Contextualising Mobile Presence with Digital Images

Satchell, Christine (2006) Contextualising Mobile Presence with Digital Images. In PICS 2006: Workshop on Pervasive Image Capture and Sharing - Ubicomp, 18th September 2006, California.


A series of Swarm mobile phone prototypes have been developed in response to the user needs identified in a three-year empirical study of young people’s use of mobile phones. The prototypes take cues from user led innovation and provide multiple avatars that allow individuals to define and manage their own virtual identity. This paper briefly maps the evolution of the prototypes and then describes how the pre-defined, color coded avatars in the latest version of the Swarm are being given greater context and personalization through the use of digital images.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
