Today, security threats are hardly sheer technical. They are 
rather socio-technical threats and come from adversaries who 
combine social engineering practices with technical skills to 
circumvent the defenses of information systems. Socio-technical 
attacks often succeed by exploiting the users' ill-understanding 
of security mechanisms or loopholes in poorly designed user 
interfaces and unclear security policies. In securing systems 
against these threats, humans obviously cannot be treated as

Ubiquitous sensing will soon allow us to record any moment of our lives. These moments can be restored and
used to create radically new ways of aiding human memory. The goal with memory aids is: recalling what
matters. This implies retrieving relevant information at the right time to the right extent and in a
context-driven way. We are looking for visions and research projects that aim to re-think and re-define
the notion of memory augmentation. The goal is to combine technological innovations in ubiquitous

Health and social care, e-Health, Telemedicine, are at the center of the research policies, on the
research agenda of the world governments and are facing major developments.
This publication intends to put together, in a comprehensive way, the problems of ageing, health, health
care, social care, mobility, ageing well, quality of life of people with special needs, user needs
analysis, and the recent approaches provided by ICT, such as e-Health and Telemedicine, new
technologies, new applications, emerging trends, the ethical and legal implications (eg. clinical
records) and case studies. It is an ambitious project of addressing the social, technological,
organizational, ethical and legal aspects of the topic.

The mission of the Encyclopedia of e-Health and Telemedicine is to discuss the main issues, challenges,
opportunities, and trends related to this new field of knowledge able to transform the way we live and
deliver services, from the social, technological and organizational dimensions, in a very

CFP: Workshop on Privacy Personas and Segmentation (PPS) at SOUPS 2014


Privacy Personas and Segmentation (PPS)

Workshop at the Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS) 2014
July 9, 2014, Menlo Park, CA


Further details at:


Starting with Westin's Privacy Indexes - a non-contextual privacy measure -
scholars and practitioners have been interested in understanding and
measuring privacy attitudes and concerns, and their relationship with
privacy behavior. Over time, an awareness has emerged of the importance of
context in privacy concerns, and the complex relationship between concerns
and actual behaviors. In recent years, proposals have been made to segment
individuals into more granular and detailed categories of privacy concerns
or behaviors, and classify or predict their privacy types, or personas.
Such efforts have been motivated by the goals of better understanding the
relationships between privacy attitudes, concerns and behaviors, and of
helping end users make better privacy decisions.

The focus of the PPS workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners interested in privacy personas and segmentation, to encourage
a paradigm shift in the measurement, modeling, and characterization of
privacy concerns which recognizes the complex interaction of factors

FINAL Call for Papers: Child-Robot Interaction Workshop <at> Interaction Design and Children Conference IDC'14, Aarhus, Denmark, June 2014

[We apologize in advance if you receive multiple copies of this message]

CFP: Child-Robot Interaction  <at>  Interaction Design and Children Conference,

Workshop on Child-Robot Interaction: Social bonding, Learning, and Ethics.

In Cooperation with FP7 EU-project EMOTE.

Aarhus, Denmark.
17 June, 2014,
Children are an especially interesting target group for Human-Robot
Interaction research since they are often more willing than adults to
interact and engage with robots. Therefore, children are likely to easily
form a bond with a robot.  Since research has suggested that when empathy
or support is provided (from a human or artificial source) learning is
improved, it is a logical step to use robots as teaching aids or
companions. However, robots that children bond with and/or learn from are
intended to affect individual well-being, and several ethical issues should
thus be considered, such as whether robots ought to be made to appear or
act humanlike, and whether they should be gendered. Furthermore, parents
and teachers are also important stakeholders when it comes to children’s
use of robots, either as social or learning companions.

NordiCHI 2014: Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals

NordiCHI 2014 Helsinki 26-30.10. 2014 | Fun, Fast, Foundational

NordiCHI 2014 invites proposals for organising workshops and tutorials to be held in conjunction with the
conference in Helsinki 26-30. October 2014.

Submission deadline for both workshop and tutorial proposals is 8 May, 2014.

Workshop proposals
Workshops offer an informal environment for attendees with common interests and diverse perspectives to
engage in rich discussions around works in progress or new areas of research and practice. NordiCHI 2014
invites workshop proposals addressing basic research, applied research, new methodologies, emerging
application areas, design innovations, and HCI education. The goal of the workshops is to generate ideas
that might give the NordiCHI community new ways of thinking about well-travelled themes and topics, or
that might suggest new promising directions for future work.

Workshops are held on two days before the start of the conference and can be full or half-day in length. We
will give preference to workshops that focus on community building and communal knowledge creation
rather than structured miniature paper presentation sessions.

For details:

Tutorial proposals
The NordiCHI 2014 conference would like to offer a wide variety of tutorials for researchers,
practitioners, designers, developers, managers and students. We invite proposals for tutorials
focusing on all themes of the Human Computer Interaction field. In particular, we encourage you to give
tutorials connected to the themes of the conference which are: fun, fast and foundational. Therefore, we
encourage instructors to propose a tutorial on new and emerging areas, methods and technologies, or on
experimenting with new forms of instruction and innovative perspectives in an HCI context.
Additionally, we encourage instructors to propose tutorials on the foundational themes of HCI and on the
