Abstract: Text entry is a culture preserving device and therefore of tremendous importance for our society. As a consequence, it is not surprising that the art of designing new text entry methods has been practiced for hundreds of years. Text entry methods are currently being designed for mobile phones, video games, wall-sized displays, surfaces, wearable computers, and for augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices that help users with communication difficulties to speak. Another active research area is support for non-Western languages. However, these research efforts are today scattered across multiple communities, such as human-computer interaction (HCI), augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), speech recognition, human factors, and accessible computing. There is a need to reach out and (re)connect all these communities together so that we can inspire and learn from each other. The goal of this workshop is to bring text entry researchers from multiple disciplines together to discuss cross-disciplinary topics of relevance for text entry.
