Alan Newell
Alan Newell, Emeritus Professor at Dundee University, has spent over forty years conducting HCI research, primarily into supporting elderly and disabled people. He founded and headed the University's School of Computing, and later set up within it the Queen Mother Research Centre, now one of the largest academic groups in the world researching digital systems for older and disabled people. His team developed stenograph transcription systems and television subtitling systems for the deaf and hearing-impaired, and a range of communication systems for non-speaking people. More recently the team has investigated techniques for use in studying older people, including those with dementia, and for developing systems to support them. Alan pioneered the use of Interactive Professional Theatre for gathering requirements and increasing awareness of this field. Since then he has made presentations of Interactive Theatre events at a number of international conferences, showing how this technique addresses the challenges that older people face with technology. He has published widely, and has given numerous keynote lectures at conferences in Europe, North America and Japan, including InterCHI 1993 and ASSETS 2002. Jointly with colleagues, he received best paper awards at the IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, and at the ACM Conference on Assistive Technologies. In his recent book "Design and the Digital Divide" he describes his research and the insights he has gained from it. He was a Deputy Principal of Dundee University between 1992 and 1995. He is a Member of the Order of the British Empire, a Fellow of the British Computer Society, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapy. He was named ACM Fellow in 2006 for his contribution to computer-based systems for people with disabilities, and was awarded the CHI Social Impact Award in 2011.
