The 15th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile
Devices and Services and takes place in *Munich, Germany* on *August 27-30,
2013*.

Conference website: http://www.mobilehci2013.org/

MobileHCI <http://www.all.mobilehci.org/> is the world's leading conference
in the field of Human Computer Interaction concerned with portable and
personal devices and with the services to which they enable access.
MobileHCI provides a multidisciplinary forum for academics, hardware and
software developers, designers and practitioners to discuss the challenges
and potential solutions for effective interaction with and through mobile
devices, applications, and services.
Venue

The conference will take place at the main building of the
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität
München (LMU) <http://www.en.uni-muenchen.de/index.html>. The largest
lecture theatre in the main building can accommodate more than 800
participants. The venue provides the perfect infrastructure for teaching
and presentations and therefore, for holding a conference. It also provides
an architecturally stimulating environment with historic buildings that can
host banquets, demos and posters. The building is located in the heart of
the city, only minutes from Munich's touristic center, the Marienplatz, and
in the Schwabing area which provides the highest density of restaurants and
pubs within the city.

About Munich

Munich is Germany's third largest city and sometimes ironically called the
northernmost city of Italy. It combines a vibrant cultural, economic and
scientific scene with a unique southern flair and a relaxed way of life.
Its beer gardens make it equally attractive in the summer as its skiing
resorts do in the winter. The nearby Alps provide endless opportunities for
outdoor endeavors at any time of the year.

Munich is one of the main science locations in Germany and Europe.
Internationally operating companies such as Siemens and BMW have research
facilities located throughout the city. It is also home to many foreign
research facilities. In addition, Munich has several Universities, the most
important one being the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
(LMU)<http://www.en.uni-muenchen.de/index.html>and the Technische
Universität München (Technical University of Munich,
TUM)<http://www.tum.de/en/homepage/>.


Overall, the research landscape in Munich is not only very wide and vivid
but also diverse. The conference date in late August also falls into
Munich's main hiking season. Various companies offer relatively cheap day
trips to hiking areas in the nearby Alps, which can be reached by bus
within 1-2 hours. This allows conference participants, to extend their stay
by a day or two and have a full day of mountaineering without even
switching hotels, and be back in Munich in time for dinner.
