The Fourth Workshop on End-User Software Engineering is a one-day workshop intended to focus on the challenges faced in helping end users create dependable software. The proposed workshop aims to bring together software engineering researchers who wish to address these challenges, and is the next one planned in the series that has proven to be an invaluable forum for bringing together researchers working on this problem in disparate domains.

WEUSE IV is structured around four themes. Each of the twenty short papers accepted to the workshop has overlap with one or more of the following themes:

The workshop will consist of four session. In each session, the Session Chair will present their vision for the theme that is the focus of the session, together with a brief overview of the papers related to that theme. A period of discussion, open to the workshop attendees, will follow this presentation.

Please see the program for the detailed workshop schedule.
