Assets 2002 is delighted to have as its Keynote speaker Professor Alan Newell of the University of Dundee.
Professor Newell's interest in research into computer systems to assist people with disabilities began in 1968 at Standard Telecommunication Laboratories. Since that time his work has attracted numerous awards, including the highly prestigious Lloyd of Kilgerran Prize from The Foundation for Science and Technology. He was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire for services to IT and communication for people with disabilities in the 2000 Queen's Birthday Honours list.
As head of the Department of Applied Computing at the University of Dundee, Professor Newell directs one of the largest and most influential groups in the world researching into communication systems for disabled people. His other major research interests are in computer systems in areas of high social impact, and Human Computer Interaction, with a particular focus on the parallels between "ordinary" people operating in "extra-ordinary" environments, (e.g. high work and stress) and "Extra-ordinary" people (e.g. those with disabilities) operating in "ordinary" environments.
He has published over 200 papers, including 80 journal papers, and 16 book chapters, and holds 12 patents.
Professor Newell is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the British Computer Society, Institution of Electrical Engineers, and an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
