U of T Inventors of the Year
Dr. Ricardo Jota and I were named recipients of U of T’s Inventors of the Year award for 2013. This recognises work built upon our 2012 UIST paper, Designing for Low Latency Direct-Touch Input. The project was co-invented with Steven Sanders and Clifton Forlines of Tactual Labs, where the tech has been spun out, and with the generous support of Microsoft.
CHI 2014: People’s Choice Talk Awards Chair
In the spirit of “no good suggestion goes unpunished”, I have volunteered as CHI’s first chair of “People’s Choice Talk Awards” (for 2014). Our goal is to reward high-quality talks by allowing conference attendees to vote for their favourites. The People’s Choice Awards will be presented at the end of the conference. So, CHI 2014 presenters, be on notice: a good talk can lead to fame and fortune!
Connaught New Researcher Award
I was pleased to learn this week that the Connaught Fund will be sponsoring my lab with a New Researcher Award at the top level of funding. Thank you to U of T for their continued support.
