Artificial and/or Human Intelligence: Nurturing Computational Fluency in the Digital Age


In the Middle Ages, most people were dependent on “scribes”, who helped them to write down their thoughts, ideas, and stories, as well as to read the material written by other people. Many people today are in the same situation concerning digital media: they are unable to express themselves, explore problem spaces, and appropriate tools, and act as designers in personally meaningful activities. They must rely on “high-tech scribes”. The workshop will explore new conceptual frameworks and innovative computational environments for supporting computational fluency allowing people to become independent of “high-tech scribes”.

Cyber Security Education for Industry and Academia


We propose the first edition of the workshop on Cyber Security Education for Industry and Academia (CSE4IA) to be co-located with the next edition of IS-EUD 2023. Cybersecurity education has become increasingly important in recent years due to the shortage of cybersecurity professionals in the international job market. To address this challenge, it is necessary to focus on three contexts and their interconnections: Industry, Academia, and Public Administration. This integration should result in the development of new education and professional training programs, as well as innovative teaching tools that can effectively train end-users (students and professionals) to handle real-world scenarios. In addition, their joint work will lead to the identification of the key elements of cybersecurity education that are relevant to end-users in the context of end-user development and provide examples of practical measures that end-users can take to protect themselves and their technology solutions from cyber attacks. The aim of this workshop is to create a community for both researchers and practitioners to discuss new ideas and present new research contributions on cybersecurity education.

Empowering People in Dealing with Internet of Things Ecosystems


Nowadays the spreading of low-cost technologies integrating sensors and actuators favored the development of the so-called smart objects and this trend has been fostered by the Internet of Things (IoT), which creates a bridge between the physical and the digital world thanks to ubiquitous, connected sensors and actuators. The opportunities offered by the IoT are amplified by the use of new approaches that, based on novel interaction paradigms, involve directly non-technical users in configuring the behavior of their smart objects. End User Development (EUD) is defined as a set of methods, techniques, and tools that allow users of software systems, who are acting as non-professional software developers, to create, modify, or extend a software artifact. To support EUD of IoT applications, we have to consider that only end users can know the most appropriate ways their applications should react to contextual events. Thus, to reach a broad variety of users, tailoring environments should offer an easy-to-learn User Interface (UI), while allowing users to attain high value and even complexity of the software they create or customize. In this way, it will be possible to obtain faster tailoring, better control over the application functionality, and improved user experience. Given the diffusion and the importance of these issues, this workshop will provide a venue for discussing ongoing research and sharing ideas for researchers and practitioners working on solutions to personalize the behavior of IoT ecosystems.
