Tutorial Proposals

Provide inspiration. Encourage others with your work.

MobileHCI 2016 continues to build on the tradition of previous conferences with a high quality tutorial program. We invite proposals for 1, 1.5 or 2 hour tutorials on emerging and established areas of research and practice. Tutorials will be held on the first day of the conference and are expected to provide participants with new insights and skills relevant to the area. A MobileHCI tutorial is an in-depth presentation of one or more state-of-the-art topics presented by researchers or practitioners within the field of Mobile HCI. The scope for tutorials is broad and includes topics such as new technologies, research approaches and methodologies, design practices, user/consumer insights, investigations into new services/applications/interfaces, and much more. A tutorial should focus on its topic in detail and include references to the "must read" papers or materials within its domain. A participatory approach in which the tutorial participants actively engage in exercises is welcomed, though not required. In addition we welcome proposals incorporating hands-on work where the outcome is a working prototype. The expected audience will vary in terms of prior knowledge, but will largely consist of researchers, PhD students, practitioners, and educators.

Important Dates:

Use the SIGCHI extended abstracts format for your proposal, max 4 pages. Accepted submissions will be included in the ACM Digital Library as part of the MobileHCI 2016 Adjunct Proceedings. The biographies of the instructors can go to the 5th page.

Send a PDF version of your tutorial proposal directly to the Tutorial Chairs at tutorials@mobilehci2016.acm.org .

The Tutorials Chairs will evaluate all proposals and communicate acceptance decisions to the proposers. Accepted tutorial proposals will be included in the main conference proceedings.

Tutorial presenters will receive a modest honorarium as a token of appreciation.
