Publications

In  REFIT we aim to produce a series of open-access conference and journal publications to maximise the project’s impact.

 

Journal articles

Wilson, C., Hargreaves, T. and Hauxwell-Baldwin, R., 2015. Smart homes and their users: a systematic analysis and key challenges. Personal and Ubiquitous Computing, Volume 19, Issue 2, Page 463-476. An annotated bibliography of the 70+ journal articles and conference papers reviewed can be downloaded here.
