The area of Engineering Interactive Computing Systems (EICS) is often defined as the intersection between Software Engineering (SE) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). In this paper, we provide an overview of what EICS is and how it is positioned with respect to other venues in HCI, such as CHI, UIST, and IUI, highlighting its legacy and paying homage to past scientific events from which EICS emerged. We also take this opportunity to deliver a critical analysis of the past, present, and perhaps future research and development questions raised in EICS. In particular, we exemplify these questions by referring to scientific contributions which have been published in this area in this last issue of PACMHCI.
