End User Software Engineering: CHI'2007 Special Interest Group Meeting

Summary: End User Software Engineering:
CHI'2007 Special Interest Group Meeting
Recently, researchers have been working to bring
the benefits of rigorous software engineering meth-
odologies to end users who find themselves in pro-
gramming situations, to try to make their software
more reliable. End users create software whenever
they write, for instance, educational simulations,
spreadsheets, or dynamic e-business web applica-
tions. Unfortunately, errors are pervasive in end-
user software, and the resulting impact is some-
times enormous. This special interest group meet-
ing has three purposes: to bring the results of a
recent (February 2007) week-long "Dagstuhl" meet-
ing on end-user software engineering to interested
researchers at CHI; to incorporate attendees' ideas
and feedback into an emerging survey of the state
of this interesting new subarea; and generally to
bring together the community of researchers who
