HCI Research Theme: SICSA Pre-CHI day 2021: “Methods in the Madness”

Date(s) - 06/05/2021
9:00 am - 12:30 pm

It’s just a few weeks until CHI 2021, and in keeping with tradition, the SICSA HCI theme is organising a Pre-CHI day to celebrate this year’s contributions from SICSA-affiliated authors.

The event will take place online, and will have two parts — registered participants can attend either or both parts as they are able.

09:00 – 10:30 – CHI 5-minute video watch party

We will curate a video containing as many of the CHI papers that feature SICSA affiliated authors as possible. The video will premiere live on YouTube for members of the community to watch together and discuss, and will remain available after the event.

10:30 – 12:30 – CHI Discussion, Methods in the Madness.

We fully recognise that this year has been incredibly difficult for authors to carry out publishable work, and also collaboratively work with others in achieving this. Following the live video showcase, we will share best practice from successful authors, through a guided discussion with the SICSA community that will focus on the following:

  • Recruiting participants
  • Study adjustment for COVID
  • The remote writing process
  • The remote rebuttal process
  • Any other area related to the HCI publication process that has changed over the last year

Register for the event.

Note that SICSA has also funded a limited number of Uber Eats vouchers available for those who want to have the full Pre-CHI day experience — these will be distributed free of charge on a first-come first-served basis to SICSA members who choose that option on the registration form.

We hope to see you all there on the 6th!
