The purpose of the symposia on Empirical Foundations of Information and Software Sciences (EFISS) is to explore subjects and methods of scientific inquiry which are of common interest to these two disciplines, and to identify directions of inquiry that will benefit from their mutual interaction. Authors contributing papers to the symposia are at liberty to address any aspect of the empirical foundations such as measurement theory and techniques in information and software sciences, methods of experimental design, empirical laws and theories, validation and verification of empirical laws, requirements for data bases to support experimentation, and evaluation of software properties. But over and above that, each symposium has a main theme to focus on. The main theme of this Fourth Symposium of Empirical Foundations of Information and Software Sciences was Empirical Methods of Evaluation of Human-Machine Interfaces.
