We were surprised and delighted to receive the ACM Europe Council sponsored award for best paper at CHI 2019! The award-winning paper was selected amongst the 29 Best Paper Award winners at CHI 2019 (themselves selected as the top 1% of 2960 submissions), by members of the CHI 2019 Best Paper Selection Committee. The award acknowledges groundbreaking research for its importance and contribution to the area and to highlight theoretical and practical innovations that are likely to shape the future of computing both in Europe and worldwide.
