Instructions for WORKSHOP Proposals
Instructions for TUTORIAL 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.
Tutorial Proposals should contain the
* A brief description of the tutorial.
* A detailed outline of the tutorial.
* Characterization of the tutorial as introductory, intermediate or advanced.

knowledge and a description of why the tutorial topic would be of interest to a substantial
* 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.
