Call for Papers for the 4th International Workshop on Pervasive Mobile
Interaction Devices (PERMID 2008)
- Mobile Devices as Pervasive User Interfaces and Interaction Devices -

Workshop at the Pervasive 2008 (May 19-22 2008)

Sydney, Australia

Mobile devices have become a pervasive part of our everyday live. People
have mobile phones, smartphones and PDAs with them nearly always and
everywhere. So far these mobile devices have been mostly used for phone
calls, messaging and organizer functionalities. However, mobile multimedia
features, device-integrated sensors and improving data transfer capabilities
are expanding their use to ever increasing application areas.
Interaction research on the pervasive mobile devices is a rather young and
rapidly developing field. Mobile devices offer great potential to develop
new interaction methods and applications for pervasive computing. They can
function as a mediator between the virtual and the physical world, as an
accessible user interface for smart environments, and platforms for location
or context-aware application, to mention a few.
PERMID 2008 seeks to follow the sequence of earlier PERMID workshops, being
the fourth of the kind since 2005. The workshop has a solid track record of
interesting, high-quality presentations, lively discussions, and 20-25
participants each year.

Possible topics for the workshop include (but are not limited to): 
- Interactions between mobile devices and the real world
- Interactive context-aware services on mobile devices
- Augmented, virtual and mixed reality on mobile phones and PDAs (tracking,
markers, visualisation)
- Using mobile devices as user interfaces for terminals and vending machines
- Portable music players (e.g. iPod Photo) and personal servers as mobile
interaction devices
- Multimodal interaction taking mobile devices into account
- Usage of sensors of mobile devices (camera, microphone, GPS, etc.) for
pervasive applications
- Interaction metaphors for pervasive applications and services
- Gathering, management and usage of context information
- User experience, user studies
- Applications and scenarios 

Important Dates
- January 25, 2008: Deadline for submissions of workshop papers
- February 29, 2008: Notification of acceptance for workshop papers
- March 21, 2008: Deadline for preparing camera-ready copies
- May 19-22, 2008: Pervasive 2008

- Jonna Hakkila (Nokia Corporation, Finland)
- Gregor Broll (University of Munich, Germany)
- Enrico Rukzio (Lancaster University, UK)
- Derek Reilly (Dalhousie University, Canada)

The main goal of the workshop is to develop an understanding of how mobile
devices (particularly mobile phones, smartphones and PDAs) can be used as
interaction devices. We will provide a forum to share information, results,
and ideas on current research in this area. Furthermore we aim to develop
new ideas on how mobile phones can be exploited for new forms of interaction
with the environment. We will bring together researchers and practitioners
who are concerned with design, development, and implementation of new
applications and services using personal mobile devices as user interfaces.

Workshop Format
The workshop will feature presentation of research results, ongoing work,
ideas, concepts, and critical questions related to the use of mobile devices
as user interfaces in the real world. Every presentation will be followed by
a corresponding discussion. Furthermore we invite the presenters to show
their demonstrators during their presentation and in the breaks.

Participation & Process
The number of participants should be limited to 25 people. Prospective
authors are invited to submit their contribution, in PDF format conform to
the ACM SIG Proceedings format
( electronically to
jonna.hakkila (at) no later than January 25, 2008. Every submitted
paper will be reviewed by two of the organizers and based on this the
organizers will select circa 10 papers for presentation at the workshop.
Papers should have a length of about 4 pages.

The proceedings of Permid 2008 will be either published as a technical
report of the University of Munich (ISSN Number) or as part of the workshop
proceedings which will be provided by Pervasive 2008. The workshops
proceedings will also be made available online & distributed electronically
at the conference on a CD or memory stick. Permid 2008 will provide also
printed proceedings for the participants of the workshop.
