Trust in home: rethinking interface design in the Internet of Things (THRIDI) – call for partcipants

THRIDI is a research project which aims to foster collaboration within an interdisciplinary community in the area of user-friendly interfaces for Internet of Things (IoT) devices and systems in smart home settings.

The starting point for THRIDI will be an online workshop on 19-20th November,  which we are organising with our colleagues at Brunel University.

The workshop will provide an opportunity to define the scope, approaches and priorities for future research, and also to highlight research and industry interests that can lead to further collaboration.  We are delighted to announce our expert speakers: Prof Abigail Durrant (Professor of Interaction Design, Newcastle), Dr Lachlan Urquhart (Lecturer in Technoology Law, Edinburgh) and Dr Poonam Yadav (Lecturer in Computer Science, York).

Colleagues from all career stages (including PhD students) and all relevant fields (IoT, HCI, design, sociology and law) are most welcome to join the workshop.

With the support from the EPSRC Human-Data Interaction NetworkPlus within the theme of IoT, System Design, and the Law, we are able to offer participants of the workshop a £50 e-voucher.
