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 artifact.
The International Symposium for 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 10-13, 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.
