HCIL Awards

  • 2013 - Yahoo! - HCIL Research Award
    Beth Bonsignore: for her design and implementation of an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) for middle schoolers and a study whose findings have had an impact in both HCI and Learning Sciences’ communities.

    Honorable Mention
    Jason Yip: for his work examining how children's ownership of science learning evolves and what factors of ownership HCI researchers need to consider when developing educational technologies to support STEM learning.

  • 2013 - Yahoo! - HCIL Data Visualization Research Award
    Cody Dunne: for motif simplification that replaces the repeating patterns or motifs in a network with simple glyphs to reduce visual complexity and new Group-in-a-Box layouts that subdivide large, dense networks using attribute- or topology-based groupings.

    Honorable Mention
    Megan Monroe: for concepts, designs, and a system to display, simplify, and query temporal event records consisting of both point events (events that occur at a single point in time) and interval events (events with both a start time and an end time).

  • 2012 - HCIL Google Best Student Research Award
    This award recognizes outstanding research by students from the Human-Computer Interaction Lab. The award is for cumulative work including design, engineering, study, writing and presentations. The criteria include a balance of creativity, innovation, impact, and thoroughness.

    Winners ($250 each)
    Dana Rotman: For diligent theory driven work to understand the motivations of professional scientists and citizen scientists to contribute to the Encyclopedia of Life - by mixed methods of survey and interview produced insights that are valuable to this and other citizen science projects.

    Chang Hu: For a fresh approach to an important problem - by using crowds of people that speak one language to collectively translate text, with thorough evaluation, and a well engineered publicly availably deployment, this shows the potential of combining human and computer capacities.

    Honorable Mention:
    John Alexis Guerra Gomez: For innovative design and development of a visual analytic tool to compare evolving tree structures such as budget data.

    Greg Walsh: For a creative way of applying participatory design, then implementing and evaluating a tool to support distributed teams of children.
