PhD student Sang Yup Lee and Quello Center Director Steve Wildman were awarded the inaugural Katherine B Snow Research Paper Award at the April 2011 conference of the International Telecommunications Education and Research Association (ITERA) for their paper, “The Online Casual Games Industry: A Multisided Platform Perspective.” This was the first “Katherine B. Snow Best Research Paper Award” given to any recipients.
Dr. Wildman explains, “Sang and I both felt honored to be the first recipient’s of ITERA’s Katherine B. Snow Research Paper Award. Many of the analytical challenges raised by the explosion of internet based content and services converge in online casual games, which are the focus of this paper. I would like to think that this award speaks to the quality of grad student-faculty research collaborations flourishing in the Department of Telecommunications, Information Studies and Media, and within the Media and information Studies PhD Program more generally.”
