Mobile devices are increasingly used in social networking applications and research. So far, there is little work on real-time emotion or opinion sharing in large loosely coupled user communities. One potential area of application is the assessment of widely broadcasted television TV shows. The idea of connecting non-collocated TV viewers via telecommunication technologies is referred to as Social TV. Such systems typically include set-top boxes for supporting the collaboration. In this work…

Research on Mobile HCI: Taken Out of Context?

This chapter addresses the issue of context-dependency in research on mobile human computer interaction (HCI) with an emphasis on large-scale field studies. Based on a general framework that includes

Upright or sideways?: analysis of smartphone postures in the wild

Analysis of how smartphone applications, in particular web browsers, are used on mobile phones reveals that the duration of mobile browser sessions is longer when browsers are explicitly started through the system's launcher in comparison to being launched from within another app.

Already up? using mobile phones to track & share sleep behavior

Insights into layout patterns of mobile user interfaces by an automatic analysis of android apps

A process to gain insights into mobile user interfaces on a large scale is presented and it is argued that the combinations identified not only provide insights about current mobile interfaces, but also enable the development of new optimized widgets.

Mechanisms for Understanding Participation in Online File Sharing

A social mechanism is proposed that concentrates on the actions of individuals leading up to and including their participation in a group file sharing activity, and a higher level mechanism is presented which links individual participation with exogenous forces.

MoCCha: a mobile campus app for analyzing user behavior in the field

MoCCha, a mobile campus application used not only as a subject of research, but as a research platform for a number of scientific disciplines, with the aim for ecological validity that human-subject studies in lab environments are potentially missing.

High- vs. Low-quality Video Lectures - Don't Worry, Just Put them Online!

This position paper claims that a major obstacle of offering video lectures for public universities appears to be the fact that they intend to compete with prestigious private universities regarding

Providing ICT Support to Promote Communities' Emotional Balance

Empotifeed, an ICT tool to provide decision made information, allowing them to give emotional feedback, was created using a public display to support the communication in a community and collect emotional feedback and showed that the EmotiFeed promoted the emotional balance in the community.

StoryPlace.Me: the path from studying elder communication to a public location-based video service

We describe our research path that took us from studying communication needs across distance and generations, to a small-scale study of a person-to-person location-based video service, and finally to

2nd workshop on research in the large. using app stores, wide distribution channels and big data in ubicomp research

This workshop provides a forum for researchers to exchange experiences and strategies for wide distribution of applications as well as gathering and analyzing large scale data sets.



Exploring Social TV

Both the joint TV watching experience and social presence was significantly lower for the graphic-symbols condition than for the other conditions, and neither the subjects' characterisation nor their behaviour differed significantly between the remote audio chat and the face-to-face condition.

Research in the App Store Era : Experiences from the CenceMe App Deployment on the iPhone

This paper discusses the experiences in developing, distributing and supporting CenceMe, a personal sensing application for mobile social networks, developed for the Apple iPhone and first released when the Apple App Store opened in 2008.

Examining presence and lightweight messaging in a social television experience

A field evaluation of a prototype social television system (Social TV) that incorporates lightweight messaging as well as ambient awareness of user presence on the system found participants felt constrained by the limitations of the communication options available to them and demanded free-form text or voice chat to be able to fully express themselves.

Experiences of Mass Participation in Ubicomp Research

The experience of running trials of several iPhone applications deployed in such a manner is shared, describing the findings and offering recommendations to other researchers planning to use app store-style distribution.

Good Times?!: 3 Problems and Design Considerations for Playful HCI

An analysis of how 'fun or playfulness' can be studied and designed for under mobile and ubiquitous environments using Location-aware Multimedia Messaging LMM systems as a research testbed is presented.

Of social television comes home: a field study of communication choices and practices in tv-based text and voice chat

The study of STV3, an application that adds freeform text and voice chat capabilities to the conventional television-viewing experience, is presented and it is indicated that participants overwhelmingly preferred text chat to voice chat, and that they often communicated about topics unrelated to the television content.

TuVista: meeting the multimedia needs of mobile sports fans

Improvements in TuVista II are described to address the issues identified and include rapid editing of multiple live video streams, push notifications of new content over XMPP, and an optimized metadata workflow for the content producer that reduced content publication time from fifteen minutes to less than 30 seconds.
