CALL FOR PAPERS: From Mobile to Wearable — Using Wearable Devices to Enrich Mobile Interaction
Workshop@MobileHCI 2015, August 24th
Copenhagen, Denmark



In the last decades, mobile phones have turned into sensor-rich devices that use different built-in sensors such as accelerometers or gyroscopes. The sensors have enriched the interaction possibilities, allowing, for example, gestural interaction. With the prevalence of wearable devices and peripherals, such as fitness bracelets and breast straps, the input and output possibilities can be further extended with both new sensors and actuators. Current applications could benefit from them, and entirely new applications could be designed. The design space for new applications needs to be identified, which will again drive advances in mobile and wearable computing. This workshop sets focus on wearable devices as means to enrich smartphones and their interaction capabilities. We will discuss the new design space and generate ideas of new applications. Furthermore, we will provide sensors and actuators allowing the participants to implement rapid prototypes of their novel application ideas. Note that at least one author of accepted papers needs to register for the workshop and for the conference itself.
