ACM AVI 2020 Workshop - Submission deadline extended to July 15th

** COVID-19 Information **
The current plan is to hold the workshop with participation in person.

EMPATHY: Empowering People in Dealing with Internet of Things Ecosystems
September 29th, 2020
Island of Ischia, 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.

July 15th: Paper submission deadline
July 20th: Paper acceptance notice
July 24th: Camera-ready submission
September 29th: Half-day workshop (morning)

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;
      - Usable Privacy and Security in IoT systems
      - Personalisation and Recommendations for IoT.

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 constuctive 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.
