As the most popular and powerful medium in the world, mobile has been reshaping not only what we do but also who we are in this mobile world. It has been widely and deeply utilized in human activities, ranging from mobile government to mobile parenting. To join international efforts in enhancing mobile for better communication, the annual Mobile Studies Summer School (MSSS) is designed to provide a unique chance for international and domestic participants to be equipped with knowledge and skills related to mobile studies, an emerging field of study. With a duration of two weeks, the intensive summer school program is designed to expose participants to different areas of mobile studies.
