Instructions for TUTORIAL Proposals

Instructions for WORKSHOP Proposals:

The purpose of workshops is to provide an informal setting where participants have the opportunity to discuss specific Mobile HCI topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. To encourage interaction, each workshop will be limited to 30 participants and ample time must be allotted for general discussion.

Workshop Proposals must be between two and three pages in length, and contain the following information:

* A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the workshop goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
* A discussion of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.
* A preliminary workshop agenda and a proposed schedule for organizing the workshop. This should include a brief description of how the organizers intend to encourage an atmosphere appropriate for a workshop.
* (If available) a list of tentatively confirmed attendees.
* (If available) a list of related workshops held within the last three years and their relation to the proposed workshop.
* The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of the proposed workshop organizing committee. These people must be knowledgeable about the technical issues to be addressed and cannot all work at the same institution.
* The name of the primary contact for the organizing committee.
* A description of the qualifications of the individual committee members with respect to the Mobile HCI field.
* (If available) a list of workshops previously arranged by members of the proposed committee.

Instructions for TUTORIAL Proposals:

Tutorial Proposals should contain the following information:

* A brief description of the tutorial.
* A detailed outline of the tutorial.
* Characterization of the tutorial as introductory, intermediate or advanced.
* Lenght of the tutorial (half-day, full-day).
* Characterization of the potential target audience, including prerequisite knowledge and a description of why the tutorial topic would be of interest to a substantial audience.
* A brief resume of the presenter, which should include name, postal address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address, background in the tutorial area, evidence of experience in Mobile HCI research, and evidence of teaching experience.

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of the quality of the proposal, their benefits to participants and their fit within the overall programme. Factors to be considered include relevance, timeliness and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a half-day or full-day format; use of appropriate presentation methods and exercises; past experience and qualifications of the instructors.

Tutorials that advocate a single avenue of research or promote a product will NOT be considered.

Accepted tutorials might be later canceled if too few attendees register for the tutorial to support the costs of running it.
