Other Events

This page has a list of other events that might be of interest to CHI 2019 attendees and the CHI community. Please note that these events are not part of CHI 2019 and are not affiliated with the conference. These were submitted by community members during an open call for information, prior to the conference.


ACM Pervasive Displays 2019

The Eighth ACM International Symposium on Pervasive Displays (PerDis) will take place from June 12-14 in Palermo, Italy. PerDis brings together researchers from various disciplines with a common interest on the opportunities and challenges raised by the emergence of pervasive display systems as a new communication medium for public and semi-public spaces. As a targeted topic venue, Pervasive Displays offers participants a unique opportunity to network with a diverse but focused research community, resulting in an extremely lively event with all the energy and excitement that characterizes the emergence of a new research area.

HCID Open Day 2019 – Design for Good

The HCID Open Day is a free mini conference run by the Centre for Human Computer Interaction Design (HCID) at City, University of London. The theme for this year is ‘Design for Good’ with a focus on how design can be used to positively impact society, designing for inclusion and the moral implications of design. The Centre for Human Computer Interaction Design (HCID) have chosen this topic as we believe it reflects the kind of work we are currently doing and that all designers have the power to enact positive change. We believe CHI attendees will be inspired by our theme and it would be a great opportunity for them to meet collaborators also interested in positive change.

Interacción 2019

The 20th International Conference on Human Computer Interaction (Interacción 2019), is an international event promoted by AIPO, the Asociación de Interacción Persona-Ordenador and CHISpa, the Spanish chapter of ACM SIGCHI. Its main objective is to promote and disseminate the recent advances in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

Interacción 2019 will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners involved with HCI in Spain and Latin-America, and in other parts of the world. It aims to bring together people interested in any aspect of HCI and Interaction Design, to enable them to share their experiences, exchange their ideas, learn from one another, and promote collaboration in HCI research and development.

International Conference on Conversational User Interfaces

CUI 2019 looks to bring together the ACM SIGCHI and ISCA communities together in looking and speech and text based conversational user interfaces. We have two prominent keynote speakers lined up (Cosmin Munteanu, University of Toronto Mississauga; Susan E Brennan, Stony Brook University) and will have a selection of Showcase presentations from leading researchers in the field.

We have a broad scope of topics for submissions covering a variety of HCI-related topics, including but not limited to: voice user experience, speech interfaces, theory and method development, chatbots, dialogue management, design insight, and multimodality.

Accepted submissions will be published and indexed in the ACM DL. We are accepting 6-8 page Full Papers (April 12th deadline) and 2 page Provocation Papers (May 17th deadline). Head to for full details.


INTERACT conferences are an important platform for researchers and practitioners in the field of human-computer interaction (HCI) to showcase their work. Over the years, the conferences have attracted researchers from several countries and cultures.

European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics

India HCI 2019

Today, the domain of HCI is being significantly shaped by intelligent, autonomous and self learning systems and technologies. The HCI and Design communities in both academia and industry are seeking an innovative competitive edge by investing in AI driven machine intelligence. HCI has long recognized agency, the sense of human freedom to manipulate interactions with technology. Today, as our everyday agentive interactions increase the involvement of technology there is a need to examine the possible intersections between technology, human agents and the rise of intelligent systems in HCI. As we explore the overlap between HCI, the sense of agency, and interactions among humans and computers, an overarching consideration is to discuss the potential implications of self-learning systems for interaction design in a community of technology users and intelligent machine interfaces. IndiaHCI2019 will focus and examine the interplay of human and machine agency in an increasingly complex world of intelligent HCI.

SIGGRAPH Asia 2019

The 12th ACM SIGGRAPH Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques in Asia will take place in Brisbane, Australia at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC). The annual event, which rotates around the Asian region, attracts the most respected technical and creative people from all over the world who are excited by research, science, art, animation, gaming, interactivity, education and emerging technologies.

Halfway to the Future 2019

We have confirmed keynotes from some of HCI’s most influential researchers, each of whom anchors a panel that explores the past, present, and future of key areas of interest: Ubiquitous Computing (Yvonne Rogers, UCL); Mixed Reality (Steve Benford, University of Nottingham); Artificial Intelligence, Humans & Machines (Lucy Suchman, Lancaster University, with Alex Taylor, City, University of London); Arts & Design-led Approaches (Bill Gaver, Goldsmiths, University of London); Public & Private Spaces (Christian Heath, King’s College London); and New Approaches to Research & Design (Susanne Bødker, Aarhus University). Our CfP for 6,000-word papers on current work and 2,000-word imaginings of the future of each topic is open until 21 June, 2019.

Given the multidisciplinary nature of the symposium, a wide range of SIGCHI communities can benefit. Specifically we point to the panels organised around topics of concern to a broad CHI audience (Benford, Bødker, Suchman / Taylor), plus strong historic relevances to the CSCW (Heath), Ubicomp (Rogers), and DIS (Gaver) communities. We are striving to make this event as inclusive as possible. Please register expressions of interest at
