Interesting directions overlapping between VMT and the computer science handheld project. -- steve

>unreliable depending on time and location. Moreover, the physical
>environment and context can change rapidly throughout the interaction
>with mobile systems and must be taken into account appropriately.

>systems and their integration in ubiquitous
>computing environments. The main objective of
>the workshop is a lively discussion and exchange
>of ideas. The scope of interest includes but is
>not limited to the following items (in no
>particular order):
>- mechanisms for location and context awareness (e.g. knowledge-based
> acquisition of contextual information, inference of location)
>- spatio-temporal issues and methods in mobile and ubiquitous
> interfaces (e.g. correlation between spatial abstractions and
> different interface modalities)
>- interaction metaphors and novel interaction devices for mobile and
> ubiquitous systems (e.g. principles of interface adaptation)
>- multi-modal interfaces for mobile and ubiquitous systems
>- user interfaces that adapt to the current situation as well as
> to resource availability (e.g. modelling the
>trade-offs between reasoning capabilities,
>resource consumption and real-time constraints)
>- plan-based approaches for interaction and adaptation
>- mechanisms for maintaining interface consistency over multiple
> devices - toolkits for the development of mobile and ubiquitous user
> interfaces
>We encourage submissions from researchers and practitioners in

>July 1, 2005: Deadline for submissions to AIMS 2005
>July 20, 2005: Notification of acceptance to authors
>July 22, 2005: Early registration deadline mobileHCI 2005
>August 10, 2005: Deadline for preparing camera-ready copies
