CHI Steering Committee

The CHI Steering Committee is responsible for promoting and maintaining the ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems as the premier international conference in the broad field of Human-Computer Interaction. It ensures that the strategic objectives defined by SIGCHI Executive Committee are met and provides support to CHI conference organizers. This committee establishes objectives and quality criteria for the CHI conference and ensures that the mechanisms for accomplishing these goals are put in place. It also serves as a focal point for communications between the CHI Conference Committee, CHI attendees, the SIGCHI EC, and the ACM Headquarters Staff.

The CHI Steering Committee was formed in July 2016 with a three-year timeline to set up the committee, to define functioning rules (to be approved by SIGCHI EC), and to gather data and knowledge about the CHI conference (to be used in defining strategic evolutions) and its organization processes. The CHI Steering Committee is about to complete this data-gathering and ramping-up phase and will transition into its steering and visioning phase in 2019.
