HCII @ CHI 2017

May 5, 2017

The Human-Computer Interaction Institute heads to Denver, Colo. for the 2017 ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI). This conference is always a welcome opportunity to reconnect with fellow researchers and friends as well as graduates of our program. This year, the HCII has 26 accepted papers including seven Honorable Mention Awards and two Best Paper Awards.

Professors Brad Myers and Scott Hudson will each be honored with a Lifetime Achievement award. Myers for his prolific research will receive the Lifetime Achievement in Research Award and Hudson for his dedication to the field will be receiving the Lifetime Achievement in Service Award. We are also proud to announce that HCII Ph.D. graduate Jacob Wobbrock, is being honored with the CHI Social Impact Award for his admirable advances in accessibility research. Finally, a team of Master of Human-Computer Interaction students heads to CHI to present their product, Robin, in the CHI Student Design Competition, where they are one of 12 teams selected to compete.
