The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction. CHI – pronounced ‘kai’ – is a place where researchers and practitioners gather from across the world to discuss the latest in interactive technology. We are a multicultural community from highly diverse backgrounds who together investigate new and creative ways for people to interact. CHI 2019 was the first time that CHI has taken place in the UK and was hosted at the Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow.
Our theme was ‘Weaving the Threads of CHI’. This is reflected in our celtic knot logo, a symbol of strength and friendship. Threads are interconnected and interwoven, without clear beginning or end. We are the threads of CHI, people from different disciplines, cultures, sectors, communities, backgrounds – designers, researchers, practitioners – weaving together into one community, with the common purpose of technology that works for people and society.
If you were unable to join us in Glasgow, or want to catch up on what you missed, check out our playlist of presentation recordings.
