3rd Workshop on Engineering Interactive Systems with SCXML

Please apologize for potential cross-posting.

** Call for Papers
------------------------------------------------------------

3rd Workshop on Engineering Interactive Systems with SCXML In conjunction
with
EICS 2016 (http://eics-conference.org/2016/), Brussels, Belgium June 21st -
24th, 2016


** About
------------------------------------------------------------

The W3C SCXML standard (http://www.w3.org/TR/scxml/) for Harel state-charts,
in
unison with the W3C MMI architecture (http://www.w3.org/TR/mmi-arch/)
specification and related work from the W3C MMI working group are a
promising
suite of recommendations for interoperable Internet-of-Things applications
and
appliances. Either in its role as a dialog manager for multi-modal user
interfaces or as a general description for reactive systems, SCXML fills an
important void in the landscape of available W3C recommendation. This 3rd
installment of the workshop will provide a forum for academia and industry
alike to present and discuss recent developments with regard to SCXML and to
identify extensions and adaptations as part of a continued standardization
effort.


** Workshop Topics
------------------------------------------------------------

The workshop will provide a forum to discuss submissions detailing the use
of
SCXML, in particular, multi-modal dialog systems adhering to the concepts
outlined by the various W3C standards in general and related approaches of
declarative dialog modeling to engineer interactive systems.

We are interested in:

* Implementations of the standard
* SCXML development tools
* Usages in interactive systems within a web browser, on the desktop, mobile
or
  in the Internet of Things
* Applications in robotics and adjacent spaces of interactive systems
* Integration of SCXML into existing technologies, especially related W3C
  standards
* Theoretical explorations and extensions of SCXML
* Evaluations of SCXML for industrial use-cases


** Submission
------------------------------------------------------------

We invite submissions in three different formats:

* Position papers and posters (4 pages) describe a motivated opinion or
  viewpoint, identifies an open issue or important problem, or presents work
in
  progress
* Demo papers (4 pages) describe a system setup
* Full papers (6 pages) describe substantial contributions of novel ongoing
work

All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Besides based on general
contributions,
submissions will also be selected on their potential to initiate discussion.
Accepted submissions will be made available as online proceeding on our web
site. Moreover, they will be made available on our publication server to
ensure
that they can be cited. Copyright is retained by the authors thus papers can
be
submitted for other venues that allow this.


** Format
------------------------------------------------------------

All submissions have to be
1. prepared according to the HCI Archive Format
(http://chi2012.acm.org/cfp-formatting-instructions.shtml#archiveformat) and
2. submitted in PDF format through the workshop management system at
EasyChair
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=scxml2016) .
