CALL FOR PARTICIPATION - Deadline extended to Oct. 31, 2008

CHI 2009 Workshop: Mobile User Experience Research: Challenges, Methods &
Tools <http://sites.google.com/site/chi09mobileworkshop>

We invite submissions for a CHI 2009 one-day workshop on mobile user
experience (UX) research methods and tools.

Recent years have seen rapid innovation in this space, often by researchers
adapting existing methods and tools for mobile-specific challenges and
opportunities; in addition to entirely novel approaches.

This workshop brings together researchers in industry and academia,
designers, and creators of mobile research tools who have faced the
challenges of mobile UX research and may have responded with innovative
approaches. We'll examine the co-evolution of methods and tools by
considering goals and requirements, and how these are shared and differ
between mobile researchers and practitioners.

Aspects we'll consider include, but are not limited to:

* Capturing interaction and system state
* Recognizing and capturing user context and state
* Gathering and managing users' self-reports


IMPORTANT DATES
Submission deadline: [extended] October 31, 2008
Notification: November 28, 2008
Workshop: April 5, 2009

SUBMISSIONS
To participate, please submit a position paper (2-5 pages, CHI Extended
Abstracts format) detailing your experiences with mobile UX research:

All submissions should include:
* Your role & environment
* Methods and tools that worked well for you
* Those you've tried and discontinued  and why
* Re-appearing issues and unsolved problems in this domain
* Proposals of new tools or methods
* Any other areas you'd like to see covered

Longer submissions could also include, for example (optionally):
*  Supporting photographs or illustrations
*  Proposals for novel ideas
*  A map of the space of mobile methods and/or tools vs. those for
non-mobile products
*  Offer a more extended position paper.

Have questions? Check out the frequently asked
questions<http://sites.google.com/site/chi09mobileworkshop/Home/frequently-asked-questions>
 .

This workshop will provide a forum for learning from others' resources and
experiences, while sharing your own. A particular goal is to create draft
requirements for novel tools, through sharing, brainstorming and prototyping
activities.  We invite every participant to pursue these as opportunities in
both open-source and commercial spaces.

The event will take place on Sunday, April 5, 2009 in Boston, MA, and will
require registration for at least one day of the CHI conference; some
details are already available at
http://www.chi2009.org/Authors/CallForPapers/WorkshopParticipants.html.
(Last year's conference rates are available at
