Call for Workshops
Are you working in an emerging area in MobileHCI?  Please consider
organizing a workshop!  Workshops allow members of a community to meet
in the context of a focused and interactive discussion.  Arranging a
workshop is an opportunity to move the field forward and to build a
community.  MobileHCI workshops might address basic research, applied
research, HCI practice, new methodologies, emerging application areas,
design innovations, management and organizational issues, or HCI
education.  Each workshop should generate ideas that give the
MobileHCI community a new, organized way of thinking about the topic,
or ideas that suggest promising directions for future research.  Some
workshops result in edited books or special issues of journals; you
may consider including this goal in the design of your workshop.

Workshop organisers
Workshops will be held previous to the conference, on the 21st of
September.  Two workshop formats will be available:  half-day and
full-day.  Half-day workshops should be scheduled to use 3 working
hours, with one break.  Full-day workshops should be scheduled to use
6 working hours, with a mid-morning break, a lunch break, and a
mid-afternoon break.  Workshops typically have 15 to 20 participants. 
Focused interaction among participants is important, so participants
must have informed positions based on prior experience.

Workshop organisers submit a workshop proposal to the MobileHCI
conference.  The proposals are reviewed and are either accepted or
rejected.  If a workshop is accepted, the workshop is publicised by
both MobileHCI conference and the workshop organisers.  The deadline
for workshop proposal submission is Feb 24th 2012.  Full details for
the workshop proposals, submission format and, participation in the
workshops are given at:
