Maureen C. Stone is an American computer scientist, specializing in color modeling.[1]


Stone has bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign and another master's degree from the California Institute of Technology.[2] She worked for many years at Xerox PARC; after leaving PARC, she founded a consulting firm in the Seattle, Washington area in 1998, and is an adjunct professor in the School for Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada.[3]

Stone was program chair for SIGGRAPH in 1987,[4] and editor-in-chief of the journal IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications from 2007 to 2010.[5][6]


Stone began working in computer graphics in the early 1970s, as part of the PLATO project at the University of Illinois.[4] She is the author of the book A Field Guide to Digital Color,[7] and has performed pioneering research on color management for digital printing.[8] She has also collaborated with colleagues from PARC on research in human–computer interaction; some of her highly cited works in this area concern snapping to nearby objects in point and click interfaces,[9] transparent user interface elements,[10] and interaction with high-resolution video displays.[11]
