International Workshop on Integrating Physical Activity and Health Aspects in Everyday Mobility

Call for Papers

This workshop aims to foster a community of researchers around health aspects of everyday mobility, with an interest in designing ways to facilitate adhering to health recommendations in what we call “Active Mobility”. This, e.g., involves tracking physical activities as well as spatial planning, persuasive technologies, simplifying planning and scheduling of active navigation, and exploring ways of increasing the motivation of users. The workshop aims to provide a forum to start a broad and productive discussion on identifying the main requirements of environmental, human, and technical factors for integrating health recommendations into everyday mobility. As one result we plan to formulate design guidelines for navigation systems and future forms of mobility that explicitly take health aspects into account. Such guidelines can serve as the basis for future work in the area.


Topics that are relevant to the workshop’s overall goal include, but are not limited to:

We invite researchers to submit a position paper of up to four pages (including references) using the SIGCHI Extended Abstract format (Word | LaTeX) by July 15. The contribution should address any relevant topic and be submitted in PDF format via EasyChair. The position papers will be reviewed by the workshop committee and external reviewers. Upon acceptance and notification on August 14, the position papers will be made available on the workshop website together with the explored guidelines after the workshop day on October 8. In addition, we plan to include all accepted contributions in the ACM Digital Library.
