                         FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

                   Submission deadline: June 10, 2003
_________________________________________________________________


The ongoing migration of computing and information access from the
desktop and telephone to mobile computing devices such as PDAs, tablet
PCs, and next generation (G3) phones poses critical challenges for
research in information access and, in particular, for Information
Retrieval (IR). These devices offer limited screen size and no
keyboard or mouse, making complex graphical interfaces cumbersome. In
addition, these mobile devices will be used in situations involving
different physical and social environments and tasks, and they will
need to allow users to interact wherever he/she is and using whichever
mode or combination of modes are most appropriate given the situation,
their preferences and the task at hand. Furthermore, unlike
traditional library or office settings, users of mobile IR devices
will, typically, be subject to much higher levels of interruption and
task switching - thus needing very different interface designs.

This workshop aims to be a forum for the presentation of current
research and exchange of experiences into technological and usability
aspects of mobile information access.

Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

- information retrieval and filtering
- user modelling and personalisation
- context awareness
- new mobile devices
- nomadic computing
- ubiquitous computing
- usability
- ambient intelligence

The workshop will discuss these topics in terms of existing approaches
and implementations of information access, in terms of theoretical
foundations, and on emerging directions of research.
