Programme in English

On May 22, 2008 The Web and Beyond 2008: Mobility took place at the historical Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam. The Web and Beyond is a bi-annual conference on human-computer interaction, organised by CHI Netherlands.

The Web is in a state of motion: no longer is it primarily being accessed through PCs, but more and more does it find its way into our phones, our cars, on the streets and in buildings. And once there, the Web is interacting with us in smarter and richer ways than before.

Mobility traditionally refers to characteristics in devices to handle information access, communication and business transactions while in a state of motion. What if we place users at the center of attention? What does mobility mean to humans in a state of motion who interact with technological devices in their surroundings? The Web and Beyond 2008: Mobility explored.
