Submission deadline for full papers and notes: Feb 17th 2012

Notification to authors: April 27th 2012

Camera-ready version: June 15th 2012

Notes offer a focused contribution to the research program. Notes are not work-in-progress reports but offer completed, rigorously researched/developed work that makes a significant contribution to the field of MobileHCI. Notes may contribute to any of the areas listed as the main topic areas of the MobileHCI conference. Notes are likely to have a smaller scope of contribution than full papers, but their contribution is expected to be a solid contribution to the field. For example, notes on applications may not cover the entire iterative design cycle (observation, design, implementation, evaluation, etc.) but may instead go into depth in specific areas. Notes may offer details of a design process, an evaluation, an implementation, technical discovery, etc. Notes are expected to cite work that is directly relevant to their content but do not need to fulfill the breadth and depth of coverage required by long papers.

Notes must be anonymized and no more than 4 pages long, including figures, references, and appendices. Notes should contain an abstract of no more than 150 words that clearly states the paper's contribution to the MobileHCI field. Submitted PDFs must be no larger than 4 megabytes. Papers should be prepared using the MobileHCI 2012 Archive Format. Please read the Submission and Formatting instructions for detailed information on how your short paper should be written and formatted and to access the template. Authors may also submit illustrative videos to accompany their papers. These should be uploaded as additional files. Videos cannot exceed 40 megabytes.

Authors must provide a 30 word contribution and benefits statement for their paper. A contribution/benefit statement describes the contribution made by the paper to Mobile HCI and the benefit that readers can gain from reading the paper. The contributions and benefit statements must be entered when the paper is submitted as a separate file, and will be seen and assessed by reviewers along with the paper. This statement should also be appended as an additional page of your PDF file with no other content on this page.

Notes undergo a rigorous review process, managed by the Program Chairs and a committee of meta-reviewers. 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. Final camera-ready versions of accepted Notes must be accompanied by a signed copyright form.

Accepted Notes will be distributed in the conference proceedings in digital format. They will also be placed in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide.
