Applications are now invited from SIGCHI student members to represent SIGCHI at the 2017 ACM Turing Celebration Event.
ACM’s “50 years of the ACM Turing Award” Celebration will be on June 23-24, 2017. At this, ACM Turing laureates will join other ACM award recipients and experts in moderated panel discussions exploring how computing has evolved and where the field is headed. For more details see: https://www.acm.org/turing-award-50.
Applications are due from SIGCHI student members by February 22, 2017.
With travel support provided, the opportunity to meet and interact with such inspirational figures is, we hope, something many student members are excited about.
We look forward to announcing the selected students in mid March here.
