SIGCHI Special Recognition Award

The SIGCHI Special Recognition Award is presented to individuals whose vision or works or achievements have significantly influenced and broadly shaped our conceptions of human-computer interaction. Recipients come from a broader population than other SIGCHI awards. For example, they need not be members of the ACM SIGCHI community, and they may not consider human-computer interaction to be their primary field.  Recipients’ contributions are not restricted to specific categories: any academic, applied, educational or other achievements will be considered as long as they comprise a significant influence on HCI. Unlike other awards, the Special Recognition Award is awarded intermittently, where possible nominees are suggested and discussed by the awards committee.
