Cliff Lampe, U-M School of Information associate professor, was elected Executive Vice President of the Association for Computing Machinery Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (ACM SIGCHI), a significant honor. In his wide-ranging research on social and technical structures of large-scale technology-mediated communications, Lampe has worked with Facebook, Wikipedia, Slashdot, and Everything2. He also has helped create multiple social media and online community projects.
SIGCHI is the premier, international society for professionals, academics, and students interested in human-technology and human-computer interaction. “SIGCHI is an organization that promotes research and education into the many different branches of human-computer interaction,” Lampe said. “It’s an honor to serve that community and to help promote HCI more broadly.”
