Awards for SACHI papers


Some examples of Small Multiples Visualizations

Two papers with SACHI authors have been recently highlighted for their value.
Our own Aaron Quigley, in colaboration with Michael Farrugia (first author) and Neil Hurley presented the paper: Exploring temporal ego networks using small multiples and tree-ring layouts, which has won the best paper award at ACHI.
UbiCursor projects a low-resolution image of the cursor anywhere in the room.

Simultaneously, on the Canadian side, Miguel Nacenta co-authors (with Robert Xiao -first author-, Regan Mandryk, Andy Cockburn and Carl Gutwin) the paper: Ubicursor: A Comparison of Direct and Indirect Pointing Feedback in Multi-Display Environments, which has won the Michael A. J. Sweeney Award at this year’s Graphics Interface conference. The paper’s success is also reported in Canada’s Surfnet Newsletter, and will be presented next week.
