Second call for papers -
Workshop on Multimodal Location Based Techniques for Extreme Navigation
Workshop in conjunction with Pervasive 2010 Helsinki Finland
Monday 17th May 2010
and twitter as extremenav10

Submission deadline 15th March 2010

Accepted authors may submit extended versions for inclusion in a special issues of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing to appear in 2010.

Location-based data and services for geographical and navigational information (such as electronic maps and gps directions), are usually presented using visual displays. With the increasing complexity of information, and the variety of contexts of use, it becomes important to consider how other non-visual sensory channels, such as audition and touch, can be used to communicate necessary and timely information to users. Activities such as running, rock-climbing and cycling, are all examples of activities where navigational and geographical information may be needed, but where the visual modality is unsuitable. Additionally, there are a number of user groups such as visually impaired people and the emergency services, who also require non-visual access to geo-data. This workshop will provide a forum for sharing  research ideas and findings about new interaction and perceptualization metaphors, novel application contexts, multimodal and context-aware technologies for mobility -- thereby creating a solid foundation for further exploration of pervasive extreme navigation.

Topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

Sensing and applying user context to navigation and wayfinding
Multimodal techniques to augment visual map displays
Multimodal navigation systems for extreme sports
Multimodal navigation systems for runners
Multimodal systems for rescue workers
Navigation systems for "eyes-busy" activities
Wearable technology and textiles for navigation
Environmental awareness for Disabilities and Visual Impairment.
User requirements capture/user involvement for non visual design

Submission details
Submissions of either position papers or demo abstracts covering the topics of the workshop should be submitted by 15 March 2010.

4 page position papers or 2 page demo abstracts should be submitted in ACM format ( as camera ready pdf files.

At least one author from each  submission is expected to register and attend the workshop.

Accepted authors will be invited to submit extended versions of their work for inclusion in a special edition of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing to appear in 2010.

Submissions or other queries should be mailed to Charlotte Magnusson ([log in to unmask]) or David McGookin ([log in to unmask])
