MobileHCI 2020 workshop “Learning from mHealth Success Stories: Effective Interventions for Marginalised Populations”

Date: October 5, 2020 (virtual)
Website: <>
The MobileHCI 2020 [1] workshop “Learning from mHealth Success Stories: Effective Interventions for Marginalised Populations” is intended to critically reflect on effective (and less effective) mHealth interventions with an interdisciplinary lens, bringing together researchers from HCI, public health and related disciplines. We focus on marginalised groups, e.g. low-income populations from rural areas, developing countries or with low digital health literacy.


Papers Deadline: July 10, 2020, AoE
Decisions: July 30, 2020
Workshop: Monday, October 5, 2020

=== GOALS ===

• Discuss HCI and related topics on how to reach marginalised groups with mHealth interventions
• Analyse success (and failure) stories of mHealth projects beyond the scope of single disciplines such as HCI
• Explore interdisciplinary working and associated differences in nomenclature and common practices in design, development and evaluation
• Collect initial ideas and concepts for a framework of multidisciplinary mHealth intervention development


We invite researchers from disciplines such as computer science, HCI, social sciences, public health and psychology. Practitioners, designers and developers are welcome to attend. We especially want to reach out to people that represent or are specifically interested in marginalised populations. 

Authors are asked to submit an extended abstract [2] of 2-4 pages (excluding references) stating their previous work in the domain or their position in respect to the workshop topic. Position papers should report on experiences with mHealth projects and critically reflect on them. Furthermore, we ask authors to list their three most critical discussion points as well as short biographies. At least two members of the workshop organizing team will review the papers, mainly with regard to the relevance to the topic.

All participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the conference. Papers can be submitted via EasyChair [3].
