culturally acceptable, economically viable, and aesthetically pleasing.
Consequently, successful pervasive computing products require a balance
computing, design, and business expertise throughout their development
phases.Without this collection of
expertise, the product will likely fall short in a critical technical,
functional, or market requirement.
This workshop will bring together a body of
practitioners, researchers and educators who are making inroads into
interdisciplinary pervasive computing design.
