UCL presence at CHI 2012
This year, UCLIC, together with collaborators from other UCL departments (Dept of Computer Science and Division of Psychology and Language Sciences) and other Universities, had a record bumper crop of papers, notes, videos, meetings and workshops at the CHI 2012 conference! Amongst them we had a few prize winners: Jonathan Back with Anna Cox and Duncan Brumby came home with a CHI best paper award for their paper on 'Choosing to Interleave: Human Error and Information Access Cost' and Amir Kamsin came 3rd in the student poster competition for his poster on 'Personal Task Management: My tools fall apart when I'm very busy!' We also brought along two teams of Masters’ Students who won themselves a place in the Student Design Competition. Kathy Stawarz reports:
“ Early in May I had a privilege to attend CHI 2012 in Austin, Texas. We were invited to present our posters for the Student Design Competition, and UCLIC kindly funded our trip. It was an amazing conference, although slightly overwhelming: 4 days were packed with talks of varied length, poster sessions, and interactive presentations. Especially worth attending were alt.CHI talks covering non-mainstream topics, and Interactivity, where researchers showed their interactive prototypes and even allowed everyone to play with them. The conference also provided plenty opportunities to meet academics and people from the industry. I personally enjoyed MatriarCHI women's lunch the most, as I met there amazing women from various research institutes and had a chance to learn what they do. Overall, CHI proved to be a great place to make new connections, apply for jobs, and learn about interesting research. I would love to attend again.”
To celebrate these achievements, UCLIC hosted a breakfast party for UCL attendees and collaborators on Monday 7 May in Le Cafe Crepe in Austin Convention Centre. Mmm!
