Each year the Computer-Human Interaction (CHI) Conference attracts the world's leading researchers and practitioners in the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) from businesses and universities to share ground-breaking research and innovations related to how humans interact with digital technologies. The Association for Computing Machinery's (ACM) CHI conference is the world's premiere conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, presenting a highly selective showcase of the very best advances across the disciplines of computer science, cognitive psychology, design, social science, human factors, artificial intelligence, graphics, visualization, multi-media design and other disciplines. The theme for CHI 2015 is "Crossings" as in crossing borders, crossing boundaries, crossing disciplines, crossing people and technology, crossing past and future, crossing physical and digital, or crossing art and science. source: chi2015.acm.org
George Fitzmaurice is a Director of Research at Autodesk. He recently reported some good news regarding the CHI 2015 Conference. Autodesk Research got 3 papers accepted to the conference. This is an outstanding result as the acceptance rate this year was only 23%. George was also very excited to announce that all three of these papers received Best of CHI Honorable Mention Awards, which honor exceptional submissions designated as the top 5% of all submissions.
Way to go Autodesk Research!
In addition, Autodesk Research has a fourth paper accepted to the "alt.chi" track (a forum for controversial, risk-taking, boundary pushing content).
