What is a MobileHCI Tutorial?

MobileHCI tutorials are in-depth presentations of state-of-the-art topics presented by researchers or practitioners within the field of MobileHCI. The tutorials empower attendees to learn new skills and offer possibilities to meet new people that share the same interest. 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 please include:

  • the title of the tutorial
  • length of the tutorial: half-day or full-day
