Abstract

In this Special Interest Group (SIG) we plan to focus on discussions and activities surrounding the design of technologies to support families. Many researchers and designers study domestic routines to inform technology design, create novel interactive systems, and evaluate these systems through real world use. Bringing together researchers, designers and practitioners interested in technologies for families at a SIG provides a forum for discussing shared interests including methods for gaining an understanding of the user, metrics for evaluating interventions, and shared definitions of the concept of the family.
