Call for Abstracts
As smartphones and tablets become more and more popular with visitors, science communication professionals face multiple challenges in designing and evaluating interactive mobile experiences around these devices.
This 2012 ECSITE Pre-Conference Workshop “Designing Interactive Mobile Experiences”, which will take place at the Cité de l’Espace, Toulouse, France on the 30th May 2012, will focus on deploying moobile applications as part of exhibitions and educational programmes by presenting examples developed in various science centres. Furthermore, workshop participants will be able to exchange their experience, to discuss experimental projects, and to test prototypes.
We welcome the submission of abstracts (up to 250 words) for presentations (20 minutes long)
- Describe original experience on mobile application development (using smartphones or tablets) for science centres and museum visitors
- Focus on methodology, user requirement approach, scenario development, usability, evaluation.
The 1st User Group Workshop, held on Wednesday June 8, 2011 at the Acropolis Museum, was an outstanding success. More than 30 invited participants from various museums and institutions all over Greece and from the CHESS Consortium actively participated in lively "persona" and scenario building & brainstorming activities.
We will keep the momentum going and meet again next year in June at the Cite de l'Espace!
