We have extended the submission deadline for our workshop to Friday 24th
January. Come along to think about the ways technology can take into
account our biological rhythms!

We are constantly changing. Every week. Every day. Every minute. Our bodies
coordinate many physiological and mental changes to help us adapt to our
environment. As a consequence of these fluctuations, we can be more suited
to certain types of activities at specific times of the day. Disruptions of
our rhythms can have serious impacts on our sleep, productivity, and
well-being. In spite of these natural fluctuations, the technologies we use
to work and to communicate respond identically throughout the day to our
interactions. However, a new class of technologies has emerged that takes
our biological rhythms into account.

This interactive workshop will bring together researchers interested in
designing technologies to support biological rhythms. We invite
participants from a range of disciplines (including sleep, well-being, and
mental health) to take part in this workshop to discuss the design and
development of technology to support individual rhythms; social impacts of
measuring these physiological, behavioral, and mental changes; and feedback
interventions to help people become more aware of these changes. The goal
of the workshop is to create a community around incorporating an awareness
of biological rhythms into the design of technology.
