CHI 2002 Launch (Quicktime Video)
We live in a world continuously transformed by new technologies. CHI 2002 will examine lessons that can be learned from past interactive technologies that have changed the way we work, play, communicate, and think. We also will look forward, examining radical emerging technologies such as surgically implanted networked computing devices and nanotechnology. The CHI community should be involved with shaping their progress as early as possible, to guide their development in an ethical, user-centered manner.
We also will look inward to the practices of our community. We are experimenting with new technologies and processes to make the CHI conference more interactive, turning attendees into participants. Visit www.chiplace.org to join in. We want to make all the diverse communities of HCI first-class participants in the conference program: the Practitioner's Special Track is the major innovation designed to achieve this goal.
Join us in Minneapolis! Let's work together to change ourselves, our community, and the world at large!
