The Sasada Award is instituted in the memory of Prof. Tsuyoshi Sasada (1941-2005), Emeritus Professor at Osaka University, co-founder and Fellow of CAADRIA, a prolific researcher and teacher from whose lab over 200 students have graduated, and better known as “Tee” in the community.
The Sasada Award will be given to an individual whose sustained record of contributions demonstrates or promises significant impact on the field of computer aided design. In keeping with Tee’s spirit, the award recipient will have contributed to the next generation of researchers and academics, to the wider profession and practice in computer aided design and research, and earned recognition in peer community.
The Award will be decided annually by a selection committee comprising members from the Osaka Lab, collaborators of Tee, CAADRIA President, and CAADRIA Fellow and announced at the next CAADRIA Conference in Hong Kong during 7-10 April 2010.
