This book explains how mobile computer usability is shaped by the increasing integration of personal circumstances in organization. It represents an attempt to conceptualize an alternative model of mobile computer usability. It is motivated by the author’s conviction that we do not yet have an adequate understanding of this concept because we have not taken seriously the transformation of human personality by the co-evolution of organization and ICTs. The author argues that the transformation has resulted in a human personality whose personal and organizational activities are characterized by strong continuities between them. This characterization reflects a new kind of personality of the worker, and is a critical determinant of mobile computer usability. The word ‘organizational’ is used to describe this kind of personality – hence an alternative organizational personality perspective on mobile computer usability. This perspective suggests that a mobile computer is more usable to a person than another one because of its satisfaction of both his personal and organizational motives, which are in turn shaped by the co-evolution of organization, technology and personality.

MobileHCI is a forum for academics and practitioners to discuss the challenges and potential solutions for e?ective human-computer interaction with mobile systems and services. It covers the design, evaluation and application of te- niques and approaches for all mobile computing devices and services. MobileHCI 2004 was the sixth in the series of conferences that was started at Glasgow U- versity in 1998 by Chris Johnson. We previously chaired the conference in 1999 in Edinburgh (as part of INTERACT 1999) and in 2001 in Lille (as part of IHM-HCI 2001). The last two years saw the conference move to Italy, ?rst - der the chairmanship of Fabio Patern` o in Pisa then under Luca Chittaro in Udine. In 2005 the conference will move to Austria to be chaired by Manfred Tscheligi. Each year the conference has its own website hosted by the conference chair, however the address www. mobilehci. org will always point to the next (or current) conference. The number of submissions has increased every year. This year we received 79 full papers (63 were received last year) from which we accepted the best 25. We had 81 short papers and posters submitted (59 last year) and accepted 20 of these as short papers and 22 as posters. We received 9 workshop, 4 tutorial and 2 panel proposals, from which 5, 2 and 2, respectively, were accepted.

Roman Longoria The goal of this book is to provide a useful and timely guide to the practitioner who designs or develops mobile applications. The contributors to this book are leaders in the user interface (UI) community actively working in mobile platform technol ogy and mobile application design. Thus, this book offers the reader unique insight into the latest technologies, market trends, design ideas, and usability data. We provide the reader with the latest information that will have direct and immediate impact on a broad scope of product design decisions, including those for voice, phone, and personal digital assistant (PDA) applications. In other words, this book is written by practitioners, for practitioners. When I approached my coauthors about writing a chapter, I had only a few criteria. First, each author should have unique experience and expertise about a certain aspect of mobile applications. Second, that the authors be able to provide an introduction to the technologies with which they work. Third, that each chapter include case studies and lessons learned from empirical usability evaluations. And fourth, that each author include in the chapter some fundamental knowledge that they wish they had known when they got started designing for the mobile context.

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: ‘Es wird eine unvergessliche Erinnerung bleiben, wie wir des starken Windes wegen, in einer großen Holzkiste zu fünfen übereinandergekauert, Augen und Ohren mit gespannter Aufmerksamkeit auf den Empfangsapparat gerichtet, plötzlich nach Aufhissen des verabredeten Flaggenzeichens, das erste Ticken, die ersten deutlichen Morsezeichen vernahmen, lautlos und unsichtbar hinübergetragen von jener felsigen, nur in undeutlichen Umrissen wahrnehmbaren Küste, herübergetragen durch jenes unbekannte geheimnisvolle Mittel, den Äther, der die einzige Brücke bildet zu den Planeten des Weltalls’, Prof. Adolf Salbt, Mai 1897 als wissenschaftlicher Beobachter beim ersten Telegraphie- Experiment von Guglielmo Marconi über den 14 km breiten Bristol-Kanal. Wenn voraussichtlich im Jahr 2002 der Mobilfunk der dritten Generation (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System, UMTS) in Europa eingeführt wird, werden neue mobile handliche Endgeräte auch in der Lage sein, Multimedia- und Internet-Anwendungen zu verarbeiten. Was heute nur mit rudimentären Techniken wie WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) mit begrenzter Übertragungsrate und begrenzten Display-Anzeigen der Mobilfunkgeräte möglich ist, wird alsbald durch neue Technologien abgelöst. Mit dem Aufkommen dieser ‘neuen Generation’ von sogenannten mobilen Terminals werden jedoch gleichzeitig neue Grundlagen nötig, wie z.B. Webseiten für den mobilen Einsatz konzipiert und gestaltet werden können. Es dürfte jedem bewusst sein, dass Webseiten nicht einfach aus einem bestehenden Auftritt ‘konvertiert’ werden können, ohne sich mit den veränderten technischen Gegebenheiten und dem veränderten Nutzerverhalten näher auseinander gesetzt zu haben. Diese Arbeit soll diese neuen Veränderungen in der Technik-Mensch- Beziehung untersuchen und daraus Grundsätze ableiten, wie Webseiten im zukünftigen Mobilfunksystem der dritten Generation gestaltet werden können. Die Entwicklung von Webseiten, anders als die von Software, wird heutzutage leider immer noch ohne einen allgmeingültig formulierten Anforderungskatalog nach DIN- oder ISO-Normen durchgeführt und beschränkt sich deshalb weitestgehend auf die mehr oder minder hilfreichen Vorschläge von Website-Enwicklern und selbsternannten ‘Usability-Gurus’ (dt.: Bedienbarkeit~). Diese Arbeit geht diesen Weg nicht. Aufgrund der Ähnlichkeit zur Entwicklung von Softwareprodukten werden die dort formulierten Ergonomie-Anforderungen nach ISO 9241 als Basis zur Ableitung [...]
