CMU at CHI 2023
The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems will take place from April 23-28, 2023, in Hamburg, Germany. Commonly known as “CHI” (pronounced “kai”), this is the premier international conference on human-computer interaction.
Human-computer interaction is an interdisciplinary field that benefits from researchers with a wide variety of skills. Authors from the Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII), as well as other Carnegie Mellon University schools and disciplines, contributed to more than forty accepted papers at the conference this year.
“I am proud that CMU continues to be one of the top academic contributors to the CHI conference. We’re delighted to have so much participation and to have so many people attend the premier conference in our field,” said Brad Myers, HCII Geschke Director and Professor. “It is also great to see the achievements of our HCII alumni and to see them succeeding as well.”
We celebrate the following awards and research affiliated with Carnegie Mellon University authors at CHI 2023:
