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 China Symposium on Human Computer Interaction, the 2011 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 5 distinguished speaker talks given by internationally recognized researchers from around the world who have made strong impacts to the HCI community; introductory presentations of several local HCI research labs; and poster sessions 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 acm.sigchi.china.chapter@iel.iscas.ac.cn. Please send your name, company/school/organization, email address, and student status.
