I. Mobile, Mobile, Mobile!

People are increasingly connected to devices and digital information, even while on the move. They can be connected from anywhere - at work, at home, on vacation, and everywhere in between and beyond. Technology is co-evolving to enable new modalities of mobile interaction and assistive computing. Because people on the move interact with these technologies while also navigating the world around them, the design challenges are fascinating and complicated.

We invite 2-3 page extended abstracts for proposed talks on the study of people on the move and the design of technologies for them. All topics related to understanding and designing for mobile scenarios are welcome. The standard presentation format is a 45-minute talk followed by a 10-minute discussant presentation, and then 35 minutes of open discussion. Topics should be appropriate for this format. Abstracts may, for example:

  • Report on qualitative or quantitative research results relevant to the theme
  • Review theory or research relevant to the theme
  • Introduce new theory
  • Provide overview tutorials on relevant topics
  • Present new designs or design considerations for the mobile space
  • Offer perspectives on future research directions

Feel free to consult with us about your ideas.

The rules of the consortium state that only employees of member organizations may submit abstracts for this call. Abstracts may have non-member coauthors. However the board must approve attendance or co-presentation. Students are not eligible to submit an abstract; they are strongly encouraged to submit a Boaster (to be solicited at a later date).

We ask interested parties to submit extended abstracts proposed for presentation by Monday, March 3rd at 11:59pm PST to hciccommittee@umich.edu, after which we will work with the submitters of promising abstracts to put together a program that will be instructive, reflective, and inclusive.

Deadline: Mon, Mar 3, 2014 @ 11:59pm PST
Notification of acceptance: Fri, Mar 21, 2014
Format: ACM HCI archive format
Length: 2-3 page
Email: hciccommittee@umich.edu

II. Boasters

We invite you to submit a boaster for HCIC 2014. A "boaster" is an eight page or less paper. Boasters will be posted in their entirety at the HCIC web site, but only abstracts will be distributed at the conference. At the opening session of the meeting, all Boaster presenters will be asked to stand, announce their names and provide an overview of their boaster in 45 seconds. This procedure provides a valuable way of getting smaller papers and new authors - especially graduate students - to attend the conference and to interact with the attendees. Historically, we find that the resulting interactions have been beneficial for all concerned.

Requirements:

  1. A cover page with:
    • Title, author(s) (indicate those available to chat at meeting)
    • A one-word keyword
    • A 50 word abstract
  2. A paper of 8 pp. or less.

Deadline for Boasters: Friday, June 6, 2014 (you may upload a boaster after this date, but it will not be part of the printed conference materials)

Directions for Boaster Submission:

Boasters must be submitted online in PDF format at the HCIC web page. All boasters are automatically accepted. There is no review process.

If you have any questions contact the HCIC Webmaster at hcic.webmaster@umich.edu.

HCIC Online Paper Archives

All papers and boasters will be posted and archived on the HCIC web site. Additionally, we request that authors and discussants submit their slides to be posted online. Access to the HCIC website and paper archive is limited to member organizations (through IP address or password authentication). The HCIC web site is not indexed by public search engines. If you have any questions or concerns about the online papers archive, please contact Todd Stuart (hcic-admin@umich.edu).
