MobileHCI is the leading conference in the field of Human Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services. The MobileHCI series provides a forum for academics and practitioners to discuss the challenges and potential solutions for effective interaction with mobile systems and services. It covers the design, evaluation, and application of techniques and approaches for mobile and wearable computing devices and services. MobileHCI is now on its 12th Edition.

Workshops at MobileHCI 2010 offer a chance for members of a community with common interests to meet in the context of a focused and interactive discussion. If you are working in an emerging area in MobileHCI, consider organizing a workshop. They are an opportunity to move the field forward and build community. MobileHCI workshops might address (for example) basic research, applied research, HCI practice, new methodologies, emerging application areas, design innovations, management and organizational issues, or HCI education. Each workshop should generate ideas that give the MobileHCI community a new, organized way of thinking about the topic, or ideas that suggest promising directions for future research. Some workshops result in edited books or special issues of journals; you may consider including this goal in the design of your workshop. Additionally, this year, the best paper of each workshop will appear in a special issue of the International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction (IJMHCI).

Two workshop formats will be available: half-day and full-day. Half-day workshops will be scheduled to use 3 working hours, with one break. Full-day workshops will be scheduled to use 6 working hours, with a mid-morning break, a lunch break, and a mid-afternoon break. Workshops at MobileHCI typically have 15 to 20 participants. Focused interaction among participants is important, so participants must have informed positions based on prior experience.

Workshop Proposals

Workshop proposals must include: (1) a cover sheet; (2) a proposal; and (3), a call for participation.  All three components should be submitted in one file. The combined file must be in PDF format.

Part 1. Cover Sheet
Each submission should have a cover sheet giving contact information for the primary workshop organiser. This person will serve as the main point of contact with the Workshop Chairs.

Part 2. Proposal
The proposal should not exceed 3 pages in the prescribed ACM MobileHCI2010 format (see The proposal must describe the topic, a detailed plan for conducting the workshop (before, during, and after), and the organisers' backgrounds. This proposal will be reviewed by the Workshops review committee.

Part 3. Call for Participation
Prepare a 250-word Call for Participation suitable for publication on the MobileHCI2010 web site. It should describe the format and goals of the workshop, the participant selection criteria, requirements for papers (e.g., page length, topics to address, etc), where these papers should be submitted, and the fact that at least one author of accepted papers needs to register for the workshop and for the conference itself. Organisers are encouraged to develop an external web page with additional information about the workshop for potential participants.

Review criteria for workshop proposals include: the workshop's potential for generating stimulating discussions and useful results; the expected community interest level in the topic; the organisers' ability to demonstrate in the proposal a well-organized process and plan for the workshop; the review criteria adopted for accepting workshop papers (with a peer-review process being preferred); and the overall balance of topics in the workshops program. If multiple submissions are received on the same or similar topics, the organisers may be encouraged to merge them.

The extended abstract of accepted workshop proposals will be available in the conference proceedings on digital format. They will also be placed in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide.

Accepted workshop papers (i.e., those of the workshop participants) will NOT be published in the conference proceedings nor in the ACM Digital Library.
