*Proposal Submission Deadline*: July 15, 2012
*Research and Design Innovations for Mobile User Experience
A book edited by Dr. Kerem Rızvanoğlu (University of Galatasaray,
Turkey) and Dr. Görkem Çetin (Turkcell)

To be published by IGI Global:

Mobile user experience (UX) has gained momentum as a significant area of
research in recent years. The emergences of mobile human-computer
interaction (HCI) as a separate, unique field in HCI discipline with
diverse academic activities and body of literature supports this idea.
Although mobile devices allow users to stay connected anytime anywhere,
diverse user groups still suffer from usability issues caused by the design
of mobile interfaces and the limitations of mobile devices. Although the
mobile HCI community is trying to create and adapt research methods, tools,
and infrastructure for mobile-specific challenges and opportunities, there
is still a limited number of studies on mobile UX, which addresses both
researchers and professionals that work in the field of mobile HCI.
Secondly, it is not so difficult to observe that the product managers in
the sector of mobile communication often ignore usability issues and UX
processes because of time and budget limitations. However, when it comes to
delivering innovation on mobile devices, new philosophies, researches, and
approaches should be taken into consideration.

*Objective of the Book
*This book will aim to provide relevant theoretical frameworks and the
latest empirical research findings in the area. By including cutting-edge
empirical studies and live cases from the professional sector, it intends
to prepare a reference book for the mobile human-computer interaction
community that will reveal key mobile user experience issues with solid
data and guidelines and will support innovative mobile UX design processes.

*Target Audience
*The target audience of this book will be professionals and researchers
working in the field of mobile human computer interaction e.g mobile user
experience and usability and mobile interface design. Moreover, the book
will provide insights and support interaction/interface designers,
developers, product managers, UX and usability experts, digital marketing
experts and digital strategists concerned with digital product and service
