HOME>>ABOUT US>>AUTISM RESEARCH NETWORK
In May 2015, after years of preparations, the Autism Research Network, the city’s only research center and one of the few in China, was founded to facilitate service-based learning and undergraduate research at this young, vibrant and highly promising university in the city of Wenzhou. So far, a number of researchers from both within WKU and around the world have joined our efforts. Over the past months, a number of our computer science students have been working on a wide variety of applications for technology-enabled diagnosis, assessment and intervention on autism under our supervision.
Today, less than a year after the center has been founded, our works have been recognized nationally and internationally. We have published five papers in international conferences including the prestigious 2015 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (ACM UbiComp 2015) and 2016 International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (HCII’2016). One of the projects supervised by another Computer Science faculty Dr. Pinata Winoto has recently taken the third prize in China as part of the high-profile Microsoft Imagine Cup 2016, the world’s premier student technology competition!
