Workshop: Re-imagining Commonly Used Mobile Interfaces for Older Adults

We are delighted to announce that Professor Jutta Trevarinus of the Inclusive Design Research Centre at OCAD University, Toronto will deliver a keynote talk at this workshop. We hope you can join us.

Re-imagining Commonly Used Mobile Interfaces for Older Adults

workshop AT olderadults.mobi

September 23, 2014, Toronto, Canada

Call for Papers

Many countries have an increasingly ageing population. In recent years, mobile technologies have had a massive impact on social and working life. As the older adult population rises, many people will want to continue professional, social and lifestyle usage of mobiles into their 70s and beyond. Mobiles support community involvement and personal independence, but the ageing process can interfere considerably with their usage, e.g. through changes in vision, attention, and motor control. This workshop will bring together researchers who are re-imagining mobile interfaces so that they are more suited for use by older adults.

Position papers are sought related to topics including, but not limited to:

  • Multimodal interaction with older adults
  • Mobile input and visual interaction with older adults
  • Older adults and ubiquitous computing
  • Participatory design process for older adults
  • Mobile interface evaluation with older adults
  • Novel physical interaction for older adults
  • The effect and implications for mobile design of the ageing process
  • Interdisciplinary perspectives on mobile design for older adults
Position papers should be 4 pages in CHI extended abstract format. Accepted papers will be presented as posters or short talks, with plenty of time for discussion and demos. Authors will be invited to extend for a special issue of the International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction.

Abstract Submission Deadline: July 11th 2014
Notification of Acceptance: 24th July 2014
Workshop: 23rd September 2014

Submissions should be made to: submissions AT olderadults.mobi
