|16:00||Practical Session: Visions of Future Homes|
at bQm bar right next to ETH Zurich, Leonhardstrasse 34. Please find directions here.
We have decided to focus the plenary talks in the workshop on visionary (i.e. painting a vision of the future of homes and technologies within them) and reflective (i.e. relating past experiences with conducting research in the home which is informative for those working in the space). We also have some great posters and videos representing cutting edge work-in-progress in this space. Last but not least, we are excited to welcome Gregory Abowd from Georgia Tech to give a keynote to kick off the day.
