Horizon host workshop at Ubicomp 2014

HomeSys 2014: Call for Participation

Research Fellow Tim Coughlan and Transitional Fellow Richard Mortier from Horizon along with colleagues from Newcastle and Lougborough, will host a one day workshop called HomeSys, at the ACM Ubicomp 2014 Conference in Seattle, Washington, USA on the 13th of September 2014.

Homesys 2014

HomeSys 2014 will provide an inspiring and constructive venue for researchers whose work focuses on technology in domestic settings. The workshop will combine presentations, panel and small group discussions, in order to reflect upon, and further develop the agenda of research around home-based technologies. Now the fourth event in this workshop series, HomeSys 2014 invites researchers across disciplines, and from industry or academia to submit work that pushes the boundaries of technology in the home in areas such as new technical advancements, forms of data capture or analysis, novel designs and design methods, user-centred studies and ethnographies. We welcome work that highlights the diversity in the characteristics of homes, and submissions connected to societal issues such as food, energy, or waste in the home.


Accepted papers will be given a presentation slot during the workshop, and will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part of the UbiComp 2014 adjunct proceedings. More information about submitting your work is available here.

Important Dates:

  • Deadline for submissions: 23rd May 2014.
  • Feedback and notification: 13th June 2014
  • Camera ready deadline for ACM Digital Library: 1st  July 2014
