Howie Goodell

Howie Goodell has a BS and MS in Analytical Chemistry from Northeastern University, and 19 years experience in controls and GUI programming. For the past 4 years he has been the primary architect and implementer of a fully end-user-programmed control system for automating complex semiconductor process equipment (a publication about this system is in preparation.) He is a doctoral candidate in Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and a member of the HCI Research Group there, doing research on end-user programming. He originated and has maintained the End-User Programming Web page since 1997. With Carol Traynor, he organized a successful Special Interest Group in End-User Computing at CHI 97 [4].

Carol Traynor

Carol Traynor is Assistant Professor of Computer Science at St. Anselm College in Manchester NH. She recently received her doctorate in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell. Her doctoral research focussed on a form of end-user programming: developing a Programming By Demonstration approach for Geographic Information Systems. Traynor is a member of the HCI Research Group at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, and continues to do research on Programming By Demonstration.

Traynor was a co-organizer and presenter of a workshop entitled: "Introducing New Technology to Non-Technical Users", at the Massachusetts Education Computing Conference (MECC 94) held in Lowell MA, in June 1994. Traynor also co-organized a Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting on end-user programming at CHI 97 [4]. She has contributed articles to the SIGCHI Bulletin, and has presented at the 1994 Participatory Design Conference (PDC 94), the 1995 ACM SIGCHI conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 95), and the Empirical Studies of Programmers Workshop 7 (ESP 7). She participated in the Doctoral Consortia at ESP 7 and CHI 98. She will make a presentation at the 1998 Participatory Design Conference (PDC 98) in Seattle WA in November 1998.
