Dear colleagues,

I am very pleased to announce that the Lifetime Achievement Award 2019 
has been awarded to Bonnie Nardi.

Bonnie Nardi is Professor (Emer.) in the School of Information and 
Computer Sciences at the University of California, Irvine. An 
anthropologist, she is interested in social theory, computing and 
political economy, and social life on the Internet, especially video 
gaming. Her most recent book, /Heteromation and Other Stories of 
Computing and Capitalism /(co-authored with Hamid Ekbia), was published 
in 2017 by the MIT Press.  Bonnie co-edits the MIT Press Acting with 
Technology Series (with Kirsten Foot and Victor. Kaptelinin). She is a 
senior editor at the journal /Mind, Culture, and Activity,/ the premier 
journal of cultural-historical activity theory. Bonnie is interested in 
radical approaches to sustainability and is a founding member of the 
Computing within LIMITS Workshop Series which annually convenes an 
international group of scholars devoted to understanding how computing 
can be used for alternative economic systems.

The IISI-EUSSET Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to scholars for 
outstanding contributions to the reorientation of the computing field. 
This award recognizes the very best work in shaping the field. It is 
given for a lifetime of innovation and leadership and is honored with 
5,000 Euro. The criteria for selecting the award winner are:

  * Cumulative contributions to the field,
  * Influence on the work of others,
  * Development of new research directions.

The EUSSET-IISI Lifetime Award is the most prestigious award in this 
emerging field. It will be granted at ECSCW 2019 conference, 11th of 
June in Salzburg. The winners will become honorary member of EUSSET – 
The European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies.

*Background Information
*The /European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies/(EUSSET, <>) is a networked organizational 
forum dedicated to the development of technological tools and 
infrastructures that incorporate a human-centered design perspective in 
computing. The members of EUSSET come from a variety of organizations 
and disciplines, but they share a passion for developing a range of more 
integrative, interdisciplinary approaches to the design, development and 
use of new technologies for work, home and play.

The /International Institute for Socio-Informatics /(IISI, 
<>) was founded to investigate into the design of 
computer applications in support of social systems. An interdisciplinary 
group of researchers works at the intersection of computer science, 
social science, learning science, and design. Taking into account 
current developments of the internet, multimedia and mobile computing, 
the main focus of IISI is on a user-oriented and sustainable design of 
information technology.
