    8th International Symposium on End-User Development

    (IS-EUD 2021): "Democratizing AI Development"

    July 6-8, 2021, Atlantica Miramare Beach Hotel 4*, Limassol, Cyprus

    End-user development (EUD) aims at empowering end users to develop and

    adapt systems at a level of complexity that is adequate to their expertise,

    practices, and skills. EUD may occur along the entire software lifecycle, with

    the purpose of making users able to participate in their artifact development,

    not only at design time, but also during actual use.

    Originally, EUD was conceived as a more general concept than end-user

    programming; thus, scholars proposed methods, techniques and tools that

    allow end users to modify or extend software artifacts, such as spreadsheets,

    web applications, video games, and mobile applications. In the co-called

    Internet of Things era, end-user development moved on to address the

    problem of defining and modifying the behavior of smart environments,

    including smart objects, pervasive displays, smart homes, smart cities, and so

    on. Therefore, the term "end-user development" acquired a broader meaning

    covering approaches, frameworks and socio-technical environments that

    allow end users to express themselves in crafting digital artifacts that

    encompass both software and hardware technology.

    Recent research and technological trends like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big

    Data, Cyber-Security, Robotics, and Industry 4.0, have contributed to renew

    the vision of end-user development, by providing tools and platforms that

    allow end users to harness the power of AI to create solutions involving

    Computer Vision, Image Processing, Conversational User Interfaces, as well as

    solutions for smart environments. Such developments lower the threshold for

    creating AI solutions, and expand the programmer base for such solutions,

    by extending AI application both for professional and discretionary use.

    IS-EUD is a bi-annual event for researchers and practitioners with an

    interdisciplinary approach to EUD, including: Human-Computer Interaction,

    Software Engineering, Computer Supported Cooperative Work, Human-Work

    Interaction Design, and related areas.

    IS-EUD 2021 Theme: Democratizing AI Development

    The 2021 edition of IS-EUD focuses on EUD for AI-based systems, where

    end users are called on to become end-user developers of intelligent agents,

    digital twins, collaborative and social robots. This edition would like to

    discuss the adoption of EUD in new fields, the proposal of novel EUD

    paradigms, and the impact of AI-based EUD in terms of user acceptability

    and appropriation. One of the most interesting topics in human-AI interaction

    is explainability of AI-based systems: research submissions presenting end-

    user oriented solutions to this problem will be particularly welcome.

    Theoretical and empirical work analyzing pros and cons of this new EUD

    wave, identifying requirements for end-user development of AI and

    acceptance of related solutions is invited. Software infrastructures and eco-

    systems supporting the reuse of solutions and the emergence of meta-

    design practices are of particular interest to this community, linking the

    challenges relating AI to topics central to the IS-EUD community.

    Conference Topics

    The conference welcomes contributions that:

    • describe new, simple and efficient environments for end-user development

    • describe new processes, methods and techniques for empowering users to

    create, modify and tailor digital artifacts

    • present case studies and design implications on challenges and practices of

    end-user development

    • develop theoretical concepts and foundations for the field of end-user


    Specific topics include (but are not limited to) the following ones:

    • User-oriented orchestration of AI-based devices

    • Conversational interfaces for end-user development

    • End-user development for big data visualization and exploration

    • End-user development for collaborative robotics

    • End-user development for social robotics

    • End-user development in Industry 4.0

    • End-user development and explainable AI-based systems

    • Cybersecurity and end-user development

    • End-user development in daily life

    • Technologies and infrastructures for end-user development

    • Empirical studies of end-user development

    • Recommender systems to support end-user development

    • Cultures of participation and meta-design approaches

    • Technology acceptance and adoption studies of end-user development technologies

    • Evaluation of end-user development technologies

    • Supporting creative work through end-user development


    We invite two types of paper submissions:

    1. Regular papers, up to 16 pages, describing original unpublished research

    making a substantial contribution to the research field

    2. 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. The review

    process for this category is double-blind, thus submissions must be

    anonymized. Accepted papers (both regular and short) will appear in the

    archival proceedings of IS-EUD 2021, published by Springer in the Lecture

    Notes on Computer Science (LNCS) series, and will be presented in plenary

    sessions of the conference.

    Workshop proposals are invited (max 6 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 and

    will be held on July 6, 2021. Accepted workshop proposals will be included

    in the IS-EUD 2021 adjunct proceedings, which will be submitted to for online publication.

    Submissions of regular papers, short papers and workshop proposals should

    indicate in the title page "Regular", "Short" or "Workshop" respectively.

    Demonstration and Work in Progress papers are also welcomed.

    A Demonstration paper (max 6 pages) should be structured according to the


    • 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)

    • References

    Work in Progress submissions (max 6 pages) 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.

    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 contributions (max 6 pages) describing the topic of their

    PhD, their approach and a summary of their progress.

    Demonstration, Work in Progress and Doctoral Consortium submissions

    should indicate in the title page “Demo”, “WiP” or “DC” respectively. Accepted

    submissions will be included in IS-EUD 2021 adjunct proceedings, which will

    be submitted to for online publication.

    Submissions of all types should be carefully formatted according to the

    Springer LNCS format:

    and should be submitted through the Easy Chair system at:
