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 (http://eics2015.org) , Duisburg, Germany June 23rd, 2015
*** 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 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
* 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
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

** 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=scxml2015) .
