Short papers must be anonymized and no more than 4 pages long, including figures, references, and appendices. Short papers must contain an abstract that is less than 150 words long and clearly states the Paper’s contribution to the MobileHCI field. Submitted PDFs must be no larger than 4 megabytes. Please read the ACM MobileHCI09 Proceedings format for detailed information on how your short paper should be written and formatted.
Short papers are much more focused and succinct contributions to the research program and are likely to have a smaller scope of contribution than full papers. For example, short papers on applications may not cover the entire iterative design cycle (observation, design, implementation, evaluation, etc.) but may instead go into depth in specific areas. Short papers are not expected to include a discussion of related work that is as broad and complete as that of a submission to the full papers venue.
Authors must develop a 30 word contribution and benefits statement for their short paper. A contribution/benefit statement describes the contribution made by the short paper to MobileHCI and the benefit that readers can gain from it. This statement will be entered when the short paper is submitted, and will be seen and assessed by reviewers along with the short paper. This statement should also be appended as an additional page of your PDF file with no other content on this page.
Authors are advised to log into Conference Review System and become familiarized with the online submission process well before the deadline. Authors can submit and resubmit materials as often as they please before the deadline. This includes descriptive information (meta-data) you provide during the upload process, as well as the abstract, your short paper, contribution and benefits statement.
The submission site will be locked promptly at the submission deadline on (EXTENDED!) Monday, February 09th, 2009 at 6:00 PM CEST Berlin, and authors will no longer be allowed access to the submissions. To be fair to all authors, no extensions will be granted.
Short papers undergo a rigorous review process, managed by the Program chair and a committee of meta-reviewers. Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference. Final camera-ready versions of accepted short papers must be accompanied by a signed copyright form.
Accepted Short Papers will be distributed in the printed conference proceedings. They will also be placed on the conference CD-ROM and in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide.
