Date & Location

MEIS'08 is a one-day workshop which takes place in München (Germany) on Thursday, Sept. 11, as part of the Conference Informatik 2008 (which is from Sept. 8-13, 2008).
It is the successor of the successful workshop MEIS'06 at the Conference Informatik 2006

Interaction with mobile devices and embedded systems has become a part of everyday life. As mobile devices get more sophisticated and embedded systems are increasingly interconnected the creation of usable interactive software poses many new challenges. Issues and opportunities arise from emerging novel paradigms in user interfaces. In particular tangible interaction, device and interfaces ecologies, and implicit interaction create new requirements for user centred design and system development.
