                          CALL FOR PAPERS

International Workshop on Improved Mobile User Experience (IMUx 2007)


In conjunction with the 5th International Conference on Pervasive
Computing (Pervasive 2007)

                     Toronto, Ontario, Canada
                          May 13, 2007

Current interfaces of mobile devices are rather limited when
adaptability, context-awareness and proactiveness are considered. For
example, they do not utilize the context of the interaction, nor the
environmental changes in the user's proximity or the capabilities of the
device. This context can include information about the situation and the
user preferences, longer or shorter time usage histories, etc. To
improve usability and to provide a better user experience, the
interfaces of the devices should become more intelligent and require
less intentional user inputs.

In order to achieve this goal, novel interaction methods need to be
developed and combined with statistical models of the user that capture,
for example, her behavior, personal preferences and goals. Furthermore,
the developed solutions need to be evaluated via extensive user tests to
guarantee they are valuable to the users. To improve the dialogue
between the different research topics and their practitioners, the
workshop aims at bringing together researchers from the fields of user
modeling, user interaction and user experience, with developers of
mobile and ubiquitous applications. The ultimate goal of the workshop is
to provide a common forum for exchanging ideas between these domains.

Submissions to the workshop should combine at least two of the following

   - User modeling
   - User interaction
   - User experience

Example topics include, but are not limited to,

   - adaptive context-aware user interfaces
   - adaptive mobile computing applications
   - considerate computing
   - context-aware information retrieval
   - embedded solutions for machine learning
   - large scale data gathering and its challenges
   - large scale user studies
   - minimal/implicit/reduced user interaction


The workshop welcomes scientific papers, demonstrations and videos. The
manuscripts should be prepared according to the Springer Lecture Notes
in Computer Science guidelines

The maximum length of submissions is 10 pages for research papers and 6
pages for videos and demonstrations.

We plan to publish the accepted papers as post-proceedings.


January 26, 2007: Submission deadline
March 2, 2007: Notification of acceptance/rejection
March 12, 2007: Camera-ready paper submission deadline
May 13, 2007: Workshop date


Paper submissions are being handled by the EDAS system. You need
an EDAS account in order to be able to submit your paper.

  1. If you do not have an EDAS account, visit to create one.
  2. Log into
  3. Click on the 'submit paper' link at the top left of the page and
either locate 'IMUx 2007' from the list of conferences accepting
submissions and click on the 'new paper icon' or go to to go directly to paper
  4. Paper submission has two phases. You first need to register your
paper (title, authors, abstract and select categories that best reflect
the content of the paper). We ask you to complete the entire form as the
keywords will help us in assigning reviewers with the most appropriate
expertise to review your work. Once you hit 'submit' you are able to add
your co-authors.
  5. You can click on the 'manuscript' icon to upload the PDF version
of your paper. You can continue to upload revised versions until the
submission deadline January 26, 2007 (by 11:59PM EST).
