View as: Print Mobile App Share:

ACM's Special Interest Group in Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI) has named Carnegie Mellon University professor Sara Kiesler the winner of this year's Lifetime Achievement Award. A leading social psychologist, Kiesler has extensively researched the social impact of computing, including "flaming," social equalization, open communication, electronic groups, information sharing, and distributed collaboration. She also has applied social psychology and human-computer interaction to robotics, which has helped lay the foundation for human-robot interaction as a new interdisciplinary field. Kiesler has written several books, including "Connections," "Culture of the Internet," and "Distributed Work," with colleagues that address the social implications of the Internet. She is the Hillman Professor of Computer Science and Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon. SIGCHI will honor Kiesler and present a $5,000 honorarium to her at its April 4-9, 2009, meeting in Boston.
