The shared online calendar is the de facto standard for event organisation and management in the modern office environment. It is also a potentially valuable source of context, provided the calendar event data represent an accurate account of 'real-world' events. However, as we show through a field study, the calendar does not represent reality well as(More)
The ENLITEN project aims to reduce carbon emissions attributable to energy use within buildings -- particularly homes -- by understanding and influencing occupants' habits and behaviours with respect to energy use. To achieve this we are developing a system based on a whole building energy model that, uniquely, integrates (i) a thermal model, (ii) a model(More)
Mobile context-awareness is a popular research trend in the field in ubiquitous computing. Advances in mobile device sensory hardware and the rise of 'virtual' sensors such as web APIs mean that the mobile user is exposed to a vast range of data that can be used for new advanced applications. This workshop allows industrial and academic researchers to(More)

We study the problem of designing sensor sets for capturing energy events in buildings. In addition to direct energy sensing methods, e.g. electricity and gas, it is often desirable to monitor energy use and occupant activity through other sensors such as temperature and motion. However, practical constraints such as cost and deployment requirements can(More)
Thanks to the rapid development of mobile technologies, smartphones allow people to be reachable anywhere and anytime. In addition to the benefits for end users, researchers and developers can also benefit from the powerful devices that participants potentially carry on a daily basis. This minitrack workshop brings together researchers with an interest on(More)
Due to their ubiquity and ever-increasing technical capabilities, mobile devices are often used as data collection tools by researchers in multiple fields, notably HCI and Ubicomp. Although the data gathered by mobile devices can be generated from sources such as the device users, it is difficult for researchers to capture ground truth and verify data(More)
