The Mile High City is transforming into the “Mile CHI City” this week (May 8-11) as scores of researchers from across the country and around the globe descend on Denver for the Association for Computing Machinery’s annual Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI).
Better known as CHI, the event is the premiere international ACM conference on human-computer interaction (HCI).
Among the throng is the 29-person Georgia Tech contingent. The faculty and students representing Georgia Tech at CHI 2017 are from the College of Computing, Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, and the GVU Center. Together, they have 17 research papers and notes accepted as part of the technical program.
Georgia Tech also boasts an expansive alumni network at CHI. These researchers, along with the faculty and student contingent, will take part in a variety of workshops, panels, courses, and other parts of the CHI technical program. Overall, Georgia Tech ranks in the top ten for participation among the 500 or so institutions represented at CHI 2017.
According to Josh Preston, GVU Center communications officer, “These tools are a great way to create engagement with the global HCI community. They also help to enhance and promote Georgia Tech’s thought leadership position in this flourishing research area.”
