On May 5, we had one of our regular team meetings. Elina, Björn, Hannes, Cristi, Ulrika, Cecilia, Åke, Hanna, Henrik, Malin and Teo joined this time. The first thing we discussed was the CHI conference in Toronto, from which Elina and a few others recently came back. The conference was both interesting and relevant for our team, and we will continue to discuss how we can take advantage of new ideas and impressions. There were a few fellow researchers who were interested in visiting us, the first will be Xinning ”Sunny” Gui, who will be visiting us this coming fall. She will be sitting in the CESC corridor.
The next point for discussion was the submissions for the conference ICT4S in Stockholm in August. We are happy to announce that 6 papers from our team were accepted!
Next, Björn informed us about possible changes in the master programs, which could mean more opportunities for us to combine research related projects with teaching about sustainability in the media technology education.
Teo reminded us about some new PhD positions related the new doctoral program, which is a collaboration between KTH and the University College of Arts, Craft and Design. He also mentioned the Green leap event next Friday. Cecilia informed us about the Energy authority’s opening of the EID (Energi IT & Design) call, with a deadline in September. And finally Hannes welcomed us all to his thesis defense on May 22.
