Intelligent Notification and Attention Management on Mobile Devices

This workshop will investigate approaches towards smart attention management systems. We will discuss the fundamental challenges of smart notifications and the design of proactive notification mechanisms. We invite submissions that focus on the understanding of users and their current, mobile information handling.

Organizers: Dominik Weber, University of Stuttgart; Alexandra Voit, University of Stuttgart; Anja Exler, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology; Svenja Schröder, University of Vienna; Matthias Böhmer, TH Köln; Tadashi Okoshi, Keio University.

Machine Learning with TensorFlow for Mobile and Ubiquitous Interaction

One key feature of TensorFlow includes the possibility to compile the trained model to run efficiently on mobile phones. This enables a wide range of opportunities for researchers and developers. In this tutorial, we teach attendees two basic steps to run neural networks on a mobile phone: Firstly, we will teach how to develop neural network architectures and train them in TensorFlow. Secondly, we show the process to run the trained models on a mobile phone.

Organizers: Huy Viet Le, Sven Mayer and Niels Henze; University of Stuttgart, Germany.

Reading The Mobile Brain: From Laboratory To Real-World Electroencephalography

It is increasingly viable to measure the brain activity of mobile users, as they go about their everyday business in their natural world environment. This is due to: (i) modern signal processing methods, (ii) lightweight and cost-effective measurement devices, and (iii) a better, albeit incomplete, understanding of how measurable brain activity relates to mental processes. Here, we address how brain activity can be measured in mobile users and how this contrasts with measurements obtained under controlled laboratory conditions.
