The official website of this year’s Mobile Pre-Conference describes the event as follows:
For 15 years, the ICA Mobile Pre-Conference has been an interdisciplinary gathering of scholars, researchers, and practitioners who focus on mobile communication research. In recent years the mobile pre-conference has been organized in the form of several interactive Blue Sky workshops. These provide a venue where scholars can present, learn and discuss their latest ideas, research and skills around a limited number of themes related to mobile communication and mobile media. In this year’s workshop, we particularly wish to provide an opportunity for graduate students and new faculty to interact with more experienced mobile researchers, thereby cultivating a supportive and integrated community of mobile scholars. Ideas discussed and presented at the mobile pre-conference have consistently nourished the theoretical and methodological foundations of mobile research, started joint research projects and eventually lead to publications in peer-reviewed journals. In addition to the Blue Sky workshops, the pre-conference features a conference lunch and dinner where scholars will interact in an informal and social atmosphere.
