- March 24, 2006: Deadline for preparing camera-ready copies
- May 7, 2006: PERMID 2006 workshop at Pervasive 2006

Mobile devices have become a pervasive part of our everyday lives. People
have mobile phones, smartphones and PDAs which they take with them almost
everywhere. So far these mobile devices have been mostly used for phone
calls, writing short messages and organizer functionalities. Today we see
that the development of context-aware services for mobile phones which often
take the user, her situation and location into account.
But why not use these devices for interactions with the real world, as a
mediator between the virtual and the userís world? While certain research
domains within the fields of mobile applications and services advance at an
amazing speed (e.g. context-aware services on mobile devices, using sensors
in mobile phones), the areas of pervasive mobile user interfaces, mobile
devices as interaction devices, mobile devices for interactions with the
physical world and user experiences in this field are still rather limited.

Possible topics for the workshop include (but are not limited to):
- Interactions between mobile devices and the real world
- Using mobile devices as user interfaces for terminals and vending machines
- Interaction metaphors for pervasive applications and services
- Multimodal interaction taking mobile devices into account
- Usage of sensors in mobile devices (camera, microphone, GPS, etc.) for
pervasive applications
- Augmented, virtual and mixed reality on mobile phones and PDAs (tracking,
markers, visualisation)
- Portable music players (e.g. iPod Video) and personal servers as mobile
interaction devices
- Interactive context-aware services on mobile devices
- Gathering, management and usage of context information
- User experience, user studies
- Applications and scenarios

The main goal of the workshop is to develop an understanding of how mobile
devices (particularly mobile phones, smartphones and PDAs) can be used as
interaction devices. We will provide a forum to share information, results,
and ideas on current research in this area. Furthermore we aim to develop
new ideas on how mobile phones can be exploited for new forms of interaction
with the environment. We will bring together researchers and practitioners
who are concerned with design, development, and implementation of new
applications and services using personal mobile devices as user interfaces.

Workshop Format
The workshop will feature presentation of research results, ongoing work,
ideas, concepts and critical questions related to the use of mobile devices
as user interfaces in the real world. Every presentation will be followed by
a corresponding discussion. Furthermore we invite the presenters to show
their demonstrators during their presentation and in the breaks.

Participation & Process
The number of participants should be limited to 25 people. Prospective
authors are invited to submit their contribution, in PDF format conform to
the Austrian Computer Society (OCG) style guide, electronically to
Enrico.Rukzio (at) no later than February 10, 2006. The
organizers will select circa 10 short papers for presentation at the
workshop. It is currently planned to have one printed proceedings volume for
all Pervasive 2006 workshops. Papers should have a length of about 6 pages.

Permid 2006 will provide printed and online proceedings. As it was done for
Permid 2005 we will register the current workshop in the DBLP Bibliography
(see entry of Permid 2005 in DBLP). Furthermore it is planed by the
organizers of Pervasive 2006 that workshop proceedings are published by the
Austrian Computer Society. Permid 2006 is supported by the Human Technology
journal that will publish selected papers of the workshop in a special issue.

PERMID 2006 will be held in conjunction with the 4th International
Conference on Pervasive Computing (PERVASIVE 2006) in Dublin, Ireland. For
more information about the main conference, refer to The actual workshop will take place on May
7th 2006 in the Burlington Hotel Dublin.
