Message from the Workshops Co-Chairs

Workshops provide a valuable opportunity for small communities of people to debate and advance emerging topics in Mobile Human-Computer Interaction. The purpose is to provide an informal setting where participants have the opportunity to discuss in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. We especially invite submissions that identify and elaborate advanced mobile interaction topics.

Submission may cover basic research, applied research, HCI practice, new methodologies, emerging application areas, and design innovations. Workshops often result in edited books or special issues of journals, or become recurrent events as it was for mHCI.

About Workshops

Workshops will be held on 12th of September 2006. A workshop may be one whole or a half day in length. To encourage interaction, each workshop will be limited to 30 participants and ample time must be allotted for general discussion. Accepted workshops might be cancelled if too few attendees register for the workshop to support the costs of running it.
Focused interaction among participants is important, so participants must have informed positions based on prior experience.
