*** Call for Papers ***

******** Second Mobile Accessibility Workshop ********

to be held at MobileHCI 2012
San Francisco, CA, USA, September 21, 2012

http://mobile-accessibility.di.fc.ul.pt/


Mobile devices pervade our daily lives. We are on the cusp of a fundamental change in how we relate to information and others, accessible at all times and places. Alas, this change might be barred to a large number of people, suffering from a wide range of disabilities. Mobile devices are increasingly visual, making them hard to use by the blind or other vision-impaired people. Keyboards are steadily being replaced by touchscreens, without tactile feedback, introducing additional barriers. Tetraplegic users have limited mobility of their limbs and hardly are able to pick up the devices or use their fingers for precise pointing. Moreover, the mobile aspect often creates situational impairments where those interaction modes are cumbersome or socially unacceptable, even for non-impaired people.

These are problems studied by the nascent area of Mobile Accessibility, where researchers focus on solving accessibility problems in mobile devices and settings. Bringing together Mobile Computing and Accessibility, it is the source of synergistic works that have the potential of deeply transforming how we look at mobile devices, and to shape the on-going mobile revolution. In the wake of a successful first edition in 2011, this Second Workshop on Mobile Accessibility will bring together researchers and practitioners in the area.

The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

  * Mobile interaction accessibility
  * Situational impairments
  * Assistive Mobile Technologies
  * Mobile Web Accessibility
  * Accessible Mobile Games
  * Designing Mobile Accessibility
  * Designing for multiple contexts and a variety users
  * Design Mobile for all


** Important Dates **

  May 18th. Submission deadline
  June 15th. Notification to authors
  July 6th. Final versions due.
  September 21st. Workshop

  2012-13. Special Issue publication


** Paper Submissions **

Papers should have a maximum of 8 pages using the LNCS format (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs), and be submitted online at https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=mobacc2012. The review process will be double-blind, so please remove all affiliation information from your submissions, as well as any other information that might be used to identify the paper's authors.


** Publication **

As for the first edition of the Workshop, authors of selected accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the Universal Access in the Information Society journal for a Special Issue in Mobile Accessibility.
