Sangho's paper, title "CodeToon: Authoring Tool for Creating Comics from Code with Story Ideation and Automatic Comic Generation", has been accepted to UIST 2022. CodeToon is an authoring tool for generating coding strips, i.e., comics that correspond to code, which can be used to illustrate and teach abstract computer science concepts. This authoring tool has been adapted to facilitate the explanation of abstract ideas in other domains, e.g., for privacy education. His paper "PrivacyToon: The Design and Evaluation of a Comic-Based Authoring Tool with Creativity Support for Privacy Concepts" received a Best Paper Honorable Mention at DIS 2022.
