The CHI Is the LimitCHI 99, "The CHI Is the Limit," posed the questions: What are the limiting factors to the success of interactive systems? How can we enable users to overcome those limits? What techniques and methodologies do we have for identifying and transcending limitations? And just how far can we push those limits?
At CHI 99 we met experts in the art and science of designing cutting-edge human-computer interaction... made and renewed connections with HCI researchers, designers, and developers from diverse backgrounds... marveled at demonstrations of new and unique designs and design processes... interacted with people who share a passion for finding ways to let users focus on their work or play, not on the technology they are using... learned how to apply state-of-the-art techniques in our own work... listened to provocative interviews with some of the most interesting people working in HCI today... and celebrateed during the conference reception at the dazzling Carnegie Museums.
The setting for CHI 99 was Pittsburgh, known as the "Renaissance City." Once a gritty steel-making town, Pittsburgh is now one of the high-tech banking and finance centers of the world. It is a highly walk-able city with an abundance of fine universities, museums, restaurants, parks, waterfront, and sight-seeing opportunities.
