********** Call for UbiComp '17 Workshop Papers **********
UbiMount - Ubiquitous Computing in the Mountains
An Ubicomp'17 Workshop - Maui, Hawaii, USA

Workshop homepage:
Conference homepage:

The 2nd "UbiMount - Ubiquitous Computing in the Mountains" workshop
builds upon the successful UbiComp'16 workshop and addresses the
challenges that arise when UbiComp technology is applied to activities
in the mountains. The ubiquity of technology in our everyday life
raises the question if and how ubiquitous computing can inform novel
technologies to support rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking,
paragliding, or skiing. These technologies can be used to guide,
monitor, track and - in case of emergency - assist users during their
adventurous activities in the mountains.

This workshop focuses on the challenge of designing UbiComp
technologies and user experiences for alpine sports. We welcome
researchers and practitioners working on wearable technologies and
sensors, user research, design cases, and prototype development
related to technology in mountaineering in general.

The one day workshop will include short presentations, a demo session
(demos that are not part of a paper are also highly encouraged) and
interactive group exercises around the mountain environments.


To apply to the workshop, submit a max. 4 page position or research
paper in SIGCHI Extended Abstract format (references will not count
towards page limit), through the Easy Chair submission system (see
workshop webpage). The submission deadline is June 9, 2017. The papers
will be reviewed by the workshop organizers and program committee.
Accepted position papers will be made available at the workshop
webpage, while accepted research papers will be included in the ACM
Digital Library and supplemental proceedings of UbiComp 2017. Upon
acceptance, at least one author of each accepted paper must attend the
workshop. All participants must register for both the workshop and for
at least one day of the conference.


The workshop welcomes submissions addressing one or more but not
limiting to the following topics:

- Design and implementation of (ambient) assistive real-time systems
- Notification design under different physical and cognitive loads
- Social acceptance of technology use in alpine activities
- Novel navigation systems, tailored for the special needs in
mountaineering or climbing
- Systems that enable disabled or impaired people to pursue outdoor activities
- Emergency or quick response systems
- Tools and methods for movement analysis
- Design and analysis of gamification components in mountaineering
- Interaction techniques for motor skills learning
- Wearable computing technologies for mountaineers


- Submission deadline for workshop papers: June 9, 2017
- Notification of acceptance: June 30, 2017
- Deadline for camera ready version: July 14, 2017
- Workshop: tba., either 11th or 12th of September, 2017
