ACM International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services 2015 (MobileHCI)
Copenhagen, Denmark, August 24-27 2015
*About Mobile HCI 2015*
MobileHCI 2015 is the premier forum for innovations in mobile, portable and personal devices and with the services to which they enable access. There are a number of ways for you to participate in MobileHCI 2015, either by making a submission or simply attending. MobileHCI brings together people from diverse areas which 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. MobileHCI maintains a small number of tracks along with a wide range of other program aspects to encourage the exchange of research results, ideas and future research endeavours.
Proposal Submission Deadline: February 13th 2015, 5pm PST
Paper Notification: March 10th 2015

Workshop Day: August 24th 2015
Are you working in an emerging area in MobileHCI? 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 24th 2015. 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 experience.
Workshop organizers submit a workshop proposal to the MobileHCI conference. Proposals undergo a review process. Accepted workshops will be publicized on the MobileHCI website. Workshop organizers will be expected to recruit workshop participants (e.g., through announcements on relevant mailing lists and using social media).
The submission deadline for workshop proposals is February 6th 2015.
A workshop proposal submission consists of a single PDF file in the MobileHCI 2015 Extended Abstracts Format. This document must contain four sections: a cover sheet, a proposal, a description of the workshop, and a call for participation. Please see http://mobilehci.acm.org/2015/calls_workshops.html for more details.

*Responsibility of Workshop Organizers*
Please keep the following responsibilities in mind when submitting a workshop proposal:
- Publicize their workshop: organizers of an accepted workshop are encouraged to set up and maintain locally a web page in which they provide further and updated information about their workshop. The local page of the workshop will be reachable from the official MobileHCI workshop site.
- Solicit papers from potential participants: A workshop paper is generally 2-4 pages long and outlines the submitter's view on the workshop theme and the reasons for the submitter's interest in the topic.
- Select participants on the basis of papers submitted to them.
- Distribute papers and other pre-workshop materials to participants in advance of the workshop.
- Develop a final agenda of workshop activities.
At the workshop, the organizer is responsible for facilitating discussion, maintaining productive interaction, and encouraging participation. The emphasis should be on group discussion, rather than on presentation of individual papers. Diversity of perspectives should be encouraged.
We will provide the following A/V equipment: projector, screen, 1 flip chart, 1 set of pens, and adhesive for attaching flip chart pages to walls without leaving marks. Regarding wireless availability, network connectivity is available in the facility.
