Engineering Interactive Computing Systems 

Berlin, Germany - June 19-23, 2010   

Conference Overview

download ACM EICS 2010's A4 flyers

EICS is the second 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 programming).

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

EICS’2010 encompasses the EHCI (Engineering Human Computer Interaction, sponsored by IFIP 2.7/13.4), DSV-IS (International Workshop on the Design, Specification and Verification of Interactive Systems), CADUI (International Conference on Computer-Aided Design of User Interfaces) and TAMODIA (International Workshop on Task Models and Diagrams).

Papers will be published in the ACM SIGCHI proceedings of EICS 2010 as well as 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:

  • Modeling interaction and interactive systems,
  • Engineering processes for interactive systems (e.g. design, implementation, prototyping and testing),
  • Integrating interaction design into the software development process,
  • Interactive systems specification,
  • Requirements engineering for interactive systems,
  • Software architectures for interactive systems,
  • Dynamic generation/composition of interactive systems,
  • Specifying users' activities.

Submission categories


This second edition of EICS will exhibit three scientific awards: a best paper award based on the highest rank issued by reviewers, a best presentation award based on audience voting, and a young researchers award, all sponsored by the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories. This last award will be given to researchers under the age of 35 who made a significant contribution to the field.
