International Workshop on Auditory Displays for Mobile Context-Aware Systems
A workshop in conjunction with PERVASIVE 2005, 3rd International Conference on Pervasive Computing
11th of May 2005

Submission Deadline: closed
Mobile contexts are a challenge for context-aware systems. In contrast to fixed indoor contexts, the mobile context is less predictable and more dynamic. Systems that understand the context of a mobile person and his environment and adapt to it can be a great benefit for the person. Especially in a mobile context auditory displays provide a variety of possibilities.
According to the current context a mobile system can:
- use different types of auditory displays, such as mobile device speakers, personal headphones, ambient displays in rooms or public places,
- use a variety of mapping between tonal parameters and contextual parameters for audification,
- support different modes of communication from direct communication to providing awareness information.
The goal of the workshop is to address the potential of auditory displays for mobile context-aware systems. The workshop discusses different inference-models that adapt the usage of auditory displays and the type of information displayed according to the mobile context. In this workshop works from the background of the auditory display community and the ubiquitous and pervasive computing research will be presented. A moderated discussion on integrating audio displays for mobile context-aware systems will follow.
09:00 Welcome and Introduction
We invite researchers from academia and industry to submit their papers. Submissions must be in Adobe PDF format and conform to the Springer-Verlag LNCS style. We solicit papers of up to 10 pages (full) but explicitly welcome shorter papers of up to 4 pages (short) for presentation of pointed results. All paper submissions will be treated as full papers but it is important that their length is appropriate for their content.
Paper submissions have to be anonymized to facilitate double blind review. Authors should take care throughout their paper that their and their institution’s identity is not revealed. However relevant references to an author’s previous research should not be suppressed as they may be required for reviewers to understand and evaluate the paper’s contribution.
