Extended deadline to submit requests to participate in the
MobileHCI 2018 Workshop on Designing Speech and Language Interactions for
Mobiles and Wearables
MobileHCI 2018, Barcelona, Spain (Sept 3, 2018)

We have extended to June 15th the deadline to request participation into
this workshop. If interested, please email a short statement to
[log in to unmask] describing your research interest in
the workshop area (preferably combining both HCI and speech/language
processing). Such requests will be considered if they fit the workshop
topics or if they have the potential to contribute to the
community-building efforts of this workshop (but will not have a position
paper presented).

Workshop description:

This workshop aims to bring together interaction designers, usability
researchers, and general HCI and speech processing practitioners. Our goal
is to create, through an interdisciplinary dialogue, momentum for
increased research and collaboration in:
* Formally framing the challenges to the adoption of speech, acoustic, and
natural language interaction,
* Taking concrete steps toward developing a framework of user-centric
design guidelines for speech-, acoustic-, and language-based interactive
systems, grounded in good usability practices,
* Establishing directions and identifying research opportunities in
designing more natural interactions that make use of speech and natural
language, and
* Identifying key challenges and opportunities for enabling and designing
multi-input modalities for a wide range of emerging devices such as
wearables, smart home personal assistants, or social robots.

Workshop topics include but are not limited to: speech, acoustic,
language, and multimodal interaction that address one or more of the
workshop goals, with an emphasis, but not limited to, applications such as
mobile, wearable, smart home, social robots, or pervasive computing.
