This document presents a revised budget proposal of a Writing Workshop to take place in Brazil as part of a set of activities leading to CSCW 2017 in Rio de Janeiro. Changes in this activity reflect the feedback from the SIGCHI Executive Committee. The final approval for this project came from the SIGCHI core CMC under the auspices of the SIGCHI Conference Development Fund
CSCW 2016 Telepresence Program was agreed after discussion to support option 1 as it seems most feasible and cost effective. The alternate proposals were not funded so are not included here. The SIGCHI core CMC agreed to fund this project from the SIGCHI conference development fund
This summary should not be seen as a model for a new proposal. It is being included here for full transparency on this funding. Instead, this document presents a "summary proposal" as the original request for this support came in while the old SIGCHI “formula” was in place. This was finally agreed upon under the new SIGCHI conference development fund in Oct 2015 by the SIGCHI Core Conference Management Committee. The final approval for this project came from the SIGCHI CMC under the auspices of the SIGCHI Conference Development Fund.
The IUI 2016 Student Consortium is similar to the Doctoral Consortium typical to many conferences, but open to students working towards postgraduate degrees at any level. This proposal was approved by the SIGCHI core CMC.
This application is to support CHI PLAY representation at the SIGCHI CMC meeting in San Jose 2015. This was approved by the SIGCHI Core Conference Management Committee.
This application is for funding for three tutorials at the conference for Eye Tracking Research and Applications (ETRA) that takes place at the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, SC, USA, March 14, 2016. ETRA is the largest eye-tracking conference in the USA and focuses on all aspects of eye movement research across a wide range of disciplines. The goal of ETRA is to bring together computer scientists, engineers and behavioral scientists in support of a common vision of moving eye tracking research and its application forward.
The goal of this project is to provide broadband wireless internet connection support that will allow attendees (who need it) to connect to the internet during the conference while on the go. The lessons learned from this experience will help inform other SIGCHI conferences on the use of broadband wireless internet access rather than relying only on fixed wireless infrastructure in conference venues. This was approved by the SIGCHI Core Conference Management Committee.
The goal of this ACM SIGCHI conference development project is to provide financial support for international student SIGCHI members to attend UIST 2016 in Tokyo, Japan. This was approved by the SIGCHI Core Conference Management Committee.
Diversity and inclusiveness are key concerns of UBICOMP/ISWC , for example the conference alternates each year between Asia, Europe and North America. As a key aspect of long term strategy the conference strive to continuously broaden and diversify its base by targeting and supporting young researchers and students from various countries and backgrounds. This strategy is implanted through 3 main pillars: International Student Volunteers, Doctoral Colloquium (DC) and “Broadening the Community”. This proposal requests travel funds to support participants and some hotel support for SVs.
MobileHCI 2016 will be the 18th annual conference and is now one of SIGCHI’s leading and most well known conferences. Independent rankings of the impact of HCI conferences places MobileHCI in the top five conferences for “Top publications - Human Computer Interaction”. We aim to provide modest travel support for doctoral colloquium students to attend MobileHCI. In addition we aim to have a panel at MobileHCI 2016 which will draw upon the steering committee chairs for other SIGCHI conferences, leading figures in industry and though leaders outside of computing. This requested amount will only go someway to ensuring the panel members, who would not normally attend MobileHCI can be encouraged to attend and contribute to the panel. The ACM SIGCHI Adjunct Chair for Specialised Conferences (Aaron Quigley) made this request at the MobileHCI steering committee. As a result he took no part in the decision making on this, instead the past chair and core CMC decided on this.
Reaching out to the future and linking to the past of IUI by supporting students and the participation of 10-year paper impact awardees. The majority of the funding will be used to support student travel to the conference. While travel funding will be open to all graduate students, priority will be given to students who come from countries with historically low participation figures, students that otherwise will not be able to attend the conference, and students that have accepted papers at the conference, the workshops and the student consortium.
The ACM Summer School on Recommender Systems will be held in conjunction with RecSys’17 as a pre-program to the RecSys conference in Como from Aug. 21st to Fri 25th in Bolzano with a welcome reception on Sunday, 20th. The organisers aim for this to be held in conjunction with the Doctoral Symposium (DS) of RecSys’17 being the scientific track of the summer school.
