I have attended TEI 2018 to present my research paper “The Interactive Carpet – smart textile Interface for Children on Autism Spectrum Disorder” which was published in the proceeding to the conference. Moreover, I had an opportunity to showcase my physical prototype of the “Interactive Carpet” (see image above) during the conference. I would like to thank ACM-W Scholarship Committee for given opportunity to travel to TEI 2018 in Stockholm. Visiting the conference gave me a lot of inspiration, new ideas as well as useful networking for conducting my research further. I am planning to enter PhD program and this conference gave me plenty of ideas for possible research directions. Moreover, during the graduate student consortium event I received valuable feedback and recommendations on how I can improve my research and possible directions for PhD studies.
