CDT student publishes first PhD paper at LBS2021

Congratulations to our second year CDT student James Williams on the publication of his first PhD paper at the 16th Conference on Location Based Services (LBS2021).

LBS2021 brought together researchers, industry, and students from various disciplines whose work is focused on or related to Location Based Services. This conference provided a common ground to connect, interact, and share knowledge, experience, plans, and thoughts on how LBS can and should be improved, as well as how it will impact science and society.

LBS2021 was held online and hosted more than 215 participants from all over the world, contributing with high-quality presentations and inspiring discussions.

Congratulations to James and colleagues!

Abstract

In this paper we present a work in progress analysis of a leisure
walking behaviour survey that focuses on walkers’ habits and experiences.
We are specifically interested in the use of mobile tracking applications in
this context to help design and deploy future technologies that can better
support engaging leisure walks through synthesising previous behaviours
and experiences. This survey collected 329 responses relating to self-reported
walking behaviour patterns and mobile activity tracker use. In the
emerging analysis we identified design considerations for future walking focused
applications, emphasizing the subjective and personal nature of
walking routes.
