A workshop intended to foster critical re-thinking of social aspects in the adoption of novel, interactive technologies, which is often embraced by “social acceptance” and “social acceptability”. While these terms have been frequently used in the field of HCI, they have only been sparsely defined, and there are no agreed-upon metrics to measure their effects (yet).
