MOBILE COLLABORATION SYSTEMS: Challenges for design, work practice, infrastructure, and business
Workshop at COOP 2010, Aix-en-Provence, France, 19-21 May

Mobile devices are expected to soon become the “primary computer” and tool for sharingand connecting with others. In our thriving world of mobile communication, technologicaladvances have brought a number of novel and improved ways of collaboration; in business, commerce, healthcare, education, and society in general. Collaboration can help to overcome the limitations of a single user, device, and network. However, creating mobile collaborative applications and systems requires careful consideration and design.

This workshop aims to bring together designers, practitioners and researchers who share an interest in the study and design of mobile collaborative systems.
Description of the themes of the workshop

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to

* Mobile collaboration technologies in industry and business, e.g. mobile commerce, health care, telecommunication, etc.
* Business models of mobile collaboration, e.g. mobile advertising, paid mobile content, innovation from emerging markets, etc.
* Collaborative and user-provided networks, WLAN communities
* Architectures and application frameworks of mobile collaboration systems
* Security, privacy, trust and protection of identity in mobile collaborative systems
* Design patterns of mobile collaborative systems and collaborative processes
* Mobile collaboration-based user-provided services
* Visualization of collaborative structures and processes
* Awareness and ubiquity in mobile collaborative systems
* Social applications, e.g. collaborative games
* Location-based mobile collaboration, e.g. pedestrian navigation, augmented reality applications, etc.
* User interaction and input techniques of mobile collaboration systems
* User tests and evaluation of mobile collaboration systems; experiences from living labs
* Impact of next generation mobile networks on mobile collaboration

This full day workshop will be structured as follows: welcome and introduction of organizers, poster ‘madness’ where participants introduce themselves and briefly advertise their work, coffee break and poster session with mingling to encourage small group discussions; afterwards discussion and group work, wrap up.

The main goal of the workshop is to share understandings and experiences as well as to foster communities of interest. Depending on composition of the groups and workshop members’ experiences, the conceptualization of a ‘handbook for the design of mobile collaborative systems’ could be an additional target of the workshop.

Each of the workshop participants should prepare a poster (alternatively two slides) of the contribution. Posters are presented shortly, and then discussed with the other workshop participants. According to our experience, presentation of posters results in much more interactive and fruitful discussion than the presentation of slides.

The interaction of this workshop is mainly characterized by group work carried out in small teams. Metaplan, brainstorming and similar techniques are used as appropriate. Before beginning group work, each group sets a set of target goals to be achieved. After the work in separate groups, all results are presented, discussed and collected together, with the target to come to final decisions on further steps.

Workshop proceedings will be published online (e.g. public BSCW, IRSI - International Reports on Socio-Informatics, etc.) The number of participants for this full day workshop is limited to 12.

Important dates:
06 April, 2010: Extended deadline for paper submissions
16 April, 2010: Notification about acceptance/rejection of workshop contributions
18 May, 2010: COOP’10 workshop on Mobile Collaboration Systems
