The ESRC-funded seminar series on ‘Digital Bubbles: Innovative technologies for Autism’ is being hosted at the Universities of Southampton, Sussex and Bath, UK. Seven seminars over 2 years, featuring international speakers from a range of disciplines, will focus on why and how technologies are being developed, applied and evaluated for people with autism, exploring different ‘bubbles’ that exist within the field; for example, methods, disciplines, stage of life, and the use of different technologies.
