                    CHI 2002 WORKSHOP

              "Mobile Ad Hoc Collaboration"

                 Minneapolis, Minnesota
                    April 21, 2002

           Submission Deadline: January 25, 2002


This workshop aims to provide a forum for the discussion of human-factors
issues related to the design and evaluation of collaborative applications
for mobile ad-hoc and personal-area networks. In particular, it tries to
advance the understanding of how ad-hoc network applications can facilitate
spontaneous collaboration.

The emergence of mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET) creates opportunities for
new forms of mobile collaboration involving interaction between people who
are co-located and organized in an unforeseeable way. The acceptance of
MANET devices and networks will depend on the applications they facilitate
and the social benefits they provide.

Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:

- Presence-based and face-to-face collaboration
- Support for opportunistic meetings
- Spontaneous collaboration
- Mobile and wearable communities
- Groupware for mobile collaboration
- Security and privacy aspects
- Usability aspects
- Social impacts
- Design and evaluation methods


- Gerd Kortuem, University of Oregon, USA
- Hans-Werner Gellersen, Lancaster University, UK
- Mark Billinghurst, University of Washington, USA


We seek contributions in the form of case/design studies, evaluations of
existing systems or theoretical work. The intention is to bring together
researchers from a wide variety of disciplines such as CSCW, HCI,
Mobile/Wearable Computing, Ubiquitous/Distributed Computing and Wireless
Networking, to discuss issues related to the design, development, and
evaluation of MANET applications.

By January 25th, send a position paper of no more than four (4) pages
describing ongoing research or research interests. Send submissions in PDF
or postscript format to Gerd Kortuem at [log in to unmask]

We plan to publish accepted submissions as part of workshop proceedings.
