Call for Participation:
MobileHCI 2009 Workshop on Context-Aware Mobile Media and Mobile Social
Networks, September 15th 2009, Bonn, Germany

Extended Submission Deadline: 15th May 2009 !!

Scope of the Workshop:

Context-awareness is becoming an important feature of mobile technology, and
with advances in technology development, new application and service
concepts are being developed and demonstrated in an ever-increasing manner.
Although the most typical examples of context-awareness are still concepts
that concentrate on an individual user and his/her interaction with the
device, context-awareness also has great potential in enhancing social
networks, and facilitating collaboration and other social interactions.
Moreover, social networks can also be exploited as contextual information
source. This workshop invites submissions on HCI aspects of context-aware
mobile technology and social networks. The workshop aims to bring together
researchers and practitioners to present their insights and research on new
concepts, interaction design for mobile context-awareness, usability
challenges, collaborative context-aware services and applications for
supporting social network and other topics related to HCI with mobile
context-aware technology.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    * Novel mobile application and service concepts that utilize information
about, or facilitate the awareness of, a social network and its state
    * Novel application and service concepts related to context-aware mobile
media that involve interaction between people
    * User studies on social context-aware mobile applications
    * Studies on the usability and interaction design of context-aware
multimedia applications
    * Privacy and other social aspects of context-aware mobile applications
    * Mobile application concepts that utilized distributed

The social networks that are utilized can consist of various different kinds
of social groups – for instance family, colleagues, currently present
people, or a virtual community. As the workshop is targeted to MobileHCI
community, the submissions should highlight HCI related perspective rather
than technical aspects.


Submissions with the maximum length of 3 pages in ACM format should be sent
to [log in to unmask] by the 4th of May 2009, as a pdf file. The
submissions will be reviewed by the workshop organizers. In addition to
presentations based on the submissions, the workshop provides a forum for
active discussions and an opportunity to present demonstrators.

Important Dates:

    * Submission deadline: May 15, 2009
    * Acceptance notification: May 18, 2009
    * Camera-ready submission deadline: June 18, 2009
