Allen Newell Award

Alan Newell: Decades of Research on Technology for Seniors
The Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group of the Association for Computing Machinery recently awarded Prof. Alan Newell (School of Computing, University of Dundee, Scotland) its Social Impact Award for his decades of work on making information and communications technology more accessible to seniors. Prof. Newell presented an overview of his work at the ACM CHI 2011 conference in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The following are some of the highlights of his presentation. Newell began by pointing out that the percentage of seniors in the world's population is growing, based on two factors: Newell made the point that designing technology to be accessible is not just an added expense to create something for a small "disabled" population. Newell disputes this, arguing that technology is constantly changing so what people understand and use now won't be "cutting edge" for very long. Newell closed by mentioning some of the projects of his university's Queen Mother Research Centre for information technology to support older and disabled people. He also mentioned his forthcoming book: Design and the Digital Divide: Insights from 40 years research into computer support for older and disabled people (Morgan and Claypool, Summer 2011). We thank Prof. Newell for his informative talk, and congratulate him on his well-deserved Social Impact Award.

Alan had developed the "Talking Brooch" which was an early example of this type of technology. His Fellowship enabled him to meet with the leaders in the field in the US and Canada. Alan has published many papers in this field and has given keynote speeches at international conferences. His book "Design and the Digital Divide" (AF.Newell, Morgan and Claypool 2011), describes his research career in detail, and he credits his Fellowship as a very important stepping stone on his professional path. Alan was awarded an MBE in 2000, and was made an Honorary Fellow of the College of Speech and Language Therapists. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the British Computer Society, and the Association for Computer Machinery; which is the largest and most prestigious computer society in the world. They presented him with the SIGCHI (Special Interest Group in Computer Human Interaction) Award for Social Impact in 2011 and appointed him a member of their Academy in 2012 for his contribution to developing technology to assist older and disabled people. He was a Deputy Principal of Dundee University between 1992 and 1995.
