or extend a software artifact.

The deployment of Web 2.0 technologies resulted in the exponential growth of the
number of end-user developers compared to the number of software professionals.
The increasing importance of 'infrastructural' aspects of software, particularly
the mutual dependencies between technologies, usages, and domain competencies,
calls for a differentiation of roles beyond the classical user-designer

The International Symposium on EUD brings together researchers and practitioners
from industry and academia working in the field of EUD. While programming
activities by non-professional actors are an essential focus, EUD also
investigates into related activities within the process of developing a software
infrastructure, e.g. the collective understanding and sense-making of use
problems and solution alternatives, the interactions among end users around new
configurations, and delegation patterns that may also partly involve
professional designers. To this end, EUD brings together threads of discussion
from disciplines like Human-Computer Interaction, Software Engineering, Computer
Supported Cooperative Work, Artificial Intelligence. Concepts such as
configurability, tailorability, end-user programming, visual programming,
natural programming, and programming by example already form a fruitful base,
but need to be better integrated to exploit the synergy among them.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of original unpublished work in all
areas related to EUD. Long papers may address work on cognitive and design
aspects, underlying theories, formal methods, taxonomies, implementation
efforts, tool support, and empirical studies. Short papers that present work in
progress or demonstrations of tools are also solicited.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Requirements for EUD
* User Interfaces for EUD
* EUD for specific types of devices
* EUD in specific fields of application
* EUD for user groups with specific needs
* Architectures for EUD
* Metaphors and patterns for software modularization supporting EUD
* Deployment of Web 2.0 technologies, Mash-ups
* Empirical studies of EUD practices
* EUD as part of software infrastructure development and evolution
* Support for collaboration among non-professional programmers
* Cooperation between EUD and professional software developers
* EUD and Open Source
* Educational concepts to foster EUD
* Micro-economical effects of EUD
* Macro-economical impact of EUD
* Business models for EUD solutions
* Political implications of EUD
* Cultures of Participation and Meta-design

We invite two different types of paper submissions:
(a) long papers, up to sixteen pages, reporting on research or experience;
(b) short papers, up to six pages, describing work in progress or tool

Paper submission deadline is January 5, 2011.
To aid in reviewer assignments, we also request that prospective authors submit
titles and abstracts by December 17, 2010.
Papers must be formatted in Springer LNCS format and must be submitted
electronically. All submissions will be reviewed by members of the international
Program Committee. Accepted papers (both long and short) will appear in the
proceedings of IS-EUD 2011, published by Springer as Lecture Notes on Computer
Science (LNCS). Short papers will be presented at the conference as poster or
live demo in a specific session.

Workshops complement the scientific program. They provide an informal setting
where participants have the opportunity to discuss specific topics in an
atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas in the area of EUD.
Workshops will be held on June 7, 2011.
Workshop proposals should be sent to the Workshop Co-Chairs Anne Marie Kanstrup
( and Anders Mørch ( by
January 26, 2011. The acceptance notification will be sent by February 9, 2011.

The IS-EUD Doctoral Consortium is intended to bring together PhD students
working on theory and application of EUD. To provide fruitful feedback and
advice to the selected Ph.D. students on their research thesis. We particularly
encourage students that are somewhere in the middle of their research to submit
to this workshop. Applications to the Doctoral Consortium (up to 4 pages) should
be sent to the Doctoral Consortium Co-Chairs Daniela Fogli (
and Elisa Giaccardi ( by January 5, 2011. The acceptance
notification will be sent by February 28, 2011.

Paper abstracts: December 17, 2010
Paper and Doctoral Consortium submission: January 5, 2011
Acceptance notification: February 28, 2011
Camera-ready of accepted contributions: March 14, 2011

The Symposium will take place at the Hotel del Levante, Torre Canne (Brindisi),
a seaside resort located on the lovely Adriatic Coast of the Apulia region, in
South-East Italy.
