CALL FOR WORKSHOP PAPERS:


COMMUNITY PRACTICES AND LOCATIVE MEDIA: Workshop at MobileHCI 2009, Bonn, Germany on 15th September 2009


MOTIVATION
There have been many developments in the design of applications of locative media in urban settings, such as
LBS, location-based gaming and mobile social software applications but little which investigates the use and
integration of such media within existing community structures and practices. The workshop will address the
dual challenge of capturing the temporary and spatially changeful nature of behaviours with locative media, as
well as responding to the intricate web of strong and weak social ties that make up local social networks, in
order to find ways to support community practices. In terms of methodology it will focus on the potential of
ethnographic approaches for investigating and evaluating the integration of media in these social settings.

Workshop Aims
* How can mobile media be located within existing communities and social settings?
* How can we find better ways of enabling and supporting locative media in community practices?
* How can mobile media foster communities and facilitate daily living, such as for communities in rural
areas or the elderly?
* How can ethnographic methods inform and evaluate the place and integration of media in
community settings?

We welcome contributions from researchers and practitioners from a diverse range of fields such as HCI,
media, anthropology, sociology and urban studies. Submissions should have a length of 3- 4 pages and be
formatted using the MobileHCI 2009 proceedings format. We accept full papers, position papers, work-in-progress
or blue-sky thinking. Selection of workshop participants will be based on refereed submissions. It is
our aim to publish and document the outcomes of the workshop.
