IFIP TC13 Pioneers in Human-Computer Interaction

 

The International Federation for Information Processing Technical Committee on Human-Computer Interaction (IFIP TC13) appoints pioneers to honour the greatest contributors to the development and growth of the field of human-computer interaction.

An IFIP TC13 Pioneer is one who, through active participation in IFIP Technical Committees or related IFIP groups, has made outstanding contributions to the educational, theoretical, technical, commercial or professional aspects of analysis, design, construction, evaluation and use of interactive systems.

The 2014 Committee to consider the IFIP TC13 Pioneers awards comprised Mark Apperley (New Zealand, chair), Gitte Lindgaard (Canada, Past Pioneer), Zhengjie Liu (China, Past Pioneer), Torkil Clemmensen (Denmark) and Marta Larusdottir (Iceland).

Seventeen nominations were considered by the committee for the 2014 award. The committee has unanimously recommended three nominees for the 2014 awards.
