Call for Participation


This one-day workshop aims to explore ubiquitous privacy research and design in the context of mobile and IoT by facilitating discourse among scholars from the networked privacy and design communities. The complexity in modern socio-technical systems points to the potential of utilizing various design techniques (e.g., speculative design, design fiction, and research through design practices) in surfacing the potential consequences of novel technologies, particularly those that traditional user studies may not reveal. The results will shed light in future privacy designs for mobile and IoT technologies from both empirical and design perspectives.

Important Dates

  • September 26, 2019: Position Papers Due (Deadline extended to October 6th)
