          International Symposium on End-User Development

 Now more than ever users can create their own software in contexts
 chosen by themselves, at work, in education, for leisure, etc., by
 techniques such as modding, mashing, and tailoring. Spreadsheets,
 databases, web mash-ups, as well as content management systems and
 software products like ERP systems provide tools for End-User
 Development (EUD). The users of these tools are non-professional
 software developers, who create, modify and extend a software

 The International Symposium on End User Development (IS-EUD)
 series is the main forum for reporting research in EUD. The next
 conference will be held at the IT University in Copenhagen,
 Denmark, June 11-13, 2013. It is a meeting point for researchers
 with an interdisciplinary interest, including: Human-Computer
 Interaction, Software Engineering, Computer Supported Cooperative
 Work, Artificial Intelligence, and related areas.

 Among the challenges facing EUD are:

 * Software process: End users often lack education in software
   development, in particular software project management and
   program verification; in these contexts users must tackle the
   challenges faced by professional software developers.
   Researchers have begun to develop tools for end users to help
   them reduce costly errors.

 * Multidisciplinary cooperation: Cooperation between users,
   end-user developers and software engineers are crucial to inform
   design-time variation and use-time evolution of software in the
   user organization as well as for changing work practices. EUD
   research includes studies of organizational end-user tailoring
   to identify the cooperation and sharing around the evolution of
   software products and organizational IT-infrastructures.

 * Use-orientation technologies: Technical design is required for
   orchestrating evolution of the basic software, customizations
   and configurations. Technical design approaches like
   component-based design, aspect oriented programming, or domain
   specific languages are promising starting points, but they need
   to be further developed to accommodate the needs of
   organizational end-user development.

 We invite participation within the above themes as well as
 addressing related challenges in the following submission

 Long and short papers

 Two different types of paper submissions are invited:

 1) long papers, up to 16 pages, reporting research or
    design experience, and
 2) short papers, up to 6 pages, describing work in progress or
    tool demonstrations.

 Authors can submit and update submissions through the EasyChair
 system until January 11, 2013. Papers must be formatted according
 to Springer LNCS style. Three members of the Program Committee
 will review each submission. Some long papers may be suggested
 turned into short papers. Accepted papers (both long and short)
 will appear in the proceedings, published by Springer as Lecture
 Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).


 Workshops will give participants the opportunities to share
 experiences, establish common understanding on shared topics, and
 identify open problems and rising challenges promoting future
 research on End-User Development. Workshops should be planned as a
 one-day event. Workshop proposals have to be submitted in PDF
 format and must contain:

 1) Title of the workshop and short description of its topic,
    motivations, goals.
 2) Name, institution, email address, and short bio for all the
 3) Detailed plan for workshop publicity, potential attendees,
    potential program committee, method for papers selection,
    approximate schedule and post-workshop activities.
 4) Call for Participation text (up to 600 words) that will be sent
    on mailing lists.

 The proposal document must be submitted through the EasyChair system

 Doctoral consortium

 Current PhD students, studying an End-User Development relevant
 topic, are invited to submit a 4-page description of their PhD
 work to the IS-EUD Doctoral Consortium. Selected students will
 have the opportunity to present their work, get constructive
 feedback, and share ideas and experiences with other students and
 experts in the field. Further information can be found on the
 conference website.

 User Evaluation Contest

 Have you developed a tool or technique enabling end users to more
 easily accomplish a set of tasks in a commercial tool? If so, we
 invite you to submit a proposal to have your technique or tool
 evaluated in the User Evaluation Contest at EUD 2013! A program
 committee of industry practitioners and industry researchers will
 evaluate your tool or technique, how well it meets the usability
 needs of its users. Your submission will describe a set of user
 tasks that will show off the functionality of your tool or
 technique, along with a set of evaluation metrics necessary to
 characterize the end users' performance, correctness, or cognition
 on these tasks. Send proposals to the EUD user evaluation contest
