Welcome to the first workshop on Delivering User Centred Mobile Design

Workshop webpage: http://ducmd11.offis.de/

When designing mobile interfaces it is certainly important to consider the users’ needs and intended experience. However, it is also vital to understand the needs of other stakeholders to ensure the delivery of user centred mobile designs. Translating and communicating the mobile user requirements to stakeholders and ensuring best practice is adhered to can be problematic. This workshop aims to bring practitioners and academics together to discuss methodologies to help overcome these problems and other commercial limitations and deliver quality user centred mobile designs. The workshop builds on the outcomes of ‘Observing Mobile User Experience’ workshop held at NordiCHI 2010.


By combining practitioners with academic researchers and mobile industry experts, this workshop provides a valuable opportunity to engage in rich applied discussions and formulate possible solutions to implementation issues. This workshop addresses a common HCI theme of how to ensure the design that is delivered is what the user needs and wants. This is applied research in its most applied state – finding ways for academia to assist industry get quality results.
