Prof. Alan F. Newell, PhD, MBE, FRSE Professor and Head of Department Applied Computing Department of Applied Computing, The University of Dundee Following a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering and a Doctorate in Experimental Psychology, Professor Newell joined Standard Telecommunications Research Laboratories in 1965, working on speech recognition and perception.He was appointed a Lecturer in Electronics at Southampton University in 1970, where he developed NEWFOR, a television subtitling system, the Talking Brooch for speech impaired people, and the Palantype speech transcription system used in the House of Commons and in Law Courts in the UK.In 1980 he moved to Dundee University.He has been Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and was Deputy Principal of the University between 1992 and 1995.He was Head of the Applied Computing Department until 2002. Professor Newell's interest in research into computer systems to assist people with disabilities began in 1968 at Standard Telecommunications Laboratories, and in 1995 was awarded the Lloyd of Kilgerran Prize (The Foundation for Science and Technology) for this work.He was a Winston Churchill Travel Fellowship, visiting North America, in 1976, and his other awards include the National Training Award (for assisting children with spelling and writing difficulties), The Guardian Innovation Challenge Trophy for Social Welfare and the British Computer Society Award for Social Benefit.His division is one of the two major research institutes in the world researching into computer systems for people with disabilities.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.He has given many prestigious invited lectures including the Jansson Memorial Lecture to the (UK) College of Speech Therapist, "Phonic Ear Distinguished Lecture" to the American Speech-Language and Hearing Assoc., and keynote speeches at conferences, including "CHI for everyone" at the International Computer Human Interface Conference, Amsterdam, April 1993, and "Computers as Better Partners for Everyone", at Inaugural Conference, Japanese Chapter of the ACM, Tokyo, March 1994.A number of software systems developed by his group have been marketed including PAL, a predictive word processor for people with writing and spelling difficulties and Talk:About, a conversational system for non-speaking people.
