In a Mobile Living Lab, mobile devices are used to evaluate concepts and prototypes in real-life settings. In other words, the lab is brought to the people. This workshop provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to share experiences and issues with methods and tools for Mobile Living Labs. In particular, we seek to bring together people who have applied methods for Mobile Living Labs and people who build tools for those methods.The aim of the workshop is twofold. First, to make an up-to-date overview of current methods and tools for conducting user studies in Mobile Living Labs -- highlighting their individual strengths and weaknesses. Second, to uncover challenges that are not adequately addressed by current methods and tools and to come up with ideas and requirements that could fill this gap thus serving as beacons for further research and development in this area.
