Asian Development Committee

Thanks to the Asian Development Committee (ADC) led by Yoshifumi Kitamura over the last six years, ADC has successfully activated HCI research and practices in Asia. Building on the foundations of what the ADC has achieved in the past years, we are now moving into the next stage: an evolution stage where we focus on building bridges to strengthen the Asian HCI community. The ADC will now be replaced by a new Steering Committee (Asian SIGCHI Committee: ASC) that will be formed by the end of January, 2022.

Council of Steering Committee Chairs

When a conference has been organized under the auspices of SIGCHI with the (co-)sponsored status (of at least 50%), the VP for Conferences will support the creation of a steering committee (SC) for that conference (if not already existing). The chair of this committee will be the privileged contact point with SIGCHI EC and VP for Conferences providing feedback on the issues faced by the conference series and transferring information and procedures to the organizers of the next conferences of that series. The chair will become a member of SIGCHI Council of Steering Committee Chairs (CSCC).

Interim Chair: Andrew Kun, Vice President for Conferences,
