Human-Computer Interaction students recognized by two prestigious international conferences on usability and pervasive computing

April 20, 2011

Four students of the School of Informatics and Computing’ graduate program in Human-Computer Interaction have been recognized for their research by two top international conferences on usability and pervasive computing.

Students Arthur Liu and Haidan Huang’s peer-reviewed research paper was accepted at the prestigious Association for Computing Machinery Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) in the student design competition. Liu and Huang’s team was one of only 12 selected to advance in the competition, which saw more than 60 entries from 11 countries. They will present their paper, titled “TimeCapsule: Connecting Past,” at the CHI conference this May in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Huang joins students Preethi Srinivas and Afarin Pirzadeh in having their peer-reviewed paper, “Smart Shopper: Supporting In-Store Decision-Making,” accepted to the highly-selective paper demo session of the renowned Pervasive Conference scheduled for this June in San Francisco. The conference is an annual event and forum for researchers in all areas related to architecture, design, implementation, application and evaluation of pervasive computing.
