Our Three Papers at #CHI2018


Our three full papers were accepted at #CHI2018. These papers are among the 667 accepted papers (out of the 2,537 papers submitted, 25.7% acceptance rate). Our mHealth systematic review paper received a Best Paper Honorable Mention Award (awarded to the top 5% of submissions). We will present these papers at #CHI2018 in Montreal, Canada on April 21-26.

Our papers cover topics from youth empowerment to family physical activity. We studied technologies such as social networking apps, wearable physical activity trackers, and mHealth applications for low-SES populations. The full list of papers is below:

  • Social Computing-Driven Activism in Youth Empowerment Organizations: Challenges and Opportunities (PDF)
  • Family Health Promotion in Low-SES Neighborhoods: A Two-Month Study of Wearable Activity Tracking (PDF)
  • Designing and Evaluating mHealth Interventions for Vulnerable Populations: A Systematic Review. (PDF). Best paper nomination (5% of the total submission).

Our complete list of publications can be found on this page. Additionally, we will present our position paper at the Workshop on Next Steps Towards Long-Term Self Tracking at CHI. This paper, entitled “Ecological Factors of Long-Term Family Physical Activity Tracking” (PDF), discusses intrapersonal, interpersonal, and community influences of family physical activity tracking. We then suggest potential challenges that arise when addressing these influences in  long-term activity tracking.
