CHI 2018 Telepresence Application
We will be providing the opportunity for people to remotely attend the CHI conference via telepresence technologies. Our goal is to increase access to the conference for remote participants who would otherwise be unable to attend due to mobility impairments, chronic health issues, or temporary travel limitations. If you are interested in remotely participating in CHI 2018, please fill out the following application. If you are selected to participate, we will contact you with more details on how to register for the conference.

Time Slots
Next we need to know when you think you'll want to use a Beam. If your application is successful, we will allow you to sign up for specific time slots later. For now, just give us a quick idea of your likely usage.

Remember, you can view all talks online (except plenaries) via live streaming so you won't be attending talks with the Beam. During sessions, there is lots you can do in a Beam though - you can schedule meetings with people, view demos, view the art show, look at CHI Late-Breaking-Work posters, and more.

A list of weekend events is here: https://chi2018.acm.org/weekend-activities/
The conference program for Monday to Friday is here: https://chi2018.acm.org/attending/schedule/

Please estimate when you would like to use a Beam.
If you are accepted to a workshop, please tell us the workshop name and number.
