Design Forum NEW!
CHI 2002 and AIGA Experience Design offer the FORUM to explore the intersections of the SIGCHI and AIGA design communities. The FORUM presents a two-day program
of speakers, panels, and in-depth case studies that explore design contexts such as Web sites, software applications, mobile device interfaces, pervasive computing, virtual reality, and interactive television. The FORUM is the event
to attend to hear the latest about design and evaluation methods and methodologies, philosophy of design, and design artifacts. It also offers opportunities to interact with fellow design practitioners of all kinds.
Each year, the Development Consortium sets out to look at issues and directions that the HCI community and SIGCHI should develop in the coming years. This year the development consortium brings South Africans and international participants together with a common goal:
to explore cultural experiences across a range of interactive technologies and applications, in various sectors vital to the growth of South African society and economy.
The Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for a group of invited doctoral students to explore their research interests in an interdisciplinary workshop with other students and a group of experienced researchers.
Tutorials are courses that offer extended interactions with expert instructors. The courses available at CHI 2002 represent the leading edge of current practice and research in human-computer interaction. Tutorials cover emerging technologies and markets, along with usability methods and techniques. In-depth training in specialized areas is also provided. The tutorial program has been designed to provide diversity and depth, and to appeal to researchers and practitioners.
Workshops provide an extended forum for small groups (15-20 people)
to exchange ideas on a specific topic of common interest. Workshops
will be held on sunday and monday, 21 April and 22 April 2002, 9:00-17:30.
