We invite researchers and practitioners to submit their work to the poster category of MobileHCI2012.

Work that is best suited for a poster submission includes — but is not limited to — preliminary results, provoking topics, novel experiences or interactions that have not been fully tested but show great promise, summaries of small-scale studies, design explorations etc. Posters provide the opportunity for researchers to get feedback on early-stage work, discuss potential collaborations and discuss the burning issues in MobileHCI in an informal manner with the larger MobileHCI community.

Accepted submissions will be presented as a poster at the conference. Accepted Poster abstracts will be distributed in the conference proceedings on digital format. They will also be placed in ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide.

Quick Facts

Submission format: Single anonymous document containing a 6 page abstract in the ACM MobileHCI 2012 Extended Abstracts Format.

Submission deadline: May 9, 2012

Submission: Precision Conference Submission System.

Notification of acceptance: June 11, 2012

For accepted papers: Camera-ready version deadline: June 29, 2012, further instructions will follow upon acceptance.

The poster session provides participants with the opportunity to present and discuss current “work-in-progress” in an informal setting during the MobileHCI 2012. Topics of interest are the same as research topics in the MobileHCI Call for Participation.

All submissions must include an extended abstract and a draft poster. The extended abstract has a maximum limit of 6-pages, including all figures and references, and must be in the ACM MobileHCI 2012 Extended Abstracts Format. The draft poster should follow the guidelines set out later in this CfP. Both the abstract and the poster will be blind reviewed and must be anonymised — please remove names and affiliations from the first page and any other material that would allow authorship to be easily identified by the reviewers. Your abstract should be submitted by May 9, 2012 to the Precision Conference System. The submitted files must be in PDF format.

Your submission must be original work. It cannot have been published elsewhere, nor can it be under concurrent review for publication by another conference or journal. All references must be complete, accurate, accessible to the HCI public, and conform to the Conference Proceedings Publication Format. Do not cite publications that are proprietary or confidential at the time of publication.Final camera-ready versions of accepted papers therefore must be accompanied by a signed copyright form which will be provided to accepted authors.

Posters will be reviewed by members of the MobileHCI Poster Session Committee.

Upon acceptance you should prepare your poster in order to effectively communicate your research problem, techniques, results, highlighting what is novel and important about your work. For each accepted poster, at least one author must register for the MobileHCI 2012 conference. During a dedicated poster session, authors will have the opportunity to accompany their posters, present and discuss them with conference attendees.

The posters are recommended to be in A0 format (84cm x 119cm / 33 x 47), and must be in portrait orientation. Authors are expected to bring the accepted posters to the conference site with them and be present throughout the poster session.

Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference.
