If you are interested in attending a workshop, you must submit a position paper to the workshop organizers. Position papers are reviewed by the workshop organizers using their own criteria, and workshop organizers decide on the final list of workshop participants. Workshops are only open to people who have had their position paper accepted by the workshop organizers, and who have registered for both the workshop and the MobileHCI09 conference. Workshop position papers will NOT be published in the (supplementary) conference proceedings.

This workshop will offer an interdisciplinary forum of discussion for both practitioners and academics interested in conceptualizing, designing and evaluating mobile social media concepts and applications. The workshop will facilitate discussions aiming at identify and summarize main theoretical and interaction design concerns related to the increasing use of mobile social media in a variety of settings. The aim of this workshop is to describe, discuss and reflect upon the following issues:
- Current practices associated with the use of mobile social media for supporting a wide variety of intellectual and physical activities.
- Interaction design challenges associated with the use and adoption of mobile social media
- Theoretical frameworks and analytical concepts that present and elaborate novel ideas regarding communication and interaction patterns among users of mobile social media.
Position papers should address one of the topics of the workshop and are generally 4-6 pages long. Accepted papers will be published as workshop proceedings in the Tampere University of Technology publication series. The workshop materials, together with a summary of discussions, will be published on the web after the workshop.
Detailed information of the workshop and submission guidelines can be found by pointing your web browser to http://www.tut.fi/amc and following the link MobileHCI workshop.

The workshop will address the dual challenge of responding to the intricate web of strong and weak social ties that make up local social networks, as well as capturing the temporary and spatially changeful nature of behaviours with locative media, in order to find ways to support community practices. In terms of methodology it will focus on the potential of ethnographic approaches for investigating and evaluating the integration of media in these social settings.
- How can mobile media be located within existing communities and social settings?
- How can we find better ways of enabling and supporting locative media in community practices?
- How can mobile media foster communities and facilitate daily living, such as for communities in rural areas or the elderly?
- How can ethnographic methods inform and evaluate the place and integration of media in community settings?
Submission deadline of workshop paper (extended): Friday, May 15th, 2009.
18th May 2009: Acceptance notifications.
15th September 2009: Workshop.

The 4th workshop on Mobile Interaction with the Real World focuses on new mobile and wearable input and output interfaces which allow simpler and straightforward interactions with mobile services and applications. An inherit problem of current mobile devices are their limited output and input capabilities. This workshop continues a successful series of workshops that focus on new approaches to overcome these issues. Examples are the usage of external visual interfaces (e.g. projector phones, public displays, interactive surfaces) and additional input capabilities (e.g. gestures, on-body interfaces, pointing) and innovative feedback mechanisms (e.g. tactile feedback). The workshop combines technical presentations with the presentation of prototypes and focused discussions to drive interaction between participants.
The main goal of the workshop is to develop an understanding of how mobile devices can be used to interact with the real world. We seek for new ideas, prototypes, and insights as basis to develop a deeper understanding of the field. We will provide a forum to share information, results, and ideas on current research in this area. This workshop encourages discussion about future topics concerning mobile interaction with the real world. Furthermore we aim to develop new ideas on how mobile devices 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.
Submissions should have a length of circa 4 pages formatted using the Mobile HCI 2009 proceedings format, should be submitted electronically using the workshop submission system. We accept full papers, position paper, work-in-progress or demonstrations. Authors of accepted papers are invited to demonstrate their systems in the afternoon session “InterMedia Café”.

In a Mobile Living Lab, mobile devices are used to evaluate concepts and prototypes in real-life settings. In other words: the lab is brought to the people. This one-day workshop provides a forum for designers, researchers and practitioners who are interested in sharing experiences and issues with methods and tools for Mobile Living Labs. In particular, we seek to attract both people who have applied Mobile Living Lab methods and people who build tools for Mobile Living Labs.
We invite those designers, researchers and practitioners who want to contribute to a vivid discussion leading to improved methods and tools to study user experience in the real context of use to submit a 2-4 page position paper, on any relevant topic for the workshop, including challenges and solutions for Mobile Living Labs, innovative methods and tools for data collection and analysis.
Further details about submission and up to date information about deadlines and other important dates can be found at http://mll09.novay.nl.

Context-awareness is becoming an important feature of mobile technology, and with advances in technology development, new application and service concepts are being developed and demonstrated in an ever-increasing manner. Although the most typical examples of context-awareness are still concepts that concentrate on an individual user and his/her interaction with the device, context-awareness also has great potential in enhancing social networks, and facilitating collaboration and other social interactions. Moreover, social networks can also be exploited as contextual information source.
This workshop invites submissions on HCI aspects of context-aware mobile technology and social networks. The workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to present their insights and research on new concepts, interaction design for mobile context-awareness, usability challenges, collaborative context-aware services and applications for supporting social network, and other topics related to HCI with mobile context-aware technology. The submission with the maximum length of 3 pages in ACM format should be sent to email@example.com by the 4th of May 2009, as a pdf file. The submissions will be reviewed by the workshop organizers. In addition to presentations based on the submissions, the workshop provides a forum for active discussions and an opportunity to present demonstrators.

Emotions are a key element in the analysis of user experience. Observational analysis, interviews and questionnaires can be supported by various physiological measurement methods (e.g. GSR or EMG) to investigate such emotions. This workshop addresses approaches to mobile emotion measurement. The workshop addresses particularly the state-of-the-art in the emotion research and investigates the possibilities to apply and adopt these methods in the field of mobile HCI and user experience research. We will select participants with diverse backgrounds based upon the relevance, insightfulness, and originality of their submissions. Particularly important is the challenge of portability of the available solutions and their applicability in the field.
Submissions are invited on the following topics:
- Real-time, near-real-time and offline methods for mobile emotion measurement.
- Quantitative and qualitative methods to affect and emotions in the context of user experience.
- Technology and services to exploit affective technology.
- Case studies and examples of methods for emotion measurement and their application in the user experience domain.
Submissions should be 2-4 pages in the MobileHCI09 other tracks paper template format, describing the area of research, specific work (empirical or theoretical) on the workshop topic and the innovative character of the research. Submissions should be submitted through the workshop website at http://mme.cure.at by Monday, May 4th. Participants will be selected to represent diverse perspectives and the organizers are looking for positions that can stimulate discussion.
