Imagining SIGCHI Futures

April 22, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC

SIGCHI is turning 40 this year! This milestone gives us an opportunity to not only celebrate and reflect on how far HCI has come as a field, but also imagine its future trajectories. In this open session, we will take stock of SIGCHI’s past and present and envision how it might evolve over the next few decades along the dimensions the community cares about most, such as infrastructures for mentorship, sustainability, accessibility, among others. This will be a precursor to the “SIGCHI Turns 40” SIG at CHI 2022, where we will continue to develop aspirations and, importantly, concrete avenues towards a thriving SIGCHI community. To sustain these brainstorming efforts, this open session and the SIG to follow will inform the workings of the new Futuring SIGCHI committee, through which early career professionals can lead projects that help realize community visions for SIGCHI—look out for an open call in coming weeks and get involved!

Please join this open session via Zoom.

Let us know (via email: sigchi-access@acm.org) if you have any accessibility requests (e.g., CART, SLI), and we will do our best to accommodate them. If possible, please give us a few days to make necessary arrangements.
