Rakan Alseghayer received the Diversity and Inclusion Award at the Ph.D. forum of the 22nd IEEE International Conference on Mobile Data Management (MDM 2021) for his work entitled "Racoon: Rapid Contact Tracing of Moving Objects Using Smart Indexes"

Rakan is a Ph.D. student in Computer Science, working in the ADMT Lab, with Dr. Panos K. Chrysanthis and Dr. Constantinos Costa.

Rakan received the award for an overall inclusive presentation, which is gender-neutral (in narrative and in figures), avoids exclusionary examples, illustrates color blind inclusive graphs (with patterns and not only colors), is organized in easily readable slides and figures and achieves clarity of embedded video/animations.
