What role do people have in the Internet of Things? Compared to the impressive body of research that is currently tackling the technical issues of the Internet of Things, social aspects of agency, engagement, participation, and ethics, are receiving less attention. The goal of this ‘Designing the Social Internet of Things’ workshop is to contribute by shedding light on these aspects. We invite prospective participants to take a humanistic standpoint, explore people’s relations with ‘things’ first, and then build on such relations so as to support socially relevant goals of engagement, relatedness, participation, and creativity.
