Kelley Wins First Prize in ACM Student Research Competition
Patrick Kelley, a PhD student in the Computation, Organizations and Society program of the Institute for Software Research, won first place in the graduate category of the Association for Computing Machinery’s (ACM) Student Research Competition Grand Finals.
Kelley, who is co-advised by Lorrie Cranor and Norman Sadeh, won for his research on a “nutrition label” for online privacy – a standardized label that communicates a website’s privacy policies in a way that is as clear and as understandable as the nutrition labels on food packaging. Development of the privacy label concept is continuing in the CyLab Usable Privacy and Security Laboratory directed by Cranor.
Kelley received the first place award, which includes a total of $1,000 in prize money and a medal, at the ACM Awards Banquet in San Francisco on June 26. The Student Research Competition is sponsored by Microsoft Research.
