Welcome to the site for the CHI 2009 Workshop: Mobile User Experience Research: Challenges, Methods & Tools

Update: we posted video clips of participants' presentations around the themes that emerged

Aim of the Workshop:
The main goal of the workshop was to bring together researchers from industry and academia, designers, and creators of mobile research tools to discuss methods, tools and infrastructure for mobile UX and HCI research. To achieve this goal, we:
  • Provided a forum for participants to share past experiences, success stories, failures and associated learnings, as well as recurring problems;
  • Jointly prioritized these;
  • Mapped out the dimensions required of mobile research tools, and translate some of these into draft requirements and low-fidelity prototypes for novel research tools.
