*Aims and Scope of the Special Issue*

Mobile and wearable devices (e.g., smartphones, FitBit, AppleWatch) are
among the most transformative technologies that have created a rapid
worldwide impact on almost every aspect of our social and working life due
to their ubiquity, pervasiveness, and portability. The built-in (e.g.,
accelerometers, gyroscopes, and ambient lighting sensors) and external
sensors have further increased the variety of interaction possibilities,
such as gestural interaction. Mobile and wearable devices are creating new
ways of conducting business, computation, and health management, and
transforming how we communicate, interact, and entertain. There have been
countless mobile applications developed and deployed in the past few years,
which are subject to a variety of usability, accessibility, and interaction

This special issue is aimed to bring together the significant, cutting-edge
research findings and best practices in the field of mobile HCI and build a
bridge from current and emerging research to the future. It covers HCI
issues in the design, implementation, evaluation, and use of innovative
mobile, handheld, and wearable devices, techniques, and applications. The
relevant topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:

·       Usability of mobile applications and mobile user experience

·       Mobile accessibility and assistive technologies

·       Context-aware/context-sensitive mobile application design,
evaluation, and use

·       Adaptive mobile user interfaces

·       Multi-modal interaction technologies for mobile devices

·       Design, evaluation, and use of m-Health interventions or

·       Development of mobile usability guidelines

·       Mobile collocated interactions with wearables

·       Mobile learning and educational mobile HCI

·       Mobile applications in smart city environments

·       Privacy, security, trust, and ethical issues in mobile commerce

·       Emerging interaction technologies for mobile devices

·       Mobile cognition – using mobile devices to enhance human cognition

·       Acceptance and adoption of mobile and ubiquitous technologies
