Our work won IMWUT's Distinguished Paper Award

Published on

Varun and colleagues won an IMWUT Distinguished Paper Award at UbiComp 2022 for their paper, Detecting Receptivity for mHealth Interventions in the Natural Environment.

This work was done in collaboration with Dr. Florian Künzler, Dr. Jan-Niklas Kramer, Prof. Elgar Fleisch, Prof. Tobias Kowatsch, and Prof. David Kotz, and was published in the Proceedings of the ACM on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies (PACM IMWUT), Volume 5.

Here’s the citation from the award committee:

this research is a perfect example of how to improve mobile health interventions by exploring models that help to decide on the fly when the right moment for the intervention has arrived. It reports findings from an in-the-wild study with 83 participants over three weeks and thus constitutes a core Ubicomp research contributions.

Varun accepted the award at last week’s UbiComp/ISWC 2022 Awards Ceremony. Only 3% of papers receive an award every year, so this is a huge honor! Well done to Varun and his co-authors for this outstanding work!
