Call For Papers:
*UbiTtention 2018 (3rd International Workshop on Smart & Ambient 
Notification and Attention Management)*
in conjunction with ACM UbiComp/ISWC 2018 (Singapore)

*Submission deadline: July 20, 2018*

Workshop date: October 08 or 12, 2018


Workshop Theme and Goals
In the advancing ubiquitous computing, users are increasingly confronted 
with a tremendous amount of information proactively provided via 
notifications from versatile applications and services, through multiple 
devices and screens in their environment. Thus, our human’s attention 
have been getting a new significant bottleneck. Further, the latest 
computing trends with emerging new devices including versatile IoT 
devices, and contexts, such as smart cities, smart mobility including 
vehicles, are even accelerating this situation. In such situations, 
“attention management”, including attention representation, sensing, 
prediction, analysis and adaptive behavior in the computer systems, are 
obviously needed in our computing system. Following the successful 
UbiTtention’16 and UbiTtention’17 workshops, the UbiTtention’18 workshop 
brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry 
to explore the management of human attention and smart and ambient 
notifications with versatile devices and situations in order to overcome 
information overload and overchoice. In this workshop, we want to focus 
on a larger understanding of the different roles notifications can play 
in a wide variety of computing environments including the office, the 
home, in cars, and other smart environments.

The topics of interest include -but are not limited to- the following:

  * Detection/prediction of users' status around attention and
    notifications, such as availability, interruptibility, receptivity,
    attentional status and cognitive load for interruption
  * Exchanging, sharing, analysis and feedback on such capability above
    (beyond detection and prediction)
  * Understanding users' behavior and habits around notifications and
    interruption, including longer term user engagement and behavior change
  * Short-term / long-term engagement to the notification content and
    corresponding services/applications
  * Versatile types of information presentation methodologies including
    ambient, peripheral, distributed and multi-modal presentation
  * Infrastructures, frameworks and tools for the development of smart
    attention systems
  * Real-world implementation and deployment of attention-aware systems
    (including but not limited to notification)
  * Strategies for attention management against emerging computing with
    IoT devices
  * Use of ambient representations for big-data analysis
  * Management of information overload in various emerging computing
    venues such as smart city and smart mobility
  * New emerging research area in attention-awareness,
    human-cognition-awareness etc.

Submission details
A paper should be anonymized and should have a length of maximum 6 pages 
(including references) in the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts format. Each 
submission 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 presented 
briefly by one of the authors. In addition, there will be room for 
demonstrations as well as discussions.

Submissions shall be made via easychair:
