Drexel University College of Computing & Informatics PhD in information studies student Diana Kusunoki
and Assistant Professor Aleksandra Sarcevic, PhD
received a Best Paper Honorable Mention award at the 18th ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW)
, which will take
place March 14-18, 2015 in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Their paper, “Designing for Temporal Awareness: The Role of Temporality in Time-Critical Medical Teamwork
,” describes the role of temporal information in emergency medical teamwork and how time-based features can be designed to support the temporal awareness
of clinicians in this fast-paced and dynamic environment.
Kusunoki and Sarcevic will present the paper at CSCW on Wednesday, March 18, 2015. According to ACM SIGCHI guidelines
, the “Best of CSCW" awards program identifies up to five percent of total
submissions as “Honorable Mention” and one percent of total submissions as “Best” awards.
’s research interests are in the areas of participatory design, computer supported cooperative work, human-computer interaction and medical informatics.
, a Drexel faculty member since 2011, has research interests in the areas of computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), human-computer interaction (HCI)
and medical informatics. She is the past recipient of multiple federal grant awards including a 2013
National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award
. She received her PhD and MLIS in Library and Information Science from the School of Communication and Information (SC&I) at Rutgers.
CSCW is the premier venue for presenting research in the design and use of technologies that affect groups, organizations, communities, and networks.
Bringing together top researchers and practitioners from academia and industry who are interested in the area of social computing, CSCW encompasses both
the technical and social challenges encountered when supporting collaboration. The development and application of new technologies continues to enable new
ways of working together and coordinating activities. Although work is an important area of focus for the conference, CSCW also embraces research and
technologies supporting a wide variety of recreational and social activities using a diverse range of devices.
