Luddy researchers earned honorable mention honors and more at CHI 2021
The Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering will make its presence felt during the Association for Computing Machinery’s CHI Conference 2021, the premier international conference in the field of human computer interaction, held virtually May 8-13.
The event, which has been held annually since 1982 and attracts thousands of submissions from around the world, has accepted eight papers from Luddy researchers. One submission, “Empowering Resignation: There’s an App for That,” by postdoctoral researcher John S. Seberger, recent Luddy M.S. in Informatics graduate Marissel Llavore, Luddy Information Science Ph.D. candidate Nicholas Wyant, Luddy Assistant Professor Sameer Patil, and Irina Shklovski, a professor at the University of Copenhagen, earned Honorable Mention honors, a distinction reserved for the top five percent of all papers submitted.
“Researchers at the Luddy School are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible in technology and are taking on leadership roles in shaping tomorrow,” said Dennis Groth, interim dean of the Luddy School. “Being accepted to CHI is a tremendous honor, and earning honorable mention recognition is tangible proof that our faculty and students continue to make a global impact with their work.”
