      Call for Papers for the 3rd International Workshop on
        Mobile Interaction with the Real World (MIRW 2008)  
 A Workshop of the MobileHCI 2008 Conference - September 2, 2008


Workshop at MobileHCI 2008 (September 02-05 2008)

Amsterdam, the Netherlands

The Mobile HCI community is moving beyond the interaction between a single
user and her mobile device taking the users environment into account. Mobile
interaction with the real world concentrates on using mobile devices as
tools to interact with real world objects. This workshop continues the
successful mobile interaction with the real world workshops 2006 and 2007.
Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) mobile interaction with the
real world; mobile devices as user interfaces for terminals; and Frameworks,
middleware and  APIs for the development of applications that take mobile
interactions with the real world into account. The workshop combines
technical presentations with the presentation of prototypes and focused
discussions to drive interaction between participants.

Possible topics for the workshop include (but are not limited to): 
- Mobile interaction with real world objects and smart objects
- Using mobile devices as user interfaces for terminals and vending machines
- Frameworks, middleware, architectures and APIs for mobile interactions
with the real world
- Guidelines for mobile interactions with the real world
- Automatic user interface generation for real world interactions
- Semantic web within mobile applications and interactions
- Multimodal interaction taking mobile devices into account
- Usage of sensors of mobile devices (camera, microphone, GPS, etc.) for
pervasive applications
- Interaction metaphors for pervasive applications and services
- Augmented, virtual and mixed reality on mobile phones and PDAs (tracking,
markers, visualisation)
- Portable media players (e.g. iPod Video) and personal servers as mobile
interaction devices
- Interactive context-aware services on mobile devices
- People with special needs interacting with the real world
- User experience, user studies
- Applications and scenarios

The main goal of the workshop is to develop an understanding of how mobile
devices can be used to interact with the real world. We seek for new ideas,
prototypes, and insights as basis to develop a deeper understanding of the
field. We will provide a forum to share information, results, and ideas on
current research in this area. This workshop encourages discussion about
future topics concerning mobile interaction with the real world. Furthermore
we aim to develop new ideas on how mobile devices can be exploited for new
forms of interaction with the environment. We will bring together
researchers and practitioners who are concerned with design, development,
and implementation of new applications and services using personal mobile
devices as user interfaces.

Workshop Format
The workshop will feature presentation of research results, ongoing work,
ideas, concepts, and critical questions related to mobile interaction with
the real world. Every presentation will be followed by a corresponding
discussion. Furthermore we invite the presenters to show their demonstrators
during their presentation and in the breaks.

Participation & Process
The number of participants will be limited to 25 people. Prospective authors
are invited to submit their contribution, in PDF format conform to the ACM
Mobile HCI 2008 proceedings template electronically via the workshop's
website (http://mirw08.offis.de) no later than May 5, 2008. Papers should
have a length of about 4 pages. Every submitted paper will be reviewed by at
least two reviewers.

The proceedings of MIRW 2008 will be published as a technical report of the
University of Oldenburg. The workshops proceedings will also be made
available online and distributed electronically at the conference on a CD or
memory stick. MIRW 2008 will provide also printed proceedings for the
participants of the workshop.
