intLab members, Senior Lecturer in Computer Science, Dr Elisa Rubegni and PhD student, Grace Ataguba, attended the 2018 ACM Interaction Design and Children (IDC) Conference hosted at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway.
The annual conference provides a fantastic opportunity for research and addresses the design, development and use of interactive technologies for children.
Dr Rubegni is a well established member of this community and was paper chair of the conference. She presented her research on children as authors of digital storytelling and how to increase their awareness on gender issues.
Grace also presented a work in progress paper on how to maintain long-distance relationships with children by exploring autobiographical designs and life-logging.
The best paper of the conference will be published in the Elsevier International Journal of Child-Computer Interaction.
