Adventure paper accepted to Ubicomp’16

The Adventure paper by Floyd and Sarah has been accepted to Ubicomp’16, to be presented in Heidelberg, Germany, in September. Acceptance rate was 23.9%.

Summary: Based on an earthquake-interrupted Mt. Everest expedition, we propose seeing adventure-technology through 2 dimensions (expected-unexpected and instrumental-experiential) and identify four roles: technology as coach, rescuer, documentarian and mentor.
