TITLE - Text Entry on Mobile Systems: Directions for the Future
ORGANIZERS - Poika Isokoski and Scott MacKenzie
POSITION PAPERS DUE - January 26, 2001
WORKSHOP DATE - Sunday, April 1 (in conjunction with CHI 2001)


Mobile computing devices like mobile phones, handheld computers, digital
cameras, GPS navigators, pagers, game consoles, wrist-top computers and
many other types of gadgets are becoming more frequent every day. Many of
these devices would benefit from an easy and effortless system for text
entry. Not surprisingly, systems claiming to satisfy this need have been
proposed in recent years. A good understanding on the merits of these
systems, however, is lacking.

This one-day workshop invites experts in the area of mobile text entry to

  -the state of the art across cultures and languages
  -the users' needs in the future
  -significant research directions in mobile text entry

The 10-12 participants are selected on the basis of a two-page position
paper. The paper should address one or more of the points above with
emphasis on ideas that help to see the "big picture". In addition,
participants should list their relevant experience.  Especially experience
in inventing, implementing, and evaluating (empirically or theoretically)
text entry methods should be indicated.  Publicly available (preferably in
the web) documents should be cited when referring to systems that are not
globally known. This is necessary because the position papers of the
selected participants will be distributed before the workshop to allow
everybody to familiarize themselves with each other's work. The position
papers are accepted in three formats: ASCII, PDF, and a URL pointing to a
publicly available web page.
