Call for Participation: Student Design Challenge @ Mobile HCI 2017

Important Dates:
July 3rd, 2017 - Submission of papers
July 14th, 2017 –Notification

Student Design Challenge:
This is the 1st year of the Mobile CHI Student Design Challenge. It is a 
platform for students to demonstrate their skills in innovating and 
designing mobile interfaces of the future.

It has been 10 years since the first iPhone has been released on January 
9, 2007. How will mobile devices be designed in 10 years time 2027? What 
will be killer applications? Will it still be a rectangle touchscreen 
phone with a lot of sensors or will it be completely different? What 
will be its killer feature / application? We challenge students to 
envision a completely novel interface and interaction design of a mobile 
device, mobile service, mobile interaction modality, or mobile system. 
The interaction design should be implemented as a user experience 

Students are requested to submit a position paper that describes their 
design idea. Submissions should follow the ACM SIGCHI Extended abstract 
format with a maximum number of 6 pages. The submission should contain a 
150-word abstract, an introduction including motivation and design goal, 
related work, a description of the ideation method, a description of the 
user experience prototype including visualizations, and a discussion on 
the future applicability of the design.
The following criteria for the design should be considered:
* Is the interaction design idea novel and thought provoking?
* Was the user experience prototype developed far enough to demonstrate 
the key ideas?
* Was relevant prior work properly identified and cited?
* Was the position paper presented in an appropriate way?

The Student Design Challenge is aimed at meeting the following goals:
* Provide an opportunity for students from a variety of backgrounds 
(HCI, industrial design, visual design, interaction design, mobile 
design, experience design etc.) to participate in Mobile HCI and 
demonstrate their design skills in an international challenge against 
their peers.
* Provide Mobile HCI attendees with refreshing perspectives on future 
mobile interaction designs.

Student Team Requirements
* Teams must consist of at least two, but no more than four students.
* There is no limit to the number of teams that may compete from any 
given University or organization.
* However, one student cannot be part of multiple teams.
Submissions are invited from all students at all stages of their 
university careers, from undergraduate to postgraduate.

Student Design Competition submissions must be submitted until 3rd of 
July 2017 17:30 PDT via Email to

Teams will submit a non-anonymized paper (6 pages maximum) written in 
the ACM Extended Abstracts Format 
( summarizing their design 
solution and its evolution. Submissions not meeting the page limit or 
formatting requirements will be automatically disqualified. This 
document should be submitted as a single PDF.

All submissions must be in English and must include title and author 
information, including author affiliations.
Each team's position paper submission will be reviewed by both academic 
and professional design and usability experts.

Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by 14th July, 2017. 
Final versions of the submissions will be included in the electronic 
proceedings given to attendees (but will not be archived in the ACM 
Digital Library).

Presentation at Mobile HCI 2017
Upon acceptance students will be invited to present their work in a 
poster session. Their students should bring a poster and their actual 
user experience prototype. Accepted teams are expected to attend the 
conference to give a poster presentation outlining their design, and 
discuss their proposed solution with Mobile HCI attendees. Mobile HCI 
attendees will have the possibility to vote for the best design.
Each poster will have a display space for a poster following the 
International Standards Organization (ISO) poster size format (A0). The 
dimensions for A0 format are 84cm x 119cm, or approximately 33" x 47". 
Portrait orientation is required. Tables and power outlets will be 

The poster must include:
* The proposed solution's name, team name, school affiliation
* The perspective taken to address the design challenge
* A concise description of the proposed solution
* Compelling, effective visual design

The top three entries to the Student Design Challenge earn a Certificate 
of Recognition.
Winners will be announced during the closing plenary.
