** Call for participation in a workshop at UbiComp '06 **

Feeling Comforted, Cared for, and Connected at Home: Nurturant  
Technologies in the Domestic Environment
Nurturant technologies are technologies that support emotional  
relationships, producing feelings of being comforted and cared about;  
they are technologies that help people thrive.  This workshop will  
explore the potential for technology to support the experience of  
being nurtured in the home and the emerging practices (observed or  
imagined) around nurturance in the home. These practices will inform  
proposals for the design of nurturant technology for a variety of  
domains including: healthcare, entertainment, education, spiritual  
practice, and communication.  Technologies from various domains will  
be discussed using the lenses of architectural space and social  
context with the goals of 1) understanding emerging practices of  
using technology for nurturance and 2) proposing designs for  
nurturant technology.
