Mobile Applications" to be presented at the ACM SIGCHI Symposium on 
Engineering Interactive Computing Systems (EICS 2011) on June 13th, 
2011, Pisa, Italy.

TUTORIAL: Designing Visual User Interfaces for Mobile Applications

PRESENTER: Luca Chittaro, University of Udine, Italy

ABSTRACT: People want to do more with their mobile phones and every day 
new mobile applications are launched in a increasingly wide number of 
domains. However, traditional UI knowledge is not sufficient to design 
effective interfaces for mobile applications because the mobility 
context presents developers with several peculiarities and new 
challenges. This tutorial will introduce participants to the design of 
visual interfaces for mobile applications. In particular, it will: (i) 
illustrate the peculiar aspects of mobile interaction that make it more 
difficult to build effectiveuser interfaces for mobile users, (ii) show 
how the powerful graphics capabilities of today’s mobile devices can be 
exploited to create interfaces that help users on the move do more with 
their phones, requiring lesstime and attention, (iii) look at recent 
developments in the engineeringof mobile UIs such as tool support for 
mobile interface development, including mobile end-user programming.
