CHI Lites 2019 brings you an evening of nine bite-sized talks on the future of life with technology.

An informal counterpart to the 2019 CHI conference on Human-Computer Interaction, which will bring more than 3000 international
researchers to the SEC in Glasgow, CHI Lites offers an exclusive program that is open to the public.
Come along to learn about emerging research and hear thought-provoking insights from nine experts from across the globe.
During the interval, attendees will be able to view interactive demos and continue the conversation over drinks and canapes.

CHI Lites will be video-recorded, and photos and videos showing audience members may be shared on social media.

Tickets are £8 and registration is now open!
