Professor Rogers awarded SIGCHI Lifetime Research Award

UCLIC Director, Professor Yvonne Rogers, has been awarded the prestigious SIGCHI Lifetime Research Award 2022. SIGCHI, one of the Association for Computing Machinery's special interest groups, is the leading international community of professionals interested in research, education and the practical application of human-computer interaction, enabling its members to create and shape how people interact with technology and understand how technologies have an impact in people's lives.

The Lifetime Award was conferred on Professor Rogers to recognise her critical stance towards how visions, theories and frameworks shape the fields of HCI, cognitive science and ubiquitous computing, her impact in promulgating new theories (e.g., external cognition), alternative methodologies (e.g., in the wild studies) and far-reaching research agendas (e.g., "Being Human" manifesto), and her pioneer approaches to innovation and ubiquitous learning.
