Object Recognition for Input and Mobile Interaction

Organisers: Hui-Shyong Yeo, Gierad Laput, Nicholas Gillian, Aaron Quigley

This workshop brings together researchers active and interested in the areas of object recognition for input for mobile interaction to share approaches and experiences, identify research and deployment challenges, and envision the next generation of applications that rely on widely deployed sensor systems.

The UX of IoT: Unpacking the Internet of Things

Organiser: Scott Jenson

The Internet of Things is technology, not user driven. This workshop will: 1) Discuss ways to better analyze IoT use cases 2) List UX sub-goals (e.g., configuration) that must be solved for the broader concept of IoT to work. If we can't talk about IoT in a more nuanced way, we'll never improve it.

NatureCHI – Unobtrusive User Experiences with Technology in Nature

Organisers: Jonna Hakkila, Ashley Colley, Keith Cheverst, Simon Robinson, Johannes Schöning, Nicola Bidwell, Felix Kosmalla

Mobile technologies such as sports tracking, tourist guides, mobile phone integrated cameras and social media access have potential to both enhance and disrupt user’s experience of nature. The NatureCHI workshop focuses on the challenges and opportunities of interactive technologies in nature.

Mobile Interaction With and In Autonomous Vehicles

Organisers: Alexander Meschtscherjakov, Manfred Tscheligi, Rod McCall, Andreas Riener, Philippe Palanque

We discuss: What can we learn from mobile HCI for the interaction design between drivers and autonomous vehicles? What opportunities for mobile HCI arise due to freedoms for drivers, when they take on the role of passengers in autonomous vehicles?

MobileHRI: The 4th PubRob Workshop on Public Space Human-Robot Interaction

Organisers: Mary Ellen Foster, Manuel Giuliani, Ron Petrick

This workshop will bring together researchers from Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) and MobileHCI to explore issues of mutual interest. The programme will include a tutorial-style introduction to HRI, invited talks, lightning talks from workshop participants, and an opportunity for extended discussion.

New Directions in Self-Quantification for Behavior Change

Organisers: Elisabeth Kersten - van Dijk, Naomi Jacobs, Heleen Rutjes, Marc Hassenzahl, Evangelos Karapanos, Boris De Ruyter, Wijnand Ijsselsteijn

The Quantified Self envisions self-improvement through data, but use of Quantified Self technologies is not necessarily so straightforward, nor without complications. In this workshop we will compile an interdisciplinary, critical perspective on the use of self-quantification for behavior change.

Hands-On Shaping Shape-Changing Devices

Organisers: Deepak Sahoo, Timothy Neate, Jennifer Pearson, Laurence Nigay, Jason Alexander, Matt Jones

Through rapid physical prototyping, we will explore the practical efficacy of using shape changing mobile devices in personal and collaborative environments, and identify key areas of future mobile device design.
