Call For Papers

Call for Papers for the 4th International Workshop on
Mobile Interaction with the Real World (MIRW 2009)
A Workshop of the MobileHCI 2009 Conference - September 15, 2009

Workshop at MobileHCI 2008 (September 15-18 2008)

Bonn, Germany

The 4th workshop on Mobile Interaction with the Real World invites papers which focus 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.

Topics of the workshop are applications, interaction techniques, frameworks, and user studies in the area of mobile interaction with the real world. Possible research themes include (but are not limited to):
* Extending the user interface beyond the mobile device
* Mobile interaction with real world objects and smart objects
* Wearable computing and wearable input devices
* Multimodal interaction techniques using mobile phones
* Augmented and mixed reality on mobile devices
* Interaction techniques using external displays, projector phones or floor displays
* Using mobile device's sensors for pervasive applications
* Novel interfaces for conveying spatial information
* Pervasive interaction metaphors
* Guidelines and standards for mobile interactions with the real world
* Interaction techniques using multiple mobile devices
* Support of knowledge processes and collaboration through mobile and wearable technologies

Important Dates
* Monday May 4, 2009 - Submission Deadline
* Friday May 18, 2009 - Acceptance Notification
* Tuesday June 23, 2009 - Revised Manuscript Due
* Tuesday September 15, 2009 - Workshop Date

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.

Workshop Format
The workshop will feature presentations of research results, ongoing work, ideas, concepts, and critical questions related to the use of mobile and wearable devices as user interfaces in the real world. Every presentation will be followed by a corresponding discussion. We invite the presenters to show their demonstrators in a dedicated demo session. Results of the workshop and future research will be discussed in a panel-like style.

Participation & Process
The number of participants will be limited to 25 people. Prospective authors are invited to submit their contribution, in PDF format conform to the ACM Mobile HCI 2009 proceedings template electronically via the workshop's website ( no later than May 4, 2009. Papers must be anonymized and no more than 4 pages long. Every submitted paper will be reviewed by at least two reviewers.

The proceedings of MIRW 2009 will be published by the University of Oldenburg as a book with an ISBN which will be provide to the participants of the workshop. The workshops proceedings will also be made available electronically. Depending on the quality of the papers, we plan to publish extended versions of selected papers in a special journal issue such as the International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction (IJMHCI) or Personal and Ubiquitous Computing.
