On Friday 26th, 9:30am, Keith will give a public seminar to the Computer Science department and interested “friends of S+I” on “Exploring the design and use of public situated displays for supporting sense of community in a rural village” where Keith will talk about his recent exploration of the ways in which a situated digital display deployment has been able to support and forster notions of community in a rural community in the north of England.

For those who don’t know Keith, he is a Senior Lecturer with Lancaster University’s School of Computing and Communications. His research over the last decade has focused on exploring the obdurate problems associated with the user-centred design of interactive systems (typically systems that utilise mobile and/or ubicomp technologies) in complex or semi-wild settings and the deployment and longitudinal study of these systems in order to gain insights into issues of user adoption and appropriation. He has been involved in mobile/ubicomp research for 20 years and has published in excess of 170 research articles.

We are very please to have him visiting us!
