1. Public Policy (Jonathan, or Gerrit) Jonathan L has been active in working with getting policy issues aired within SIGCHI, including at CHI 2011. We now have an active listserver for CHI-Policy. Public policy info has been updated on sigchi.org. Our input to the National Academies Report has been included in the ACM response. Jonathan is inviting people to join the International Public Policy Committee. 2. Education (Jenny or Elizabeth) Update from Jenny Preece. Jenny and Elizabeth are in the process of recruiting a committee. Some thoughts on role of education efforts in SIGCHI, such as education-oriented activities and events at the CHI conference. Framing... curricula or best practices? What might be a good approach? An invited workshop on the topic would be a great start. One issue to consider: What's the scope? Graduate, professional, undegraduate? Jenny and Elizabeth will bring a plan back to the EC for approval. 3. Publicity (Elizabeth) Elizabeth is actively recruiting a potential Adjunct Chair for Publicity 4. Local Chapters (Gerrit) Gerrit is recruiting a potential Chair for Local Chapters. 5. Small conferences (if needed - Philippe) No update 6. Emma Candy Award (Gerrit) The SIG Governing Board has approved this, now it's being considered by the ACM Awards Committee. 7. Awards Dinner 2011 (Scooter or Gerrit) It will be hosted by the Vancouver Convention and Visitors Bureau. 8. CMC (Scooter) CHI 2012 Committee finalizing Papers Chair Starting with CHI 2011 - *all* authors of a paper must be registered in PCS Scooter has identified some potential candidate chairs for 2014. (Scooter's goal is to get all the CHI Conference leadership teams in place up through CHI 2014, so we can really concentrate on CHI 2015). CMC: Next step is for Scooter to arrange the first meeting. 9. CHI Communities (Dan) Update on software infrastructure development. Current contractor may not be the right person to do it (in his own opinion). Will work with ACM to see if there's another contractor they work with whom they think would be a better fit.
