Workshop on Prototyping to Support the Interaction Designing in Mobile Application Development
August 27, 2013, Munich, Germany
Held in conjunction with 15th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services (MobileHCI 2013)
CALL FOR PAPERS
Recent changes in the mobile environments; such as multi-touch gestures, usage of sensors, or single-focused mobile apps; brought several challenges for interaction designers in communicating their ideas and thoughts enduring early design activities. Traditional prototyping techniques may not provide sufficient support due to the lack of mobile interaction paradigms in them. Therefore, a shift is required in prototyping techniques and approaches in order to support properly the interaction design process of mobile application development for the current mobile environments. Targeting these concerns, the workshop envisions that the research must address the need to change in existing prototyping techniques as well as focusing on novel prototyping approaches and frameworks that would support not only the interaction design process but the whole development process of mobile app development.
Topics of interest for paper submissions include, but are not limited to:
* Novel approaches and frameworks for building sketches, mockups, wireframes, and prototypes suitable for mobile environment.
* Tools and environments support for building mockups/wireframes/prototypes for mobile environments.
* Novel approaches for utilizing prototyping in other phases of mobile application development, such as in development or in testing.
* Prototyping approaches that focus on leveraging sensor usage (e.g., using the accelerometer) in early design phases.
* Prototyping of user context.
* Case studies and best practices.
The workshop aims at achieving the following goals:
* Consolidate research and practice related to the prototyping practice in the interaction design process from the context of mobile environments.
* Establishing a platform which will bring interaction designers, requirement engineers, mobile app developers, project managers, and other interested communities closer together and to discuss how to make changes in the existing approaches and frameworks, as well as to investigate novel methods for making the prototyping useful to not only within the interaction design process but throughout the whole development process of mobile application development.
* Grow the body of knowledge related to prototyping and interaction design for mobile environments and identifying challenges and future avenues for research relevant for both academia and industry.
* Providing the relevant communities a dedicated forum for exchanging ideas and best practice and thus foster industry-academia collaboration.
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit contributions including problem statements, technical solutions, experience reports, planned work and vision papers. Tool demonstration papers would also be encouraged.
Paper should be written in English and conform to the MobileHCI 2013 Archive Format [http://www.mobilehci2013.org/submission.php]. The submitted papers must be 2 to 4 pages long, including figures, references, and appendices. Submission must be in PDF format. Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair [https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pidmad2013].
All papers submitted to the workshop must be unpublished original work and must not have been submitted anywhere else for publication. The selection of papers will be based on workshop relevance, academic rigor, innovation, industrial applicability, and quality of writing as well as the suitability to trigger discussions. The reviewing process will be open and will be reviewed by a programme committee of experts.
Note: At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to register for the workshop and at least one day of the conference.
Submission deadline: Friday, May 10, 2013
Notification of acceptance: Monday, June 10, 2013
Camera ready submission: Monday, July 15, 2013
Workshop: Tuesday, August 27, 2013
Note that all submission deadlines are firm. All submission deadlines are 23:59:59 UTC/GMT - 11 hours (= Pago Pago, American Samoa time).
We intend to develop our workshop discussion results into a publication to be submitted for pear review, either in the way of a monograph, a journal paper, or a chapter in a handbook, aiming at the interested communities. Moreover, accepted participants will be encouraged for submitting extended versions of their paper for the possibility of producing a special issue on the workshop topic.
Note: The best paper, after an extended version, will be published in a special issue of the International Journal of Mobile HCI (IJMHCI).
