Earlier today, we sent an email about the HCI research participant pool. However, the link we included was incorrect. To sign up, please go to https://waterloohci.sona-systems.com. The full corrected email is below.
The Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Lab at the University of Waterloo invites you to participate in future HCI studies and experiments!
Our research group focuses on improving the ways computers can help people lead more productive, happy, and healthy lives, at home, work, or play. The following is a selection of our areas of research: sketch recognition, usable privacy and security, pen-based interfaces and crowdsourcing.
In order to streamline the participant recruitment process, we are creating a participant pool for HCI research. As a member of the pool, you will be notified whenever a new study becomes available. Agreeing to be contacted does not obligate you to take part in any study; you may decide to participate in the specific study at the time of each contact. If you are interested, please visit https://waterloohci.sona-systems.com and sign up. Upon sign up, you’ll be asked to provide your name, email, gender, age and education background. Your name and contact details will be available only to members of the research team. This information will be accessed over an encrypted network and securely stored in a datacenter indefinitely until you delete your account, at which point the information will be deleted. You can also withdraw from the pool at any time. The creation of the participant pool has been reviewed by, and has received ethics clearance through a University of Waterloo Research Ethics Committee. If you have any questions or privacy concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Come out to our last event on *Monday, April 4*! We'll have a prof talk by Dr. Craig Kaplan, as well as a joint CSC/WICS EOT; the prof talk starts at *5PM in MC Comfy*, and the EOT will be after. Food will be provided!
The talk will be on Surrounding a Polygon: Dr. Craig Kaplan will explore the problem of surrounding a polygon with copies of itself. This problem raises a number of fascinating mathematical questions, and we can use software as an experimental tool to probe the answers to those questions.
He'll also present known mathematical and computational results related to surrounds of polygons, and discuss what they say about larger open questions in tiling theory. Finally, he will also show how the task of surrounding individual polygons can make for fun and challenging puzzles, and say a bit about his experience creating an app based on those puzzles.
Also, the HCI (Human Computer Interaction) Lab is looking for people to participate in future HCI studies and experiments; please see the attached pdf for more information on how to sign up.
Thanks! Hope to see you all at the event :) Naomi _______________________________________________ Computer Science Club General Announcements This announcement may be discussed on our newsgroup uw.csc
