Are you working in an emerging area in MobileHCI? Please consider
organizing a workshop! Workshops allow members of a community to meet
in the context of a focused and interactive discussion. Arranging a
workshop is an opportunity to move the field forward and to build a
community. MobileHCI workshops might address 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 such a goal in the design of your workshop.
Workshops will be held on August 27, 2013. Two workshop formats will
be available: half-day and full-day. Half-day workshops should be
scheduled to use 3 working hours, with one break. Full-day workshops
should be scheduled to use 6 working hours, with a mid-morning break,
a lunch break, and a mid-afternoon break. Workshops typically have 15
to 20 participants. Focused interaction among participants is
important. Participants must have informed positions based on prior
Preparing the Submission
Workshop organizers submit a workshop proposal to the MobileHCI
conference. Proposals undergo a review process. Accepted workshops

announcements on relevant mailing lists and using social media).
The submission deadline for workshop proposals is February 24, 2013
Proposals should be submitted using Precision Conference.
