CSIM thesis wins AIPO Best Master Thesis award

A CSIM thesis has won the award for Best Master Thesis in the topic of human computer interaction. The contest was held by AIPO, the Association for Human-Computer Interaction (Asociación Interacción Persona-Ordenador), an organization which aims to promote and disseminate activities and research related to human computer interaction in Spain, Portugal and Latin America. The prize will be awarded at the AIPO Interacción 2016 conference in Salamanca in September, where the author has been invited to present her work.

The thesis project, done by Ciera Crowell and supervised by Joan Mora Guiard and Narcis Pares , focused on the experimental design and data analysis of a full-body interactive environment created to foster socialization among children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The project, called Lands of Fog, was based around the affinity towards technology shown by individuals with autism and the lack of technological intervention aids that allow children the opportunity to practice socialization with a partner in a in a fun and comfortable environment. The author is now continuing research in ICT and children with autism in her doctorate studies in the CMTECH lab at UPF.

More information about the project may be found at the project website, http://inautistic.upf.edu.
