The Student Paper Award for the #AoIR2019 for Brisbane goes to Alice Witt for their paper, ‘A New Black Box Methodology: The challenges and opportunities of interrogating the moderation of images depicting women’s bodies on Instagram’, was reviewed amongst the 45 accepted student papers and is regarded the most outstanding paper of those submissions for this year.

Specifically, we were most interested in this paper because of its focus on the Instagram platform and the seemingly automatic representation of women’s bodies, the increasing significance of this very important subject area, and also because of the innovative methodological approach. These three aspects made the paper the most interesting and stand-out student paper of the conference.

You will be able to hear Alice’s paper and meet them in Brisbane, Saturday, 05/Oct/2019: 11:00am – 12:30pm.

We would also like to recognize, Brydon Timothy Wang’s Paper, Can We Automate Trust? Assessing the Trustworthiness of Machine Superintendents on Smart City Building Projects with an Honorable Mention.
