Biography: Katina Michael is the director for the Centre for Engineering, Policy and Society at Arizona State University. She holds a joint appointment in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and the School of Computing, Informatics and Decisions Systems Engineering. Her PhD was on the technological trajectory of automatic identification technologies where she was a pioneer in investigating microchipping humans from a socio-technical systems perspective. Katina has worked previously as a senior network engineer and systems analyst for several transnational companies. She holds qualifications in information technology and the law with a research interest in national security and location-based services. Together with MG Michael she has introduced the term uberveillance into the bioethics literature. She is the founding editor in chief of the IEEE Transactions on Technology and Society.
Workshop Overview: Overview: The workshop aims at drawing the state-of-the-art for skin-like technologies by discussing the latest scientific progress and achievements, the open challenges and the opportunities for future directions. As this research area is at the crossroads of several disciplines (including electronics, electromagnetics, mechanics, materials science, chemistry, biology, medicine, ethics) the workshop will offer the opportunity of fruitful contamination among chemical sensors, electromagnetic components and interconnects, energy harvesting and the smart materials and packaging as well as ethical issues.
