The main goal of the workshop is to discuss approaches that use a mobile device for interactions with objects in the real world. Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) mobile interaction with the real world; mobile devices as user interfaces for terminals and vending machines; and Frameworks, middleware and APIs for the development of applications that take mobile interactions with the real world into account.

The workshop combines technical presentations with the presentation of prototypes and focussed discussions to drive interaction between participants. The main goal of the workshop is to develop an understanding of how mobile devices can be used when interacting with the real world. We will provide a forum to share information, results, and ideas on current research in this area. Furthermore we aim to develop new ideas on how mobile phones can be exploited for new forms of interaction with the environment. We will bring together researchers and practitioners who are concerned with design, development, and implementation of new applications and services using personal mobile devices as user interfaces.
