SIGCHI EC June Meeting
June 29 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm UTC
For this ~45-minute meeting, the agenda is as follows:
Luigi De Russis, Adjunct Chair for Community Support, will present a proposal for “badges” for events supported by the SIGCHI Development Fund. Our goal with these badges is two-fold: (a) to provide a set of guidelines that events can consider in planning their events and making them accessible, sustainable, globally inclusive, etc.; and (b) then for events to signal that these guidelines have been adopted for their target audiences. (10 mins)
Matt Jones, Vice-President for Chapters, will go over the vision of the Chapters Committee that was set up earlier this year. (10 mins)
Nic Bidwell, Adjunct Chair for Sustainability, will lead a conversation on Conferences and the Environment. The SIGCHI Sustainability Committee plans to consider different ways to offset the environmental impact of our conferences. To this end, we will consider the options of the ACM Carbon Offset Program and local/global alternatives for different ecological impacts, and funding strategies to support these. (10 mins)
Neha Kumar, President, will lead a short discussion about the ACM SIGCHI TechNews newsletter. This is a member benefit for SIGCHI Members—should we keep it, make changes to it, discard it altogether? (5 mins)
Pejman Mirza-Babaei, Cale Passmore, Luigi De Russis, and Adriana Vivacqua will quickly go over the current calls we have going for volunteering on the Publications, Equity, Development Fund, Futuring Committees, and the Hybrid Working Group. (5 mins)
We will end with Q&A, per usual. (5 mins)
The EC conducts public meetings on a monthly basis. These take place virtually on Zoom. We welcome participation from members, within time constraints. We will be providing a video recording and meeting notes for all meetings on our website.
Please let us know (via email: email@example.com) if you have specific accessibility requests, and our Accessibility Committee will do their best to accommodate them. We also aim to provide SLI at all meetings.
