MOBILE HCI provides a forum for academics and practitioners to discuss
the challenges and potential solutions for effective interaction
with mobile systems. It covers the design, evaluation
and application of HCI techniques and approaches for all
mobile computing devices and services.
MOBILE HCI started as an international workshop (held in Glasgow in 98,
in Edinburgh at INTERACT 99, in Lille at IHM-HCI-2001). Due to its
continuous growth, it successfully became a full conference with
the 2002 edition (held in Pisa).

Authors are invited to submit their work
for careful review by the International Program Committee.
Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

    * Audio and speech interaction
    * Context-dependent systems
    * Designing Web sites for mobile devices
    * Evaluation of mobile devices and services
    * Intelligent environments
    * Location-aware interaction
    * Model-based design of interactive mobile systems
    * Multimodal interaction
    * Novel user interfaces
    * Perception and modeling of the environment
    * Safety issues (e.g., in-car user interfaces)
    * Specific classes of handheld devices
      (PDA, Pocket PC, WAP phone,...)
    * 3D graphics on mobile devices
    * 3G/4G devices and services
    * Usability of mobile devices and services
    * Visualization techniques for the mobile context

Submit short papers of up to 5 pages (including figures and
references) in PDF format by 11:59pm PST, May 6, 2003 via
the Symposium Web Page. Papers must be formatted using the
document templates available at Springer-Verlag LNCS
Instructions page (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).
After acceptance, the final revised paper is required also
in electronic form.

Accepted short papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings,
published by Springer Verlag in the series
Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Accepted short papers will be presented at the conference
as brief talks or posters.
The suitability for presentation as a brief talk or
a poster will be evaluated by the conference committee.
You may express your preference for a presentation format
in your submission, but there is no guarantee
that it will be met.
