Dear all,

these are the last days to apply for the workshop "Mapping the IoT: co-design, test and refine a design framework for IoT products" A workshop in conjunction with NordiCHI'16<> conference Gothenburg, Sweden

October, 4, 2016

In the Mapping The IoT Workshop, designers and technology enthusiasts are invited to reflect on how IoT products could be analyzed from a product design perspective. The aim of the workshop is to identify a broad shared framework to examine and map them, that can be later used as a guideline generator for future design processes focused on IoT devices. In this 6 hour long workshop, the attendees will present a case study, discuss the IoT topic, and then participate to a co-design session in which they'll apply, test and freely modify the "MappingTheIoT Toolkit" a tool developed to critically analyze connected products. The contribution of the workshop's participants will be valuable to test it and eventually reframe completely its analysis framework. They also may continue to contribute to the project aimed at publishing it as a Creative Commons resource.
