A fantastic closure for the Schema-SID project: Thanks and goodbye

The 5-year project Schema-SID (Academy of Finland, #120583) has come to an end. But what a fantastic closure …

After the April 2012 graduation of Dr. Antti Jylhä with distinction, Juho Kostiainen’s MSc thesis got (another) prize from the Data Center of the City of Helsinki. The ceremony was held on Monday, December 11.

Then Schema-SID secured its (extended) continuation abroad, not in one, but in two excellent possible hosts, by means of a prestigious grant or a tenured position. The choice was hard, but now it has been made.

Finally, the long-awaited book of SID finally appeared in the catalog of the MIT Press. You will find our contribution in the book that is available March 2013 onwards:

C. Erkut, A. Jylhä, and D. Rocchesso, “Heigh Ho: Rhythmicity in sonic interaction,” in Sonic Interaction Design: Fresh Perspectives, Chapter 17, S. Serafin and K. Franinovic, Eds. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 2013, pp. 341–350.

Can there be a better way to close a project by prizes, extended continuation, and a text book? Thanks and goodbye Aalto.
