Computer Human Interaction Conference Previews Future of Technology and User Interface Designs
CHI 2003: Predicting the Future By Creating IT
Fort Lauderdale, FL / New York, NY (13 February 2003) - Do you want to
know what it will be like to interact with computers 5, 10 or 15 years
from now? If so, come to CHI 2003 April 5-10 in Ft. Lauderdale,
Florida. For one week people from all over the world show how they've
taken ideas which sound like science fiction and made them into reality.
Long time CHI participant and presenter Jared Spool says, "I've been
attending the CHI conference steadily since 1986 and have had the
privilege of seeing the future unfold. Most of the technology we see
today on the internet desktop computers, PDAs, our kitchen appliances
and even our cars started as ideas presented at CHI."
The CHI 2003 program is especially rich in opportunities to preview the
future. Just a few of this year's offerings include: 36 Tutorials on
topics ranging from usability, Web design, new technologies and
accessibility; panels on a gamut of issues including cultural dimensions
of design; new voting technologies and email overload; and the rare
opportunity to actually talk with some of the people behind today's
challenging design problems that will become tomorrow's products.
The annual CHI Conference is the premier worldwide forum for the
exchange of information on all aspects of how people interact with
computers. The conference features a six day program full of
presentations, tutorials, vendor exhibits and networking opportunities.
Researchers, practitioners, educators, and students from around the
world join in exploring and creating the future of computer-human
interaction. Approximately 2400 professionals from over 45 countries
will examine the future of human-computer interaction from April 5-10
in Fort Lauderdale, FL at the Broward County Convention Center.
CHI conferences are sponsored by the Association for Computing
Machinery's Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (ACM
SIGCHI). In addition to ACM, various organizations in the technology industry
support the CHI conference. The CHI 2003 sponsors include: Diamond
Bullet, Microsoft, OSDN Slashdot, Unisys, Yahoo! Inc., National Science Foundation,
IBM, Nokia, Sun Microsystems, User Interface Engineering, Menlo Technology Group and eLearn Magazine.
