Social Mobile Media Workshop
Stanford University, Wallenberg Hall
August 1st, 2008
** Submission deadline extended to June 8th, 2008 **
Stanford University's H-STAR Institute (Human Sciences and Technologies Advanced Research), USA and Tampere University of Technology, Finland are organizing a research workshop for sharing findings for technical prototypes, emerging solutions, and for exploring new collaborative opportunities in the area of "Social Mobile Media."
The rapid adoption of smart phones that integrate high quality media capture devices, coupled with trends in social networking, participatory media and cyber infrastructure capabilities, provides exciting new opportunities for making mobile social media as an integral component of distributed creative environments. In addition, social applications have become a major new communication and networking method, both in entertainment and for business. We expect to see mobile social media, incorporating video, photos, and social networking and communication capabilities to be the next vital application for the mobile web.
Invitation: We invite you to submit a scientific paper (8 pages) by June 8th (extended) to this workshop. We are especially interested in empirical studies of user experiences in mobile social media environments.
Many exciting programs of research and development are underway within industry, universities, startups, and think tanks to create and study uses of social mobile media applications. In addition to several keynote talks, we are inviting presentations representing the following themes:
user experience in mobile social media creation and collaboration
mobile web 2.0
mobile video story-telling platforms
specific roles for video in mobile learning and working
theories and applications for modeling collaboration in mobile environments
emerging mobile video technologies and user interfaces (e.g., touch screen based mobile devices, mobile software development platforms)
location based mobile social media applications
If you would like to present your work in the workshop you can send your full paper to [log in to unmask] no later than June 8th, 2008. Electronic submission in PDF is required.
The workshop invites either full papers or work in progress presentations on all themes of the conference. Submitted papers will be evaluated on significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. They should clearly establish the research contribution, its relevance to research area, and its relation to prior research.
Full paper submissions to be considered for publication may be up to 8 pages (including the bibliography), in 11-point font with reasonable margins and interline spacing.
Because of the nature of the workshop we accept papers describing work in progress (WIP) as well as original papers. Here's a chance to present your latest work, new projects and developing collaborations. Presenters at the WIP session will be asked to prepare a short summary of their work (up to two pages) as well as slides.
Accepted papers will be presented at the conference in one of two formats: (1) a long oral presentation or (2) a short oral presentation coupled with placement in a poster session. Presentation format will be chosen by the program committee with the goal of encouraging breadth and diversity among oral presentations.
The workshop materials, together with a summary of discussions, will be posted to the web after the workshop, and depending on participants' interest and quality of submissions, are likely to be developed into a book for publication.
There will be no participation fee for presenters. Participation fee for others is $100.
