PAPER ONE

Remote and Autonomous Studies of Mobile and Ubiquitous Applications in Real Contexts

Kasper Lřvborg Jensen (Aalborg University, Denmark)

As mobile and ubiquitous applications become increasingly complex and tightly interwoven into the fabric of everyday life it becomes more important to study them in real contexts. This paper presents a conceptual framework for remote and autonomous studies in the field and two practical tools to facilitate such studies. RECON is a remote controlled data capture tool that runs autonomously on personal mobile devices. It utilizes the sensing and processing power of the devices to capture contextual information together with general usage and application specific interaction data. GREATDANE is a tool for exploration and automated analysis of such rich datasets. The presented approach addresses some key issues of existing methods for studying applications in situ, namely cost, scalability and obtrusiveness to the user experience. Examples and experiences are given from remote and autonomous studies of two mobile and ubiquitous applications where the method and tools have been used.

PAPER TWO

Nudging the Trolley in the Supermarket: How to Deliver the Right Information to Shoppers

Peter M. Todd (Indiana University, Bloomington, USA), Yvonne Rogers (The Open University, UK), and Stephen J. Payne (University of Bath, UK)

The amount of information available to help decide what foods to buy and eat is increasing rapidly with the advent of concerns about, and data on, health impacts, environmental effects, and economic consequences. This glut of information can be overwhelming when presented within the context of a high time-pressure, low involvement activity such as supermarket shopping. How can we nudge people's food shopping behavior in desired directions through targeted delivery of appropriate information? This paper investigates whether augmented reality can deliver relevant 'instant information' that can be interpreted and acted upon in situ, enabling people to make informed choices. The challenge is to balance the need to simplify and streamline the information presented with the need to provide enough information that shoppers can adjust their behavior toward meeting their goals. This paper discusses some of the challenges involved in designing such information displays and indicate some possible ways to meet those challenges.

PAPER THREE

Speech for Content Creation

Joseph Polifroni (Nokia Research Center, USA), Imre Kiss (Nokia Research Center, USA), and Stephanie Seneff (MIT CSAIL, USA)

This paper proposes a paradigm for using speech to interact with computers, one that complements and extends traditional spoken dialogue systems: speech for content creation. The literature in automatic speech recognition (ASR), natural language processing (NLP), sentiment detection, and opinion mining is surveyed to argue that the time has come to use mobile devices to create content on-the-fly. Recent work in user modelling and recommender systems is examined to support the claim that using speech in this way can result in a useful interface to uniquely personalizable data. A data collection effort recently undertaken to help build a prototype system for spoken restaurant reviews is discussed. This vision critically depends on mobile technology, for enabling the creation of the content and for providing ancillary data to make its processing more relevant to individual users. This type of system can be of use where only limited speech processing is possible.

PAPER FOUR

3D Talking-Head Interface to Voice-Interactive Services on Mobile Phones

Jiri Danihelka (Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic), Roman Hak (Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic), Lukas Kencl (Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic), and Jiri Zara (Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic)

This paper presents a novel framework for easy creation of interactive, platform-independent voice-services with an animated 3D talking-head interface, on mobile phones. The Framework supports automated multi-modal interaction using speech and 3D graphics. The difficulty of synchronizing the audio stream to the animation is examined and alternatives for distributed network control of the animation and application logic is discussed. The ability of modern mobile devices to handle such applications is documented and it is shown that the power consumption trade-off of rendering on the mobile phone versus streaming from the server favors the phone. The presented tools will empower developers and researchers in future research and usability studies in the area of mobile talking-head applications (Figure 1). These may be used for example in entertainment, commerce, health care or education.

PAPER FIVE

feelabuzz: Direct Tactile Communication with Mobile Phones

Christian Leichsenring (Bielefeld University, Germany), René Tünnermann (Bielefeld University, Germany), and Thomas Hermann (Bielefeld University, Germany)

Touch can create a feeling of intimacy and connectedness. This work proposes feelabuzz, a system to transmit movements of one mobile phone to the vibration actuator of another one. This is done in a direct, non-abstract way, without the use of pattern recognition techniques in order not to destroy the feel for the other. The tactile channel enables direct communication, i. e. what another person explicitly signals, as well as implicit context communication, the complex movements any activity consists of or even those that are produced by the environment. This paper explores the potential of this approach, presents the mapping use and discusses further possible development beyond the existing prototype to enable a large-scale user study.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Mission of IJMHCI:

The primary objective of the International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction (JMHCI) is to provide comprehensive coverage and understanding of the issues associated with the design, evaluation, and use of mobile technologies. This journal focuses on human-computer interaction related to the innovation and research in the design, evaluation, and use of innovative handheld, mobile, and wearable technologies in order to broaden the overall body of knowledge regarding such issues. IJMHCI also considers issues associated with the social and/or organizational impacts of such technologies.

Coverage of IJMHCI:

Topics to be discussed in this journal include (but are limited to) the following:

Case studies and/or reflections on experience (e.g. descriptions of successful mobile user interfaces, evaluation set-ups, etc.)
