CfP: Engineering Interactive Systems with SCXML

Jim Barnett

Dear colleagues,

apologies for any cross-posting. We are conducting the 2nd SCXML workshop and invite you to contribute:


** Call for Papers



2nd Workshop on Engineering Interactive Systems with SCXML In conjunction with EICS 2015 ( , Duisburg, Germany June 23rd, 2015



** About



The W3C SCXML standard ( for Harel state-charts, in unison with the W3C MMI architecture ( specification and related work from the W3C MMI working group are a promising suite of recommendations to become the ``HTML of multi-modal applications''. This 2nd installment of the workshop will provide a forum for academia and industry alike to discuss recent developments with regard to dialog modeling using state-charts and identify remaining short-comings in the operationalization and application of the related approaches.



** 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 Web 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 ( and 2. submitted in PDF format through the workshop management system at EasyChair ( .



** Important Dates


* Paper Submission: April 24th, 2015

* Author Notification: May 8th, 2015

* Camera-ready Version: May 31st, 2015

* Workshop: June 23rd, 2015 (tentative)
