Dec 2008 SIGCHI Ireland Launch Sponsorship
Today we had the SIGCHI Ireland Inaugural Lecture by Professor Alan Dix. He gave an inspiring talk on "Human-Computer Interaction in the early 21st century: a stable discipline, a nascent science, and the growth of the long tail". Thanks to the research startup support my School of Computer Science and Informatics has given me, I was able to sponsor Prof. Dix’s trip. The School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College Dublin sponsored the launch reception after hosting the talk itself! A great event was had by all and we look forward to many such events in the future.
