The ACM Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW 2006) conference, to be held November 4-8, 2006 in Banff, Alberta, Canada, has announced a call for papers for a mobile games workshop titled: "Mobile Multiplayer Games: Designs, Studies and Reflections." A number of researchers have used mobile multiplayer games either as a topic of study in itself or as a vehicle for more general investigations in computing, collaboration, and information. Set within the context of increasing commercial significance of both games in general and mobile games in particular, this research has used players to test interfaces, infrastructure and design concepts, and to drive new technological developments. Commercial games are appearing that take advantage of commodity mobile phones' burgeoning capabilities for interaction, awareness, and collaboration. In-depth studies of mobile multiplayer games are beginning to appear in greater numbers and growing experience of design and use opens up new possibilities for conceptual work on the mixture of media, people and environments that constitute such games. The "Mobile Multiplayer Games: Designs, Studies and Reflections" workshop aims at highlighting a broad view of this young research area, spanning and connecting system design, user studies, and theoretical reflections. The workshop will run for one day and will be limited to 16 participants. In advance of the workshop, as part of their invitation to attend, each participant will be nominated as discussant of another participant's paper. Participation is on the basis of an accepted position paper, to be sent to Matthew Chalmers from University of Glasgow ([email protected]) by September 15, 2006. Papers should be sent as PDF, in ACM CHI papers format, and limited to 4 pages with an abstract of 150 words or less. To read up on the workshop and submissions, visit the Workshop website.
