SICSA HCI Research Theme is delighted to be sponsoring Defining the Future of Television Accessibility Workshop on Thursday the 26th May 2016 at the Robert Gordon University. This workshop will bring together leading experts in this area from academia and industry in order to frame what the future of Television Accessibility could potentially look like.
The focus of this workshop is to examine the accessibility of TV services in family life. This will be used to discuss how accessibility services can be created and/or altered in order to examine the social dynamic that is attached to television viewing. The workshop will focus on idea generation and will be used to foster collaborations between academia and industry.
The schedule for the day is as follows:

1400-1530 Workshop Activity 2 – Creating Impact with The Business Model Canvas
- Following on from the idea generation from the first workshop activity, this second activity will examine a subset of the oppertunities created. This will involve mapping out the ideas onto a Business Model Canvas with the end result being clear and defined impact pathways for research.
