MobileHCI 2012
Call for PANELS

-May 4th deadline-

We would like to remind you about the upcoming (May 4th) deadline for Panel
proposals to MobileHCI 2012 in San Francisco. †Do you have a topic that
would create some lively discussion at the conference? †Do you know 3-4
experts in this topic area that would like to take part?

Panels are sessions that involve significant interaction with the
conference audience. A Panel consists of an invited group of experts who
may debate or critique concepts or artifacts, enact some aspect of their
expertise, or reflect on and compare their diverse experiences. Panels
should also include involvement from the audience, often through questions
and answers, voting or critique of the expertsí presentations, and so on.
Typically, panel sessions cover the length of a paper session (i.e. 1.5
hours), however, we are open to other creative proposals, schedule

We are aiming to create panel sessions full of exciting (and sometimes
controversial) discussions. Panels that encourage debate and the inclusion
of the audience are preferred.

Proposed panels are encouraged to address one or more of the topics as
outlined in the general Call for Papers for MobileHCI 2012. An abstract (as
described below) should be submitted by May 4th, 2012 through the Precision
Conference System. Panels will be chosen from those submitted through this
process as well as additional panels suggested by the Technical Program
Committee and Panel chairs. Upon acceptance, panel organizers should
prepare the Camera-ready version of the abstract by July 8th, 2012.

Proposals must be in the MobileHCI Extended Abstract format and consist of
a 4-6 page abstract covering:

† - The topic area to be discussed and the applicability of this
† discussion for a panel session at Mobile HCI. It should highlight specific
† differences in viewpoints in the community and why a panel format is ideal
† for exploring this topic.
† - The format of the panel (e.g. will panelists each present first, for
† how long, how will the audience be engaged for the duration of the panel)
† - The moderator name, affiliation, and a short bio
† - The proposed panelistsí names, affiliations, and a short bio

Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process. All
rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted
materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the
start of the conference.

Accepted Panel abstracts will be placed in the ACM Digital Library, where
they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners
worldwide. Submission of the final camera-ready version includes and is not
complete without giving us permission to distribute your final camera-ready
version as described above. This permission is given during submitting the
final version of your work via the Conference Review System.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
