Involvement and Volunteering

The activities of ACM SIGCHI run on volunteer energy. A range of exciting opportunities are open to people interested in volunteering some time to SIGCHI, its conferences or publications.

How to Volunteer

For most volunteer opportunities, you can directly contact the people listed below via email. It would help if, when you did so, you provided some preliminary information: 
  1. Name 
  2. Contact information (email, phone, fax) 
  3. Current affiliation or job 
  4. Professional societies (especially ACM) 
  5. Description (brief) of relevant interests and experiences 

You can contact any of the officers mentioned below, or you can contact the Vice President for Membership & Communication.

Reviewing for the CHI Conference

The CHI Conference invites members of the HCI community to volunteer as reviewers for several CHI 2014 submission categories.

The CHI Reviewer Volunteer Center is where members of the HCI community can volunteer to be reviewers for the next CHI Conference. Various technical program chairs will review the set of volunteers and contact those who are needed.

Go to the CHI Reviewer Volunteer Center to volunteer as a reviewer for CHI 2014.

Local SIGs

SIGCHI has a growing population of local SIGs world-wide, many of which seek volunteers to assist with chapter operations, special services, speaking at technical meetings, etc. Some locations seek volunteers to start a local SIG. Check out the Local SIGCHI Chapters Index for more information. 

Mentoring Program

Have you been a SIGCHI member for a number of years? Can you remember what it was like when you first joined SIGCHI?

Become a mentor by agreeing to 4 emails and a meeting at the CHI Conference (if you are both attending). Contact: Jean Scholtz

Membership Task Force
