A 2019 CHCCS Achievement Award from the Canadian Human Computer Communications Society is presented to Dr. Carl Gutwin for his many contributions to the field of humancomputer interaction (HCI) research. We especially note his impactful work on groupware such as inter-personal awareness and the mechanics of collaboration. His work spans the breadth of HCI from very technical systems papers, to inventing new interaction techniques, to exploring the application of social theory to technology design and to his extensive care and rigor in evaluative methods. CHCCS invites a publication by the award winner to be included in the proceedings, and this year we continue the tradition of an interview format rather than a formal paper. This permits a casual discussion of the research areas, insights, and contributions of the award winner. What follows are the edited responses from Carl Gutwin to questions posed by Sheelagh Carpendale that took place during March 2019.
