User Interfaces and Mobile Web

The Web browser, both on desktop computers and mobile devices, has become the face of cyberspace. As new uses of the Internet are invented and network bandwidth improves, Web user interfaces will need to evolve towards offering richer interactive experiences. At the same time, the population of users seeking access to the Web is growing more diverse, requiring innovative software with intuitive interfaces that will meet the needs of all, not just skilled users.

A number of key technologies and applications are therefore driving browser development. For example, the Web is moving off the desktop and into mobile phones, embedded devices and large shared displays. Delivering a satisfying experience across this variety of radically diverse platforms and form factors remains a major challenge.

In particular, the design of effective search interfaces is critical for the support of this emerging diversity. Collaboration tools that allow Web users new ways to communicate and interact, such as communities of trust, social networks or blogs, provide opportunities for novel applications. These applications will only thrive if user interfaces evolve appropriately. Extending these tools to the Mobile domain requires an extra layer of complexity, and an understanding of the human-centric and social aspects of mobile computing, as well as the special technical pitfalls of mobile operation.

The User Interfaces and Mobile Web track at WWW2009 will provide a forum where both researchers and practitioners can share new approaches, applications, experimental results, and explore how to make Web access ever more ubiquitous. We invite original papers describing theoretical or experimental research including (but not limited to) the following topics:
