Mobile phones are no longer simply a means of communication, but have gradually become supporting devices for day-to-day tasks. It is predicted that by 2020 all software will be developed for mobile devices and this implies it is necessary to explore the issues involved in the design, development, and deployment of mobile applications. The Human Aspects in Mobile Applications Engineering workshop brings together researchers from industry and academia in order to explore the challenges and opportunities presented by incorporating human aspects in mobile apps engineering.

The topics addressed by HAMAE2013 include, but are not limited to:

Empirical studies informing mobile app design
Behavioural research on the use of mobile apps
Mobile applications usability evaluation: studies and techniques
Social and cultural aspects in mobile app engineering
Studies of mobile app stores
Development models in mobile app engineering
Reports on development cycles of mobile apps
Non-functional aspects (i.e. privacy and security) in mobile app engineering
Tools and applications to support mobile app engineering
