                       Call for Papers                           ******                    Smarttention, Please!       Intelligent Attention Management on Mobile Devices                           ******          Workshop in conjunction with MobileHCI 2015            Copenhagen, Denmark - August 24, 2015     ****************************************************************
Workshop Theme and Goals------------------------Smart phones, smart watches, smart glasses, smart TVs and a number of other 'smart' devices have put an abundance of online content and services into our fingertips. Today, many users of mobile devices are continuously confronted with a huge variety of information: notifications from Facebook, new application updates, won badges, or reminders. This leads to an information overload, which makes it hard to stay focused.
The goal of this workshop is to discuss how information overload through mobile notifications affect the users' experiences, and how artificial intelligence, adaptive user interfaces or clever, multimodal interaction techniques can help users to focus on the most essential information. Further, we want to discuss meta-aspects of these smart attention management systems, for example, how they can be configured, trusted or how their dynamics can be communicated to the users. We welcome contributions for single- and multi-device environments.
Topics------Topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:
* Understanding mobile information needs, mobile notifications, mobile attention behaviour* Detection/prediction of availability and attention* Detection/prediction of information perception, information overload* Multimodal interaction with focus on attention optimization* Interaction across devices, multi-device interaction* Context-adaptive or context-aware user interfaces* Infrastructures, frameworks and tools for the development of smart attention systems
Submission details------------------A paper should have a length of 2 to 6 pages in the MobileHCI 2015 Extended Abstracts format and will be reviewed by at least two workshop organizers. Successful submissions will have the potential to raise discussion, provide insights for other attendees, and illustrate open challenges and potential solutions. All accepted publications will be published on the workshop website and in the ACM Digital Library. At least one author of each accepted paper needs to register for the conference and the workshop itself. During the workshop, each paper will be given about 10 minutes for an oral presentation. In addition, there will be room for demonstrations and hands-on sessions.
Submissions or any questions should be mailed to Benjamin Poppinga([log in to unmask]). More details can be found on the workshop website:
