I’ve recently been getting more interested in HCI aspect of evoting platforms which is quite lucky as I am now working with some people here on such systems. As part of this new interest area I thought I’d also share some info on an up and coming workshop which is being organised by some colleagues of mine.
For more info check out the STAST 2013 Workshop:
We have extended the submission deadline for our workshop until 28th June, also as a result there is now a chance to have any papers that are submitted published in the adjunct proceedings of the ICEC conference in Bremen. A brief description of the topics covered by the workshop is below and you can find more information here: http://ept2012.uni.lu/
The use of serious gaming is becoming more widespread in domains as diverse as traffic management through to health and as research projects mature and products become available aspects relating to ethics, privacy and trust become more relevant. In this workshop we will bring together people from diverse backgrounds including law, data protection, human-computer interaction, security and games development to discuss a range of topics including:
• Data privacy, including legal aspects
• Games for Internet Security
• Social networking or crowd surfing approaches
• Location-aware technologies
• ehealth and rehabilitation games
• Massive multiplayer online games
• User studies or methodologies relating to trust or privacy
• Usability and human-factors issues relating to trust or privacy
• Ethical issues associated with serious and persuasive gaming
Some colleagues and I from SnT and Glasgow Caledonian University are hosting a workshop at ICEC 2012 in Bremen, Germany. Our workshop will be on ethics, privacy and trust in serious gaming. We would very much welcome contributors who not only have conducted thorough research in this area but also those who are now encountering these issues in their own areas of work.
