NUIs for new worlds: new interaction forms and interfaces for mobile applications in developing countries

Jensen, Kasper Lovborg and Marsden, Gary and Cutrell, Edward and Jones, Matt and Morrison, Ann (2012) NUIs for new worlds: new interaction forms and interfaces for mobile applications in developing countries. In: 30th SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2012), 5-10 May 2012, Austin, Texas, United States.


Mobile phones constitute the most ubiquitous computing platform in the developing world, and for the past decade it has been focus of many research efforts within Human Computer Interaction for Development (HCI4D). HCI4D has matured through a series of previous HCI related conferences and workshops and a growing body of work have established it as subfield of its own [1][2][4][5][6]. We believe it is now time to focus on more specific topics within this subfield and this workshop is dedicated to one such topic; namely how the next wave of more sophisticated mobile handsets will enable new interaction forms and interfaces, and how this can be use to create more natural ways of interacting with mobile ICTs. The aim of this workshop is to discuss the current (and near-future) technologies and create a research agenda for how we can design, implement and evaluate new and more natural interaction forms and interfaces for mobile devices. The ultimate goal is to lower the technical and literacy barriers and get relevant information, applications and services out to the next billion users. © 2012 Authors.
