The MOBILE HCI series provides a forum for academics and practitioners to discuss the challenges and potential solutions for effective interaction with mobile systems and services. It covers the design, evaluation and application of techniques and approaches for all mobile and wearable computing devices and services.
The series started in 1998 as a stand-alone Workshop on Human Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices held at The University of Glasgow and organised by Chris Johnson of Glasgow University, Scotland.
In 1999 the Second Workshop on Human Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices was held as a workshop associated with Interact 99 in Edinburgh, Scotland, and was organised by Stephen Brewster of Glasgow University and Mark Dunlop, then at Ris° Danish National Laboratory.
This format of associating with a major conference was repeated in 2001 when Mobile HCI 01 was held at the IHM-HCI 2001 conference in Lille, France and again organised by Stephen and Mark.
Following the success of the series, the meeting stepped up a gear to a stand-alone symposium for Mobile HCI 02, which was held in Pisa, Italy, under the symposium chair of Fabio Patern˛ from I.S.T.I. - C.N.R. Pisa.
In 2003, Luca Chittaro of The University of Udine took over the conference chair for Mobile HCI 03: The Fifth International Symposium on Human Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services held in Udine, Italy.
For 2004 the series returns to Scotland and to the organisation of Mark and Stephen - but this time upgraded to an international conference and held at The University of Strathclyde.
In 2005 the conference will move to Austria under the chair Manfred Tscheligi.
Each year the conference has its own website hosted by the conference chair, however the address www.mobilehci.org will always point to the next (or current) conference.
