UPDATE: Deadline has been extended to May 27th! 

Welcome! We're excited to be organizing a workshop on the use of mixed methods in the design of mobile technologies for MobileHCI in Florence. Please check out the Call For Participation to get details about how to participate, the Hosts page for information about the organizers, and the Schedule page to get a sense of what we'll be doing during the workshop. 

Mixed methods are commonly used within HCI, reflecting the field's many contributing disciplines. While there is a rich literature on mixed methodology in the social sciences, particularly education, health, and evaluation, HCI researchers have engaged little with this literature or its resulting frameworks for mixed methods research design. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in industry and academia who practice mixed methods for mobile technology design in order to formalize the processes that we have used with success, to document our challenges, and to make recommendations for designing mixed methods research in the subdiscipline. 

We will accomplish these goals with a number of hands-on activities designed to share participants’ individual expertise, challenge pre-conceived notions, and later converge on a set of frameworks.
