Mobile Wellbeing


Workshop at NordiCHI 2016

Call for papers


The aim of this workshop is to create connections among researchers and practitioners who work with different aspects of mobile wellbeing. We encourage submissions focusing on any aspect of one of the following three questions:

  • In what ways are mobile technologies affecting our mental wellbeing?
  • How can we design mobile technology to support and improve mobile wellbeing and mitigate negative effects?
  • What strategies and practices can be developed for using mobile technology in ways that do not harm and instead support improvement of our wellbeing?

Authors are asked to submit a four-page proposal in CHI Extended Abstracts format, that will be evaluated by the workshop organizers. At least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop and all participants have to register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the conference. Accepted position papers will be shared within the group of attendants before the workshop. Participants will be asked to prepare 5-minute presentations about their position papers as well select one of the three main questions to focus on during the workshop.

Submissions should be sent to mattias.rost@glasgow.ac.uk no later than the submission deadline. For questions, feel free to contact any of the organizers.
