=== MOBILE EXPERIENCES (new track!)

MobileHCI 2008 offers Mobile Experiences to enable researchers to test their applications in a real-life setting in a potential user group of hundreds of conference attendees. The test period is not only during the conference, but also before and after the conference, so that you (as a conference attendee) can take advantage of the applications in your daily life, at home, in the office, and during your leisure time. 


Nine different applications have been accepted for Mobile Experiences! Check them out, test them to the max, and let the designers and developers know what you think about their apps. Your feedback (via a form provided for each application) helps the developers to further improve their ideas, visions and implementations.

We look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam!
