General Information
MobileHCI 2018 continues to build on the tradition of previous conferences with a high quality tutorial program. We invite proposals for tutorials that are held half day or full day on September 3rd. Goal is to provide a set of tutorials that balances emerging and established areas of research and practice.
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.

Preparing the Submission:
In your proposal, include:

  • the title of the tutorial
  • length of the tutorial: half day or full day
  • learning goals of the tutorial
  • the intended audience(s)
  • the covered topics and the depths to which you will cover them
  • activities that attendees will engage in
  • overview of the materials provided to the participants
  • a brief biography of the instructor(s)

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 2018 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 Final submissions of accepted course descriptions will be managed in PCS.

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. A tutorial will not be held if it has less than 10 participants. Full day tutorial instructors receive a compensation (free registration to the conference).
