Mobile Social Software: 
Realizing Potential, Managing Risks

Workshop at CHI2006, Montreal, Canada, April 22-27, 2006

http://chi2006mososo.telin.nl


WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Social software has seen a tremendous jump in usage over the past few
years and looks to take another significant leap forward as it becomes
integrated into mobile devices we carry at all times. As designers of
social software systems, we can now design for typical users who want to
?do? social computing while they are in their social environments.

The goal for this workshop is to explore the research questions, coming
directions, and relevant technologies surrounding expanded adoption of
mobile social software. We plan to address issues in the following areas
(see the workshop web page at http://chi2006mososo.telin.nl for a full
list of specific issues):

- How will mobile social software change existing social dynamics? 
- How will location services and other new technologies change the game?
What are the privacy risks and research challenges of these
technologies?
- Next generation of mobile social software: What is it and when will we
have it?
- How can we build a coordinated, cross-cultural research effort?

PARTICIPATION

This workshop seeks to bring together social and computer scientists,
designers, and other stakeholders to address research questions,
directions, and technologies involved at this critical juncture of rapid
expansion of social software to mobile devices. 

Interested participants should submit up to a 3-page position paper the
CHI Extended Abstracts format (Word/PDF) on or before Friday, 6 January
2006 to [log in to unmask] describing their background, interest,
and current projects in one or more areas related to mobile social
software. Participants will be selected to represent diverse
perspectives and the organizers are searching for positions that can
stimulate discussion.
