Pervasive Intelligibility Workshop

Due to the proactive and complex behavior of pervasive computing environments, it is important that systems are intelligible (or scrutable) to allow users to understand “what the systems know, how they know it, and what they are doing”. Furthermore, these systems should put end-users at the center of control by empowering them to better co-ordinate, control, and personalize pervasive systems. Intelligibility and control are crucial to improve the usability of these novel, and possibly unintuitive, systems and to help users understand, appreciate, trust, and ultimately adopt them
