CHI 2010 Hosted Events

Several special workshops will be co-located with CHI 2010. We would like to encourage CHI attendees to explore the opportunities offered by these venues.

Computer Human Interaction Mentoring (CHIMe) Workshop

Dates: April 9 - 10, 2010
Location: Co-located with CHI 2010 in Atlanta, GA

The 2010 Computer Human Interaction Mentoring (CHIMe) Workshop, co-sponsored by the Computing Research Association’s Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research, the Coalition to Diversify Computing, the Empowering Leadership Alliance and the National Science Foundation is a discipline-specific workshop for mentoring young underrepresented minority students in HCI. The workshop provides a unique opportunity for underrepresented minority researchers in HCI to interact with leaders in their field, network, learn about the latest trends in HCI, and present their work to the HCI community for constructive feedback.

We invite graduate students who work in the field of HCI to submit applications for scholarships to attend the workshop. The scholarship will cover travel, lodging and food for the days of the CHIMe Workshop, and student registration fees to attend the CHI 2010 conference after the workshop. Prospective applicants should visit the workshop website.

Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare

Dates: April 10 - 11, 2010
Location: Co-located with CHI 2010 in Atlanta, GA

In recent years, the biomedical informatics community has begun to recognize human-computer interaction (HCI) and better understanding of social and human elements as important to a sound Health IT strategy. Meanwhile, research in human-computer interaction has found healthcare a rich and interesting domain of inquiry. Despite this progress, however, there exists a largely untapped potential to create deeper and more profound connections among the medical, informatics, human-computer interaction, medical sociology and anthropology communities.

The Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare (WISH) will take place April 10th and 11th, 2010 in conjunction with the CHI 2010 conference. This event is designed to foster conversation and bridge communities and will include specialists in biomedical informatics, nursing informatics, medical sociology, human-computer interaction, and related fields.

Organizers: Dr. Gillian Hayes (UC Irvine) (Chair), Dr. Desney Tan (Microsoft Research) (Chair), and Lauren Wilcox (Columbia University) (Student Coordinator)
Sponsors: National Science Foundation, ACM SIGCHI, Microsoft Research
