Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

The primary focus of our workshop is to challenge the expanding text entry community to move beyond the mobile phone and start exploring novel and emerging technologies, designing systems for non-traditional users, and expand into unexplored domains and contexts of use. We hope to engage in setting a new agenda for our research community through the identication, collection, and presentation of text entry edge cases. As such, our workshop has two specic foci. First, to strengthen the text entry community by bringing text entry researchers working in various disciplines together in hopes of sharing knowledge across disciplines and establishing a set of best practices that can be used to build our community. Second, to set a research agenda around these edge cases that can be used to drive the eld forwards and unite the eld in a common direction so that our combined eorts can help bring novel and impactful text entry solutions to new and emerging technologies as well as underserved communities of users and research domains.
