Project members will participate in the 2014 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC) conference July 28–August 1 in Melbourne, Australia.
- For the third year in a row, Brad Myers will be among the authors honored with the Most Influential Paper Award for important influences on VL/HCC research or commerce over the last 10±1 years. This year, Brad and his co-authors, Christopher Scaffidi and Mary Shaw, earn the honor for their 2005 VL/HCC paper, “Estimating the Numbers of End Users and End User Programmers.” [Press Release]
- Project member will present three papers and two showpieces.
Oregon State University’s School of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science posted an article, “$3 Million Grant Aims to Advance Exploratory Programming,” featuring the research of Martin Erwig and Margaret Burnett. [PDF]
We met in Chicago on September 28–29 for the project kickoff meeting. The meeting was very productive as we learned more about each other’s research and developed a plan to integrate our research interests.
