MATT JONES

 

For the past nineteen years I have been researching how people might use their mobile devices to connect to information, services and other people. 

 

Eight years ago I co-wrote Mobile Interaction Design and have written a number of other articles that address these issues too: Google seems to find most of them; the ACM Digital Library has others; and, I maintain this list, too.

 

My work has been funded by Research Councils (like EPSRC) and a number of fantastic industry partners.  I work at the FIT Lab in the Department of Computer Science, Swansea University. I enjoy serving on various advisory boards including the RCUKs Digital Economy PAB; and, EPSRCs ICT SAT. I was recently involved in the review of UK HCI.

NEWS, FORTHCOMING and RECENT TALKS / EVENTS

 

      I spoke at my great friend Gary Marsdens Memorial Service in early Feb; and deeply miss him. Why not donate to a scholarship in his name?

 

      I was delighted to receive a Royal Society Wolfson Merit Award (Jan 2014). I will use this as a platform to think HCI for resource constrained communities.

 

      I just co-Chaired CHI 2014 in Toronto – over 3000 people attended; Margaret Atwood was great and our work got featured in Gizmodo.

 

      Visited Mumbai in March giving talks and carrying out fieldwork.

 

      Speaking in Glasgow as part of a SICSA event at end of May.

 

      Finished writing a book, Theres Not An App for That, out soon(ish)!
