I just came back from a road trip to ACM Hypertext’09 with my students, and I’m particulary happy that one of them, Christian Körner, won the 1st place in this year’s ACM Hypertext’09 Graduate Student Research Challenge. Bravo Christian!
The competition was strong, and Christian did a great job in presenting preliminary results from his PhD research on Tagging Motivation. Here are a few links to his competition material:
- Christian’s Poster “Understanding the Motivation behind Tagging (pdf)“
- Christian’s Presentation “Understanding the Motivation behind Tagging (pdf)“
I would also like to congratulate all runner-ups at the competition. All participating students worked really hard to present their research to conference attendees in an engaging way. I really liked the enthusiasm of the students, and the student competition as well as the conference as a whole gave me a bunch of new ideas and perspectives.
