THRIDI September 2021 workshop is open for applications!
Apply to connect, brainstorm and collaborate within an interdisciplinary community in a design workshop!
The THRIDI workshop, taking place virtually on September 13th, 2021, will bring together a selected cohort of like-minded researchers to connect with the goal of understanding challenges and solutions-space for creating privacy-conscious technologies for our homes.
THRIDI project was initially funded by the EPSRC-HDI network to foster collaboration within an interdisciplinary community in the area of user-friendly trust management interfaces for IoT in smart home settings. Following successful workshops (also in British HCI), we will be organising a 3rd design workshop focusing on four smart home use-cases - Smart Toys, Smart Appliances, Smart Health, and Home Security.
The workshop will explore data protection in smart homes in three stages:
(1) Legibility – transparency of data collection at home
(2) Agency – control over personal data considering the multi-party use of home devices
(3) Negotiability – changing relationships and managing control over personal data at home.
The workshop will aim to create a free-thinking and collaborative environment, involving 24 participants using online collaboration and communication tools. We expect the workshop to be especially suited to researchers in academia, industry, and the public sector specialising in IoT, network security, privacy-enhancing technologies, user interface design, law, and policy. We are looking for researchers who enjoy stepping outside their area of expertise or interest, enjoy creative activities and teamwork. The workshop requires you to brainstorm and apply design thinking to different scenarios with other researchers you may not know. We aim to chart out some of the challenges in this space and come up with initial ideas of design solutions that may underpin future collaborative opportunities.

Applications close on 30th August.
The THRIDI workshop is committed to supporting diversity. Early-career researchers who are members of any underrepresented group in our industry are strongly encouraged to apply!
Call for Events is now open! We're supporting Members and Expert Fellows to lead activities that explore aspects of TIPS in the Digital Economy. We will help to organise the activity with up to £5,000 to cover the associated costs.
