The primary focus of our workshop is to challenge the expanding text entry community to move beyond the mobile phone and start exploring novel and emerging technologies, designing systems for non-traditional users, and expand into unexplored domains and contexts of use. We hope to engage in setting a new agenda for our research community through the identication, collection, and presentation of text entry edge cases. As such, our workshop has two specic foci. First, to strengthen the text entry community by bringing text entry researchers working in various disciplines together in hopes of sharing knowledge across disciplines and establishing a set of best practices that can be used to build our community. Second, to set a research agenda around these edge cases that can be used to drive the eld forwards and unite the eld in a common direction so that our combined eorts can help bring novel and impactful text entry solutions to new and emerging technologies as well as underserved communities of users and research domains.
