SIGCHI (http://www.sigchi.org/), is the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction and is a volunteer led organisation. This SIG is an opportunity to learn about SIGCHI, what work it undertakes, what roles its volunteers take on and how you might be able to get involved.
SIGCHI is a worldwide organization that provides a forum for the exchange of ideas among all people interested in the roles computing technology plays in human activity, including computer scientists, behavioral scientists, system designers, interaction designers, usability professionals, and end users. SIGCHI aims to serve its members, ACM, organizations concerned with the manufacture, distribution, and use of interactive systems, and the public at large as a clearinghouse of information for the field of human-computer interaction and as a voice supporting the design and deployment of systems mindful of human-computer interaction concerns.
Join us at this SIG to meet and discuss with members of the Executive Committee (including the ACM SIGCHI Vice President for Conferences) and other senior SIGCHI volunteers.
