TEAM Orientation Conference
TEAM Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) offered poster presentations at the TEAM ITN Orientation Conference between the 4th and 8th September 2017. Poster presentations provided an opportunity for the TEAM ESRs to display and talk about their scientific research and provide visual and concise information to engage with conference attendees, the wider academic community and general public. The poster session was ideal for this early stage of research to demonstrate the aims of each project and to show the methodologies employed by each researcher. TEAM ITN posters are displayed below.
3rd Symposium on Computing and Mental Health: Understanding, Engaging, and Delighting Users
Six TEAM ESRs, (Hidde van der Meulen, Franziska Tachtler, Toni Michel, Aris Malapaschas, Claudette Pretorius and Alberto González Olmos) presented posters the CHI workshop on Computing and Mental Health. Darragh McCashin submitted a social paper at the workshop which was held on Sunday, 22nd April 2018.
"The third in our series of Symposia on Computing and Mental Health will provide an opportunity for researchers to come together under the auspices of CHI to discuss the design and evaluation of new mental health technologies. Our emphasis is on understanding users and how to increase engagement with these technologies in daily life." (CHI, 2018)
The workshop and CHI conference offered ESRs an opportunity to engage with a multicultural community from highly diverse backgrounds that include designers, researchers and practitioners.
Understanding "Bad Actors" Online
Darragh McCashin presented a position paper at the Understanding 'Bad Actors' Online workshop at CHI, 2018. This workshop focused on online misbehaviour to understand why people engage in abusive behaviour online. This workshop took place on the 21st April 2018.
"Workshop participants will engage in practical brainstorming exercises, develop research plans and design ideas, and build relationships with other researchers, practitioners, and activists to collaboratively realize ideas generated from the workshop." (CHI, 2018)
CHI PLAY, 2018
CHI PLAY is "the international and interdisciplinary conference (by ACM SIGCHI) for researchers and professionals across all areas of play, games and human-computer interaction (HCI)." The goal of CHI PLAY is to highlight and foster discussion of current high quality research in games and HCI as foundation for the future of digital play. CHI PLAY ’18 was held in Melbourne, Australia, from 28-31 October 2018.
The conference comprised of;
- pre-conference workshops and a doctoral consortium
- peer reviewed paper presentations,
- panel discussions, and
- invited keynote speakers of international standing.
Hidde van der Meulen MSCA research at University College Dublin delivered a poster presentation at the doctoral consortium entitled "Including
end-users in evaluating and designing a game that supports child mental health". View the full poster below.
