CHI 2015 Workshop on HCI and Health


We are delighted to announce our upcoming CHI 2015 workshop

"Advancing Health and Wellness Technology Research in Home and Community Settings"

The ubiquity of mobile technology and advances in wearable health and well-being technologies offer exciting opportunities for home and community care. But are we ready for digitally enabled self-care? How can we continue to advance research that crosses methodological and cultural boundaries between Health and HCI? This workshop will bring together key researchers in HCI and Health working on digital health projects within home and community care settings to discuss the many research and methodology challenges and opportunities between the two disciplines. The outcome of the workshop will be a position paper identifying the current challenges for research in technology for home and community care and outlining what the HCI community can contribute to overcome these barriers and continue to build capacity in the crossings between HCI and health

The workshop will be held next year on Sat 18th April 2015 at CHI in South Korea and is being organised by:

Marilyn Lennon, Mobiquitous Group, University of Strathclyde
Lynne Baillie, Trustworthy Technology Group, Glasgow Caledonian University
Judy Robertson, Chair in Digital Learning, Edinburgh University
