The WWW is facing a phenomenal growth in mobile access devices, embedded internet systems, ad-hoc interaction and wireless networking as the key enablers for the next generation internet Technological progress in mobile communication, wireless appliances and the respective mobile services lets us hypothesize that the future embedded WWW will be a digital environment that is implicitly aware of the presence of users, sensitive, adaptive and responsive to user needs, habits and emotions and ubiquitously accessible, mostly via natural interaction.

The Mobility and Wireless Access Track of WWW2002 solicits papers dealing with mobile computing and wireless access technologies that fertilate the evolution of a WWW that is based on seamless access, awareness, intelligence, and natural interaction. Seamless access refers to a situation in which we are surrounded by a multitude of wirelessly interconnected embedded systems, mostly invisible and hidden in the background of our workplace, home, or outdoor environment. Awareness refers to the ability of the system to recognise and localise objects as well as people and their intentions in a non-obtrusive and implicit way. Intelligence refers the ability of the digital environment to adapt itself to the people that live in it, learn from their behaviour, and possibly recognise intent and habit. Natural interaction finally refers to advanced modalities like natural speech- and gesture recognition, as well as speech-synthesis, which will allow to "operate" the WWW in a much more human-like communication style.

Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished, completed research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited on the following topics:
