Short papers must be anonymized and no more than 4 pages long, including figures, references, and appendices. Short papers must contain an abstract that is less than 150 words long and clearly states the Paper’s contribution to the MobileHCI field. Submitted PDFs must be no larger than 4 megabytes. Please read the ACM MobileHCI2010 Format for detailed information on how your short paper should be written and formatted.

Short papers are much more focused and succinct contributions to the research program and are likely to have a smaller scope of contribution than full papers. For example, short papers on applications may not cover the entire iterative design cycle (observation, design, implementation, evaluation, etc.) but may instead go into depth in specific areas. Short papers are not expected to include a discussion of related work that is as broad and complete as that of a submission to the full papers venue.

Authors must develop a 30 word contribution and benefits statement for their short paper. A contribution/benefit statement describes the contribution made by the short paper to MobileHCI and the benefit that readers can gain from it. This statement will be entered when the short paper is submitted, and will be seen and assessed by reviewers along with the short paper. This statement should also be appended as an additional page of your PDF file with no other content on this page.

Short papers undergo a rigorous review process, managed by the Program chair and a committee of meta-reviewers. Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference. Final camera-ready versions of accepted short papers must be accompanied by a signed copyright form.

Accepted Short Papers will be distributed in the conference proceedings in digital format. They will also be placed in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide.
