Keynote: Ubicomp and the Home, Gregory D. Abowd
Regents' and Distinguished Professor
School of Interactive Computing
Georgia Inst. of Technology
Gregory Abowd is in his 20th year on the faculty at Georgia Tech, where he has worked on applications of mobile and ubiquitous computing. In 1998, he launched an effort to explore ubicomp technologies in the home through the Aware Home. 15 years later, he would like to reflect on progress in the field of ubicomp technologies in the home.

Cross-Cultural Energy Discussions Through Activity Recognition
HomeSys 2013 will be an inspiring, interactive, cross-disciplinary workshop for anyone conducting research into technology in homes.
This includes anyone...
building novel systems, applications, or devices for the home
studying existing or novel technology use in domestic settings
with an interest in the intersection between technology and the home.
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.
Submission for optional papers: May 24, 2013
Notification: June 7, 2013
Camera-ready: June 21, 2013, midnight PST
