Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy in conjunction with the Center for Digital Humanities is hosting a workshop called “Adversarial Design: Pushing Back on the Internet of Things”:

We solicit teams of computer scientists, engineers, designers, artists, legal scholars, and social theorists to come together and design systems that can provide users with more visibility into and control over the behavior of the devices that they connect to their networks, ultimately giving people more agency over these devices. Existing efforts to improve IoT privacy and security have begun to explore ways to visualize and control data flows from these devices, but many of these designs could be informed by insights from architects, designers, and sociologists as well as critical theories of design. The workshop plans to bring people together from these diverse knowledge bases to enrich and enhance existing approaches to security and privacy in smart homes and cities.

Applications are due on February 24, 2017 with the workshop taking place on April 5-7. Full details can be found on the workshop webpage.
