#############################################
MobileHCI 2020, October 5-8, Oldenburg, Germany
Workshop: Designing Mobile Interactive Systems for Societal and Technical Resilience
Deadline for submissions: June 5th, 2020

#############################################

DESCRIPTION

Digitalization and interconnectedness, facilitated by the Internet of Things (IoT) and the widespread distribution of mobile devices, can be used to tackle important societal challenges. This is maybe most prominently visible in the response to the COVID-2019 Pandemic. However, the design of mobile technology, functionality and underlying infrastructures must be resilient against disruptions caused by man-made (e.g. bombings, hacking) and natural (e.g. earthquakes, hurricanes) crises, emergencies and threats. To explore challenges, designs and potentials of interactive technologies, this workshop investigates the overlapping space of mobile technologies and resilient systems, including future application domains such as smart cities.

While digitalization and interconnectedness can solve many challenges, others arise from it:
- How can the functionality of current and future smart cities or rural areas be secured in extreme situations, crises and catastrophes?
- How can citizens participate in crisis response?
- How can big crisis data be prepared for a meaningful analysis, also mitigating the issue of information overload?
- How can the availability, integrity and reliability of critical infrastructures in digitally interconnected societies be improved in the future?

These are only some questions, which we, as a society, need to address in order to increase societal and technical resilience. Importantly, all challenges combine technological questions with questions of legality, legitimacy, and ethical considerations that are shaped by the socio-political context.

In this workshop, we want to explore the overlapping space that mobile interactive technologies and resilient systems offer as fields of research. Of particular interest is how to integrate mobile warning applications into smart city or rural infrastructure and how to interconnect both to mutual advantages that are technologically feasible and socially acceptable.

Key topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
- Case studies, surveys, use cases and theories on social and technological resilience, including application domains such as smart cities, urban environments and smart rural areas.
- Algorithms and systems for user-centered analysis of big crisis data, including social media analytics, credibility and relevance assessment, social sensors.
- Concepts and technologies for mobile stakeholder participation, including authorities, organizations and citizens, in smart cities and smart rural areas.
- Human and technical factors in decentralized infrastructures, edge computing and wide area networks.
- Innovative analysis, (interaction) design and evaluation of resilient (mobile) information systems.
- Usability and user experience of resilient technologies such as mobile crisis and warning apps or wearables.
- Best practices, methods and strategies for the development and deployment of resilient (mobile) technologies in diverse application domains, including smart cities.

We invite authors to submit short papers up to 5 pages to cover some of the above-mentioned topics.
