collaborative sport. Cleats encouraged but not necessary. Variable
expertise levels encouraged!

Some relevant topic and themes include:
* Exercise
* Spirit of the game
* Activity modeling
* Multi-modal and bimanual user interfaces
* Collaboration and competition

Important dates:

Workshop Submission due by Nov 5.

You need to RSVP so we can know how much water and how many cones to 
bring and so we can add you to an email list. Details about where to 
meet, etc. will be sent out by email as the conference approaches. They 
will also be published on the Facebook Event page and here:

We look forward to seeing you at the workshop!

Note and Disclaimer: This is not a real workshop. It will not result
in an edited book or a special issue of a journal. You can't put it on
your CV. It's just an attempt to play some ultimate in the beautiful
San Diego weather during the conference. We'll provide water, cones,
and some discs. You provide yourself, a white and dark shirt, and
athletic shoes (cleats if you've got 'em and feel like bringing 'em).
We'll all chip in and order pizza to eat after we're done playing. The
lunch sessions this year will be really, really long, so there's
plenty of time to shower and get dressed before the afternoon sessions.

Never played before? That's fine! It's a simple sport that can be
learned in about 5 minutes (though of course it takes a lifetime to
master). There is a lot of running, though, so a modicum of physical
fitness is recommended. It's open to women, men, young and old. This
event is not endorsed by anybody (not by ACM, CSCW, U. Michigan,
Microsoft, San Diego, or your mother) so in the extremely unlikely
even that you get injured (please don't) there's nobody to blame but
yourself and maybe the person that ran you over.
