The travel grant partially supported my travel to the ACM Interactional Conference on Intelligent User Interface (IUI) 2015 where I presented my paper and participated the student consortium. It was my first attendance at the IUI and, throughout the conference, I was able to expose myself to various research topics and colleagues that I wasn’t familiar with. I enjoyed friendly and nurturing atmosphere of the student consortium. I’m assured that this experience will benefit my future research. I greatly appreciate the support from the SIGAI for and hope other students can be supported in their future attendance at academic conferences like the IUI.
