Workshop on KINECTing MobileHCI
at MobileHCI 2012

Markus Löchtefeld, Lauren Norrie, Sven Gehring, Roderick Murray-Smith &
Michael Rohs

San Francisco, US
Spetember 21th 2012

=== TOPIC ===

The Microsoft Kinect provides a cheap and robust depth sensor as an
off-the-shelf-product that opens a rich design space for mobile HCI
researchers. Tracking a user's body motion, pose and the position of each
limb is now possible this can help to create new interaction as well as
evaluation methods. The workshop on KINECTing Mobile Human Computer
Interaction is meant to explore how mobile devices and mobile interaction
can be enhanced through the capabilities of the Microsoft Kinect as well as
new experiences and Kinect-augmented services for mobile devices that
emerge from this new technology.

Besides a strong relation to the Kinect, topics of interest include but are
not limited to:

• Novel interaction techniques
• Spatial and proximity based interaction
• Ad-hoc created situated spaces
• Advanced mobile hardware prototypes
• Whole-Body Interaction in mobile contexts
• Advanced services based on position data of the Kinect
• Evaluation and documentation of mobile usability using the Kinect

We want to use the workshop as a starting point to discuss possible formats
and platforms for exchanging skeletal data captured during mobile usability
evaluations. The goal is to set a new standard for reproducible evaluation
techniques in mobile settings.

=== Workshop Format and Submissions ===

The workshop on KINECTing MobileHCI is a full-day workshop with an extended
thematic scope and aims to bring together researchers and practitioners
from academia and industry with multidisciplinary insights being explicitly
encouraged. We ask for papers (two-pages position-statement-paper or
four-pages research-paper) that address one or more of the research
questions mentioned above, or that describe findings that relate to these
research questions based on systems the authors have built.

We highly encourage bringing a demonstration of your prototype if available
and presenting it at the Workshop!

Papers should be formatted according to the standard HCI Archive format. (
remove the copyright notice). Papers should be submitted using the
electronic submission system available on the website (
At least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the

Each paper will be reviewed by at least two members of an international
program committee. All accepted papers will be made available online on the
workshop website
