Success for School of Computing and Communications at Top-Tier Conference
The School of Computing and Communications has achieved its highest ever success at ACM SIGCHI, the top international conference on Human Computer Interaction (HCI), with nine papers accepted for publication. Two proposals from the School to run interactive workshops at the event were also accepted.
The ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2013) is widely recognised as the most prestigious venue for publication of research into HCI, attracting almost 2000 paper submissions this year.
Dr Jason Alexander who organised the School's CHI 2013 Author Support Group, said:
"The acceptance of nine papers into the most competitive conference in this field is a clear demonstration of the high-quality HCI research conducted at the School of Computing and Communications.
"With four papers accepted last year, the School has more than doubled its publications at this conference. In HCI, conference publications have greater impact than journals, meaning that this conference is of special significance to researchers in this field."
Lancaster will be represented by a large contingent of researchers attending CHI 2013 in Paris next spring.
The list of accepted papers from the School is as follows:
- Design for Forgetting: Disposing of Digital Possessions after a Breakup
Dr Corina Sas and Steve Whittaker (University of California, Santa Cruz)
