Intelligent Notification and Attention Management on Mobile Devices



    International Workshop in conjunction with MUM 2017

            Stuttgart, Germany – November 26, 2017


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 of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Understanding mobile information needs, mobile notifications, mobile 
attention behavior

* 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 position paper should have a length of 2 to 8 pages (excluding 
references) in the SIG CHI 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. 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.

Information regarding the submissions and contact details for questions 
can be found on the workshop website:
