This workshop aims to provoke thoughts about the future of mobile interfaces. Participants will be given a chance to present their ideas and create new concepts as part of a participatory activity. They will also engage in a conversation looking at what the future holds and how research can be shaped in the coming years.

Mobile user interfaces have always been constrained to the shape of the mobile devices and the limitations due to the size of the display. However in recent years, we have seen the emergence of devices with new form factors, including foldable screens or even vibro-tactile displays. These new devices include various sensors allowing for novel types of input and outputs with the mobile technologies. This workshop will address innovations in terms of interaction with mobile and wearable devices, as well as with the applications they enable.

This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners to explore the future of mobile user interfaces. We expect to discuss issues around design, software and hardware and leverage everyone’s expertise to bring up potential solutions for effective interaction with mobile devices. We will encourage the exchange of research results, ideas and future research endeavors.
