2010 China Symposium on Human Computer Interaction


The field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) has been playing an increasingly important role in computing and in our society. Globally and in China locally, HCI is one of the fastest-growing research areas in academia and industry. Following the success of the 2010 and 2011 events, the 2012 symposium aims to continue catalyzing research connections and exchanges for the HCI research community in China, as well as exposing the local community, especially students, to some of the international leading research.

The one-day symposium will consist of 4 distinguished speaker talks given by internationally prestigious researchers from around the world who have made significant impacts to the HCI community; a panel consisting of all the distinguished speakers for general discussions on HCI research; and a demo and poster session to showcase local HCI research.

Due to limited seating, it is advised to register for the symposium in advance by contacting ACM SIGCHI CHINA CHAPTER at Please send your name, company/school/organization, email address, and student status. The registration fee (paid at the door) for the symposium is 200 RMB for general attendees, 100 RMB for CCF members, and free for ACM SIGCHI (including SIGCHI China Chapter) members and full-time students.

The 2012 China Symposium on Human Computer Interaction is co-organized by ACM SIGCHI China Chapter and several prominent research institutes in China. It is sponsored by ACM SIGCHI, Microsoft Research Asia, and Chinese Academy of Sciences. The agenda are as follows:
