MoSoGood 2014: Mobiles for Social Good
Workshop at ACM MobileHCI 2014, Toronto, Canada
September 23, 2014
http://mosogood.capacitylab.org/
Submission Deadline: May 30, 2014


About MoSoGood
Beyond facilitating communication, mobile phones are also transforming the way we send money, take care of our health, check market prices, engage with our governments, do emergency response, and many other things. However, to a vast majority of the world's population many of these services remain out of reach due to issues of low-literacy, limited technology experience, language barriers, device and infrastructure constraints, physical disabilities, socio-cultural and socio-economic barriers. For example, 60% out of 5 billion mobile phone subscribers worldwide live in developing countries. This provides a challenging research context for how research in HCI could help underserved populations, across the developing and the developed world.
The "Mobiles for Social Good" workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in understanding underserved populations in both the developing and developed world, and designing, developing, and evaluating mobile systems for social and economic development.


Call for Contributions
We want to bring together a diverse group of participants with different backgrounds and interests to identify common research practices, to discuss challenges of HCI research in the field, and to discuss particular requirements of specific challenges at the intersection of HCI and Mobiles for the Social Good. We invite the contribution of detailed problem statements, position papers, research papers, and interactive demos of up to 4 pages from everybody interested to share ideas, experience, or methods applicable within the scope of this workshop.

Topics
Topics of the MSoGood workshop include but are not limited to:
* Interfaces/interactions for illiterate or low-literates - both in the strict and wider sense (e.g., techno-literacy)
* Interfaces/interactions for (mobile) data collection and contribution
* Interfaces/interactions for participatory sensing/monitoring or other citizen science activities
* Context-adaptive interfaces
* Interfaces/interactions for mobile ICT4D systems
* HCI research methods for underserved populations
* Socio-cultural and socio-economic challenges
