Call for Participation
This workshop brings together software engineering researchers and practitioners who have a research project, concept and/or tool they would like to evaluate with users. In this highly interactive workshop, attendees will collaboratively design, develop, and pilot plans for conducting user evaluations of their projects. Attendees will gain practical experience with user evaluation methods through scaffolded group exercises, group discussions, and mentoring by a panel of user-focused software engineering researchers. Together, we will establish a community of like-minded researchers and developers to help one another improve our research and practice through user evaluation.
We invite interested participants to submit a 2 to 4 page proposal describing a research project, concept and/or tool you would like to evaluate with users. The proposal should include a concise description of the research problem, a description and motivation of the intended users, an explanation of why you are interested in conducting a user evaluation, and any specific goals you may have for the workshop. If you have designed or conducted a past user evaluation, you should additionally include a description of how it went, what was learned from the study, and what lessons you personally took away from the experience.
There are two options for submitting a proposal.
1. Archival Proposals: Submit your proposal by February 17, 2012 in IEEE CS format. If accepted, it will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
2. Non-Archival Proposals: Submit your proposal by May 21, 2012 in IEEE CS format. If accepted, you may participate in the workshop, however, your proposal will not be published in the ACM Digital Library.
