Congratulations to Gillian Hayes on her Software Engineering Innovation Foundation Award from Microsoft Research for her work on “Empowering Interactive Surfaces with Body-Based Interactions to Provide Step-by-Step Guidance to Children with ASD”.
About the Award:
This year, we received 141 proposals for research grants in foundational software engineering, NUI for digital inclusion, devices and services, and cloud computing. After a thorough review process within Microsoft Research, we selected 16 projects. This is an increase over 2012, when we selected 10 projects.
“Today, research in software engineering encompasses foundational software engineering research, as well as research in the application of software engineering to a wide range of computer science and engineering disciplines. These disciplines include systems and networking technologies, hardware design, programming languages, security, and privacy, to name a few. Microsoft Research actively engages with researchers across these disciplines to advance the state of the art in software engineering applications and tools.”
