CALL FOR JOURNAL PAPERS IN PERSONAL AND UBIQUITOUS COMPUTING: SPECIAL ISSUE
ON EXTREME NAVIGATION
Guest editors: David McGookin (University of Glasgow) Charlotte Magnusson (University of Lund)
Location-based data and services for geographical and navigational information (such as electronic maps and gps directions), are usually presented using visual displays. With the increasing complexity of information, and the variety of contexts of use, it becomes important to consider how other non-visual sensory channels, such as audition and touch, can be used to communicate necessary and timely information to users. Activities such as running, rock-climbing and cycling, are all examples of activities where navigational and geographical information may be needed, but where the visual modality is unsuitable. Additionally, there are a number of user groups such as visually impaired people and the emergency services, who also require non-visual access to geo-data. This workshop will provide a forum for sharing research ideas and findings about new interaction and perceptualization metaphors, novel application contexts, multimodal and context-aware technologies for mobility -- thereby creating a solid foundation for further exploration of pervasive extreme navigation.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:
Sensing and applying user context to navigation and wayfinding
Multimodal techniques to augment visual map displays
Multimodal navigation systems for extreme sports
Multimodal navigation systems for runners
Multimodal systems for rescue workers
Navigation systems for "eyes-busy" activities
Wearable technology and textiles for navigation
Environmental awareness for Disabilities and Visual Impairment.
User requirements capture/user involvement for non visual design
