Moncur, W., Bikker, J., Kasket, E. and Troyer, J., 2012. From death to final disposition: Roles of technology in the post-mortem interval. In: CHI'12: The 2012 ACM annual conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, 2012-05-05 - 2012-05-10, Austin, Texas. ACM, pp. 531-540.
In this paper, we describe collaborative processes and stakeholders involved in the period from when a person dies until they are laid to rest: the funeral, final disposition of the body, and (in some circumstances) victim identification. The rich mixture of technologies currently deployed during this brief period are categorized and critically analyzed. We then reflect on the implications of our findings, both for the design of technology that takes the end of life into account, and for the wider HCI community.
