WWW2002 Workshop On
May 7, 2002
Call for Papers and Participation
The dramatic increase in the use and availability of mobile devices such as cellular phones and Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) in the last few years has resulted in the ability to access information anytime and anywhere. IDC, a leading provider of technology intelligence, forecasts that by the end of 2002 there will be more wireless subscribers capable of Internet access than wired Internet users. Yet, we are still far from the dream of having Web information as conveniently accessible from a handheld device as it is from our desktop. Existing information discovery mechanisms for searching and browsing the Web are not well-suited to mobile devices which are limited in terms of processing power and memory, screen real estate, input capabilities, networks and bandwidth.
In this workshop, we will explore several issues involved in making mobile search both practical and effective and investigate the various challenges imposed in attempting to bring search to the mobile world. Topics may include:
Send by email to Aya Soffer- email: email@example.com
A position paper of no more than 2000 words (not including references) in PDF or postscript format. The position paper should also indicate to which category among the following it belongs.
Working notes of the workshop which contain all research and position
papers will be distributed to participants at the workshop and, with the
permission of the authors, made available on the Web. If there is interest
among the attendees, we may publish an edited volume after the workshop.
