Saturday, 23rd May

We hope to encourage as many delegates as possible to stay on until the Saturday.
The intention is to provide an opportunity for discussion about the issues
and topics that were raised during the workshop.
We have, therefore, organised a day on Arran - a small Island off the West
Coast of Scotland.
Depending on the level of demand, we can arrange strenuous walks (up Goat Fell),
light walks, mountain biking, cycle tours and a vi
sit to Brodick Castle, Robert the Bruce's refuge on his passage to Ireland.
A malt whisky distillery has also recently opened on Arran and tours can be arranged.

This meeting is jointly organised by the Glasgow Interactive Systems Group, the British HCI
group and the BCS Information Retrieval Special Interest Group.

Full registration details for this First Workshop on Human Computer Interaction
with Mobile Devices are available on:
