============Habits in Human-Computer Interaction workshop=========
==============9th September 2013===============
================Brunel University, London============
======= ======
====Register at ========

*****The last day for registrations is extended to 4th September*******

======About the workshop======

Major characteristics of our interactions with technology lie in their 
frequency and execution in stable contexts, which according to 
behavioural psychology, form crucial foundations for the development of 
habitual behaviours. Habits are currently addressed as implicit facets 
of interaction design through concepts such as consistency, 
intuitiveness and learnability. In addition research in HCI is looking 
at the breaking and rebuilding habits through the use of technology. 
This full day workshop focuses on habits in HCI contexts aiming to 
define the area and scope of research for habits in the HCI discipline.

=====Discussion Topics=====

The workshop will look to discuss:
 The nature of habits in HCI
 Application areas in which technology can be used to break and make 
habits (e.g. health/energy behaviour change)
 Methodological issues in researching habits
 Potential areas of funding and community activities


The full day workshop will take place at Brunel University on the 9th of 
September 2013.

Costs of registration for the workshop is 120
