First Call for Papers

1st International Workshop on Mobile Work Efficiency:
Enhancing Workflows with Mobile Devices

To be held during the 13th International Conference on Human-Computer 
Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services:
MobileHCI 2011, 30 August 2011, Stockholm, Sweden

This workshop will be a forum of multi-disciplinary discussion on how 
mobile devices can increase perceived work efficiency, as well as how 
this subjective enhancement can be measured.

Submissions are invited on the following topics:

* Research on how mobile devices can increase perceived work efficiency
* Contextual analysis, evaluation methods and tools how to measure 
perceived work efficiency with mobile devices
* Persuasive strategies of how to foster perceived work efficiency
* Future mobile devices (e.g. wearable displays) and interaction 
approaches to enhance perceived work efficiency
* Creating a common understanding and perspective of the challenges 
related to perceived work efficiency and mobile devices in various 
contexts (e.g. office, factory)
* Propose perspectives on how to address these challenges in future 
research and development of interactive systems

The one-day workshop will include presentation of each participant’s 
contribution, break-out sessions on specific sub-topics, and concludes 
with a group discussion.

We will select participants with academic and industrial backgrounds 
based upon the relevance, insightfulness, and originality of their 
submissions by a peer reviewing process.

Submissions are expected in the form of position papers (Mobile HCI 
Extended Abstracts format, max 4 pages), describing the area of 
research, specific work (empirical or theoretical) on the workshop 
topic, and the innovative character of their research.

Submissions can be made by email to
