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.

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.
