CHI 2021

CHI 2021

CHI (pronounced kai) is the leading conference in the field of human computer interaction. This year, the conference is organised around the theme of ‘Making Waves, Combining Strengths’. The theme is meant to encourage discussion of industry developments that shake up existing approaches and champion those with different perspectives.

To facilitate the virtual setting, the conference plans to use three ‘rooms’ to organise content. Panels and keynote presentations will run from a live streaming room. There will also be an interactive ‘round table’ intended to replicate the experience of a real-life conference room, which will host the Interactivity, LBWs, SRC, and Doctoral Consortium (poster presentation). Finally, a number of pre-recorded bitesize talks for papers, case studies, journals and awards will run from a further room.

CHI also features a number of interactive workshops, intended to foster community and knowledge creation. They are often in high demand and limited to 12-25 people – so book your space early!
