We are hosting a symposium at the Royal Society, titled ‘Digital Change: Redesigning money and exchange for ordinary interactions in alternative financial systems’. This will take place on Friday the 10th of April, 2015. Please contact us if you would like to receive invitation details. This will look at digital connectivity and peer-to-peer relationships in financial services outside of the traditional banking sector. Speakers will look at how people and organisations make use of digital technology – the variety of social, economic and transactional problems that they face and produce – and areas that future digital and emerging technology solutions can offer value and improvements in, or negatively impact on use.
Confirmed speakers include Professor Barry Brown (Director of the Future of Money Project, Stockholm University, looking at the intersection of money, social interaction and device design), Brett Scott (journalist, campaigner and author), and Dr Joe Deville (Goldsmiths College, researching digital credit and Wonga).
A full paper, pulling together some of the key research at the Bristol pound will be presented in the ACM CSCW 2015 conference on findings from our fieldwork on payment: ‘Spending Time with Money: from shared values to social connectivity‘, authored by Jennifer Ferreira, Mark Perry and Sriram Subramanian.
We will present a workshop paper at ACM CSCW in 2015, ‘Collaboration and Social Computing in Emerging Financial Services‘. It’s a short paper, bringing together a number of issues arising from the data collection at Zopa and the Bristol pound: ‘Digital Financial Innovation: Design Rhetorics, Spatiality, and the Challenge of Creating Community‘.
We are co-hosting a workshop at ACM CHI in 2014, on the topic of interactions with money: ‘#CHIMoney: Financial Interactions, Digital Cash, Capital Exchange and Mobile Money‘. It’s a short (2-4 page) submission, and will be a one day workshop that will include interactive discussions, short presentations and breaks for discussions and refreshments. The accepted papers will go toward a special issue of the journal of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing on ‘Financial HCI’, co-edited by the workshop organisers. The submission deadline is the 28th January 2014.
