The Sasada Award is instituted in the memory of Prof. Tsuyoshi Sasada (1941-2005), former Professor of 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 by a selection committee comprising
- One member from the Osaka Lab (Prof. Atsuko Kaga, Osaka University)
- One collaborator or colleague of Tee (Prof. Alleppo Liu, Asia University)
- CAADRIA President (Prof. Teng-Wen Chang, NYUST), and
- One CAADRIA Fellow, who will act as chairman (Prof. Tom Kvan, University of Melbourne)
