Local SIGCHI Chapters Index

SIGCHI Local Chapters are unique in bringing locally together practitioners, academics and students in the field of HCI.

Chapters offer a range of benefits to their members. While each chapter has its own approach, most offer presentations from invited speakers, networking opportunities, and job boards. Some chapters host their own local conferences and hold contests for students.
