This one-day event, co-organized by CWI DIS researcher and CHI NL board member Abdallah El Ali, will feature a full program, spanning presentations of research papers, posters, outreach talks, as well as three exciting demos. We will also have a wonderful keynote presentation by CWI DIS researcher Steven Pemberton, who was one of the early co-founders of CHI NL. This year he has also been awarded the ACM SIGCHI Lifetime Practice Award.
The overarching aim of this event, wherein CWI is a sponsor, is to bring members of the Dutch HCI community together, and open to all who are interested in learning more about HCI research and practice. CHI NL is an organization that aims at connecting, supporting, and representing the Human-Computer Interaction community in the Netherlands. CHI NL has recently been instated as an official local ACM SIGCHI chapter and has identified the groups in the Netherlands actively doing research in HCI.
CWI and the CWI DIS group very much look forward to welcoming researchers and practitioners across Dutch institutions on 22 June!
CWI’s DIS research group focuses on facilitating and improving the way people use interactive systems and how people communicate with each other. We combine data science with a strong human-centric, empirical approach to understand the experience of users. This enables us to design and develop next generation intelligent and empathic systems. We base our results on realistic testing grounds and data sets, and embrace areas such as ubiquitous computing, human-centered multimedia systems, and languages.
