Background and Nomination Process
The EUSSET-IISI 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 field. It is granted every year at the ECSCW conference series. The winners will become honorary member of EUSSET – The European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies.
Award Committee: The Award Committee consists of five members and is appointed jointly by the European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (EUSSET) and the International Institute for Socio-Informatics (IISI) currently, the Awards committee is chaired by Mark Ackerman, and selects the winner of the Award. Members of the Award Committee are: Boris de Ruyter, Philips Research; Myriam Lewkowicz, Troyes University of Technology, Geraldine Fitzpatrick, TUWien, and Markus Rohde, International Institute for Socio-Informatics.
The committee gathers nominations for the award and decides who will receive the Award. The Award Committee seeks input from many sources in reaching its decision. It can decide to split the Award among more than one winner. To prevent conflicts of interest, neither current members of the Award Committee nor actors holding official positions in EUSSET or IISI can win the award.
Nominations must be submitted in English and include:
- the name of the nominee,
- his/her university or research institution,
- a outline of his/her previous career (Curriculum Vitae),
- and a factual and informative description of the candidate’s merits, specifically how the nominee meets the criteria for the award
These documents (no more than 12 pages in total) should be sent to the chair of the Awards Committee (Mark Ackerman, firstname.lastname@example.org). Nominations must be submitted by 15th of March every year. The Award is handed over at the ECSCW conference that year.
The European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (EUSSET, www.eusset.eu) 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, www.iisi.de) 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.
The David B. Martin Best Paper Award has been established in memory of the late Dr. David B. Martin, a stalwart member of the ECSCW community and Associate Editor of the CSCW journal.The award is generously sponsored by Naver Labs (previously Xerox Research Centre Europe).
Background and Nomination Process
The Award will be bestowed yearly upon a paper accepted to ECSCW that particularly contributes to the multidisciplinary understanding of society and/or work from a CSCW perspective. While all accepted papers delivering such a contribution will be eligible for the award, preference will be given to papers authored or co-authored by early and mid-career researchers (max. 10 years since PhD).
The award, which amounts to €500, is generously sponsored by Naver Labs (was: Xerox Research Centre Europe) and will be formally presented to the winning paper at the ECSCW conference. The inaugural award was presented at ECSCW 2017 in Sheffield.
The David B. Martin Best Paper Award Committee: ECSCW general chairs and papers co-chairs.
