About the course : he knows the material really well, but a tough grader.
Get ready to hit the books :) No complaints about lectures, but the guy can be a bit of a pedant. INSANE amount of mathematics background required to deal with his questions. Very comical guy, he'd do some pretty elaborate things to be funny in class, which does make it more interesting.
We are just beginning to learn what's possible when we harness the crowd in human-computer interaction.
The goal of this workshop is to stake out a research agenda for our field.
I was sure I got all the questions on the final, but he gave me an F.
I spent days on the assignments just to earn miserable points.
The times in the schedule below are tentative, depending on exactly when CHI schedules the refreshment breaks in the morning and afternoon.
Students enjoy the advantages of a small, vigorous academic community while having access to all courses, facilities, and services of the University of Waterloo and its affiliated Colleges: Conrad Grebel, Renison, and St. Situated within an hour's drive of the Toronto International Airport, Waterloo's 102,000 citizens and businesses are linked by major transportation routes to a marketplace of more than 120 million people, and by high-speed telecommunications to the world.
Conference rates can be found on the CHI 2011 web site.
Only those who have had position papers accepted can attend the workshop.
Knows cs and mathematics very well and explains concepts in a very clear way. Encourages active participation from class (sometimes "voluntolds" people) and answers questions patiently.
Btw, I got As is most other classes, but failed his Shallit is clearly passionate about the material, and does a very good job of organizing a good lecture.
