10-Year Impact Award in ubiquitous computing to paper co-authored by Idiap Research Institute

WeNet partner Idiap Research Institute was recently awarded, for a paper co-authored a decade ago, in the context of ACM’s International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp).

The event – jointly held in Atlanta (USA) and Cambridge (UK) – featured a “10-Year Impact Award”, which was received by the team of researchers from Cornell University, Dartmouth College, University of Neuchâtel, and Idiap’s Social Computing Group for their joint work on the paper entitled StressSense: Detecting Stress in Unconstrained Acoustic Environments using Smartphones”.

The paper, originally published through UbiComp 2012 in Pittsburgh (USA) was co-authored by Dr. Hong Lu, Dr. Mashfiqui Rabbi, Mr. Gokul T. Chittaranjan, Dr. Denise Frauendorfer, Prof. Marianne Schmid Mast, Prof. Andrew T. Campbell, Prof. Tanzeem Choudhury, and Prof. Daniel Gatica-Perez – who leads the Idiap team working on WeNet.
