INTERACT 2021 Workshop - deadline and workshop day update

EMPATHY: Empowering People in Dealing with Internet of Things Ecosystems
August 30th, 2021
Bari, Italy

In the last decade, the spreading of low-cost technologies integrating
sensors and actuators has favored the development of the so-called smart
objects. This trend has been further fostered by the Internet of Things
(IoT), which connects the physical world with Internet via ubiquitous
sensors and actuators. The opportunities offered by the IoT are
amplified by the use of new approaches that, based on novel interaction
paradigms, involve directly non-technical users in configuring the joint
behavior of their smart objects, among them and with online services.

Existing solutions to define the behavior of such “IoT ecosystems” range
from systems that leave the users complete control for establishing the
joint behavior of smart objects, to solutions that automatically define
smart objects behavior exploiting intelligent techniques. In this
continuum, different technologies, frameworks, and approaches present
different levels of user control and automation. In this perspective it
is also important to consider the emerging role played by social and
humanoid robots, which are integrated sets of sensors and actuators with
human-like behaviours.

June 20th: Paper submission deadline
June 25th: Paper acceptance notice
June 30th: Camera-ready submission
August 30th: Workshop

This workshop aims to serve as a venue for discussing ongoing research
and sharing ideas for researchers and practitioners working on solutions
to personalize the behavior of IoT ecosystems. We aim to encourage
participation in order to have stimulating discussion from various
perspectives. Topics include, but are not limited, to:

      - End-User Development (EUD) for IoT;
      - Interaction Paradigms for IoT;
      - Usability of IoT Systems;
      - Interface Design for IoT;
      - Intelligent Interface for IoT Systems;
      - Accessibility for IoT Systems;
      - Virtual and Augmented Reality for EUD in IoT settings;
      - Conversational User Interfaces for EUD;
      - Usable Privacy and Security in IoT systems
      - Personalisation and Recommendations for IoT.

This will be a one-day workshop, oriented towards discussions, hands-on
sessions, and presentations. We invite submissions of two types: short
papers (3-4 pages) and position papers (1-2 pages). Participants are
asked to submit their paper describing their recent or future work in
one of the areas indicated in the topics of interest. All submissions
must be in the CHI Extended Abstracts format.

Papers should be submitted in PDF to easychair
( All papers will
be reviewed by the organizers and by the program committee based on
relevance and significance in order to provide constructive comments to
the submitters. Reviewing will be single blind (i.e. author names and
affiliations should be listed). If accepted, at least one of the authors
must register and attend the workshop. Final versions of the accepted
papers will be published in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings, which is
indexed by Scopus.
