IFIP TC13 Pioneers in 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 L�rusd�ttir (Iceland).

Seventeen nominations were considered by the committee, which has unanimously recommended three nominees for the 2014 awards:
Paula Kotze (South Africa),
Fabio Patern� (Italy), and
Clarisse Sieckenius de Souza (Brazil).

TC13 congratulates the award winners for their pioneering achievements!

See attached for brief summaries of the winners.

Paula is a long-time expert member of TC13 and an active contributor to WG13.1. She has brought the field of HCI education forward with an international perspective, and is a figurehead for Human-Computer Interaction in South Africa, putting South Africa on the map both with IFIP and ACM SIGCHI. She was co-chair of INTERACT 2013 in Cape Town, and was recipient of an IFIP Silver Core Award in 2007.

Fabio Patern� (Italy)

Fabio is the current and long-time representative of Italy in TC13. He is the past chair of WG13.4/2.7 (User Interface Engineering), and active in WG13.2 and WG13.5 as well. Fabio chaired INTERACT 2005 in Rome, and was recipient of an IFIP Silver Core Award in 2013.

Clarisse Sieckenius de Souza (Brazil)

Clarisse is the major HCI researcher in South America. She has carried out significant research work on Semiotics and HCI. Although not the main organizer of Interact 2009 in Brazil, Clarisse was a strong supporter of the conference. She is the past representative of Brazil in TC13, and was inducted to the CHI Academy in 2013.
