Professor Mirco Musolesi awarded 10-year Impact Award at ACM UbiComp 2021
4 October 2021
Professor Mirco Musolesi was awarded the 10-year Impact Award for the paper “EmotionSense: a mobile phones based adaptive platform for experimental social psychology research” at ACM UbiComp 2021.
ACM UbiComp (https://www.ubicomp.org/ubicomp2021/) is the flagship ACM conference in the area of Ubiquitous Computing.
Mirco Musolesi and colleagues were awarded the prestigious 10-year Impact “test-of-time” award that is given to papers that had a strong impact on the UbiComp research community in the past 10 years. The original paper was published at ACM UbiComp 2010.
The citation of the award is the following:
“This work proposed a mobile platform that collects sensor data from mobile phones running Nokia’s Symbian OS and uses that to infer emotions as well as social interactions. The software produced was also open-sourced (which was rare at the time), and this allowed other researchers in the community to perform in-the-wild, large-scale social psychological studies.
This use of mobile sensing to understand user emotions was an extremely novel use case at that time and this work has inspired a wide variety of future studies published at later UbiComp and other mobile sensing venues.”
