Lasting Impact Award

The Lasting Impact Award goes to a paper that is at least 10 years old and has had an impact on CSCW as a field.  Nominations are taken from the community, and the decision is made by a committee of senior CSCW scholars. This year’s committee consisted of Cecilia Aragon, Amy Bruckman, Karrie Karahalios, Michael Muller, Bonnie Nardi, Paul Resnick, and Naomi Yamashita.

We’re pleased to announce that the 2020 Lasting Impact Award goes to Stacey D. Scott, M. Sheelagh T. Carpendale, and Kori Inkpen, for their 2004 paper, “Territoriality in collaborative tabletop workspaces.”
