MobEA VI - Personal Rich Social Media

Collocated with WWW2008 conference

Aim and Scope

             2008 will be the "Mobile Eureka! Moment". With the Olympics

midst of this mobile revolution. Mobile Web Initiative spearheaded by
W3C is making a strong stand on how to realize the vision of pervasive
mobile computing. Three screen services (TV, PC, Phone) are demanding
new architectures to be developed. Furthermore, the need to go beyond
technology, demands an embrace of the human-centric aspects of mobile
computing. The objective of this workshop is to provide a single forum
for researchers, sociologists, and technologists to discuss the
state-of-the-art, present their contributions, and set future directions
in Personal applications for mobile users with a focus in rich social
media. W3C has started a number of initiatives along the direction of
Mobile Web Best Practices, Device Description Working Group, Device
