Aging, Privacy, and Home-Based Computing: Developing a Design Framework
Found in: IEEE Pervasive Computing
By Kalpana Shankar,L. Jean Camp,Kay Connelly,Lesa Huber
Issue Date:October 2012
pp. 46-54
Applications for "aging in place" focus on supporting elders and informing the caregiver but often at the risk of abrogating privacy. The authors developed and tested various prototypes to create a privacy framework for designing home-based compu...
 
Realizing an Open Ubiquitous Environment in a RESTful Way
Found in: Web Services, IEEE International Conference on
By Yong Liu, Kay Connelly
Issue Date:September 2008
pp. 96-103
Web services have been widely used to support context-aware applications for context information retrieval in a ubiquitous environment. However, most of the existing research efforts in this field only focus on using SOAP web service as an enabling technol...
 
Towards Wide Area Context-Aware Environments
Found in: Pervasive Computing and Communications Workshops, IEEE International Conference on
By Yong Liu, Kay Connelly
Issue Date:March 2006
pp. 616-619
In the vision of ubiquitous computing, there are billions of context sources that continuously publish their contextual information, and even more user agents that search for and consume such information. These context producers and consumers form a larges...
 
SmartContacts: A Large Scale Social Context Service Discovery System
Found in: Pervasive Computing and Communications Workshops, IEEE International Conference on
By Yong Liu, Kay Connelly
Issue Date:March 2006
pp. 388-392
The proliferation of cell phones has led to an ever increasing number of inappropriate interruptions. SmartContacts provides a solution to this problem by empowering the caller to make better, more informed decisions about the appropriateness of making a c...
 
A Toolkit for Automatically Constructing Outdoor Radio Maps
Found in: Information Technology: Coding and Computing, International Conference on
By Kay Connelly, Yong Liu, Dan Bulwinkle, Adam Miller, Ian Bobbitt
Issue Date:April 2005
pp. 248-253
Outdoor location systems based on Wireless Access Point (WAP) signal strength must either know the exact location of the WAPs in order to use a triangulation algorithm, or must construct a radiomap of the signal strengths. While the radio-map technique inc...
 
On Negotiating Automatic Device Configuration in Smart Environments
Found in: Pervasive Computing and Communications Workshops, IEEE International Conference on
By Kay Connelly, Ashraf Khalil
Issue Date:March 2004
pp. 213
As the number of mobile devices we carry grows, the job of managing those devices throughout the day becomes cumbersome. In addition, the ability to use mobile devices in unethical ways without being detected is becoming widespread. It is desirable for mob...

By Karen Cheng, Kay Connelly, Kelly Caine, Wanda Pratt
Issue Date:April 2013
pp. 2485-2488
How do we keep consumers engaged in using health technologies? We welcome all researchers and practitioners who are interested in this question to join us for a spirited discussion, hosted by the CHI Health Community.
     
ScaleMirror: a pervasive device to aid weight analysis
Found in: Proceedings of the 2011 annual conference extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems (CHI EA '11)
By Andrew J. Younge, Kay Connelly, Mohammed Al-Azdee, Vinod Periasamy, William Hazlewood
Issue Date:May 2011
pp. 2335-2340
As today's fast paced environment continually encourages poor dietary habits and a lack of exercise, there is a growing need to properly monitor and control weight gain. With the advent of pervasive and ubiquitous computing, there are new opportunities to ...
     
Issues in evaluating ambient displays in the wild: two case studies
Found in: Proceedings of the 2011 annual conference on Human factors in computing systems (CHI '11)
By Erik Stolterman, Kay Connelly, William R. Hazlewood
Issue Date:May 2011
pp. 877-886
In this paper we discus the complex task of evaluating ambient displays, concentrating on issues within in-situ deployments. We start by describing how these technologies have been evaluated in lab settings, where the focus has been primarily on issues of ...
     
Exploring early evaluation techniques of ambient health promoting devices in home environments of senior citizens living independently
Found in: Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Systems and Networking Support for Health Care and Assisted Living Environments (HealthNet '08)
By Greg Orlov, Heekyoung Jung, Kalpana Shankar, Kay Connelly, Rajasee Rege, William Hazelwood
Issue Date:June 2008
pp. 1-2
In this paper, our goal is to explore different early evaluation techniques and their effectiveness for designing better ambient health- promoting devices for the elderly. One cannot assess the complete impact of these devices without full implementation o...
     
Exploring evaluation methods for ambient information systems
Found in: CHI '08 extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems (CHI '08)
By Kay Connelly, Kevin Makice, William R. Hazlewood, Youn-kyung Lim
Issue Date:April 2008
pp. 49-54
In this paper, we begin by laying out our motivation for exploring methods of evaluating Ambient Information Systems, with a strong push toward in-situ studies. Next, we describe a simple study which was conducted to give us further insight into this resea...
     
Context-aware telephony: privacy preferences and sharing patterns
Found in: Proceedings of the 2006 20th anniversary conference on Computer supported cooperative work (CSCW '06)
By Ashraf Khalil, Kay Connelly
Issue Date:November 2006
pp. 469-478
The proliferation of cell phones has led to an ever increasing number of inappropriate interruptions. Context-aware telephony applications, in which callers are provided with context information about the receivers, has been proposed as a solution for this...
     
FM-QoS: real-time communication using self-synchronizing schedules
Found in: Proceedings of the 1997 ACM/IEEE conference on Supercomputing (CDROM) (Supercomputing '97)
By Andrew A. Chien, Kay Connelly
Issue Date:November 1997
pp. 1-18
FM-QoS employs a novel communication architecture based on network feedback to provide predictable communication performance (e.g. deterministic latencies and guaranteed bandwidths) for high speed cluster interconnects. Network feedback is combined with se...
