Information and communication technologies (ICT), including artificial intelligence, internet of things, and mobile applications, can be utilized to tackle important societal challenges, such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. While they may increase societal resilience, their design, functionality, and underlying infrastructures must be resilient against disruptions caused by anthropogenic, natural and hybrid crises, emergencies, and threats. In order to research challenges, designs and potentials of interactive technologies, the second iteration of the workshop investigates the space of mobile technologies and resilient systems for crisis response, including the application domains of cyber threat and pandemics response.

Cycling is absolutely in trend, not only for health reasons but also as a major contribution to future sustainable mobility. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss and explore the design space and interaction methods for technological augmentation of bicycles. The workshop will achieve this goal through invited talks, demos, brainstorming sessions and prototyping activities. The workshop various cycling tours to promote outdoor discussions about development of new technologies and research direction by exploring the design space of different cycling areas. The workshop is connected to a SIGCHI summer school on HCI Cycling, which will take place before the conference. We expect that in addition to open submissions to the workshop, the participants of the summer school will submit their results and design space explorations to the workshop.

Speech-based technology has evolved dramatically over the last few years with ongoing progress. Today’s speech-based technology has become some kind of companion system. From a psychological perspective, the ability to speak has been a unique human feature until recently. With speech-based technology adopting these principles, human-technology interaction resembles human-human interaction to an increasing extent. Consequently, besides the well-established scientific perspectives in the field (data and engineering science, psychology), disciplines, which have established a treasure of knowledge on humans and their “functional principles” are becoming valuable sources of knowledge (e.g. social sciences, humanities). The present workshop wants to (1) connect researchers from various scientific fields to (2) collect theoretical and methodological approaches potentially relevant for the analysis and the understanding of speech-based technology and to (3) analyze possible conceptual and methodological overlaps. To account for the limited body of literature in this area, the workshop focuses on (4) a written synopsis of the different scientific perspectives on speech-based technology.

Workshops proposals should include:
The selection will be curated by the workshops chairs. Please note that for workshop proposals of comparable quality, preference will be given to workshops containing discussion, interactive sessions and a diverse organisation team.
Workshops are not submitted anonymously, i.e. instructors do not remove their names and affiliations from their submission materials.
Accepted workshop submissions will be included in the ACM Digital Library as part of the MobileHCI 2021 Adjunct Proceedings. ACM will send you a copyright form, which you have to complete. Once completed, ACM will provide you the copyright information to be put into your paper. You can then submit the camera-ready version (including the copyright notice) through the submission system. The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library.
Please keep the following responsibilities in mind when submitting a workshop proposal:
During the workshop, organisers are responsible for facilitating discussion, maintaining productive interaction, and encouraging participation. The emphasis should be on group discussion, rather than on presentation of individual papers. Diversity of perspectives should be encouraged.
If your workshop will be seeking and accepting submissions: the collection of papers, review process and possible publishing of the workshop proceedings are up to workshops organisers to set up. Workshop chairs can help suggest different services to handle the process.
These are the tentative deadlines aligned with the conference deadlines. We encourage you to use them.
Camera-ready: 30 June, 2021
Because of the ever evolving situation with covid-19 and the difficulties of running a physical in-person conference, all workshops will be virtual. We are currently working hard on how to make this a great experience. More information will be provided closer to the time of the event. If you have any special requests for virtual tools you would like to use during your worksop write to workshop chairs.
