CHI 2017 Telepresence Application
We will be providing the opportunity for a small number of 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 2017, 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.
The registration fee for telepresence attendance will be the same as the normal in-person registration fee. Are you okay paying this amount?
