Have you ever read about a conference that you’d love to go to, but know that it’s impossible? Impossible because it’s overseas and your university doesn’t support overseas travel? Impossible because your research is in areas not covered by your advisor’s grants? Impossible because your institution has no travel funding whatsoever? Now there is hope.
Recently SIGCHI has been asked to consider the conduct of reviewers for our conferences, including in the open reviewing process of alt.chi. In addition, committee members and the chairs of various tracks in our conferences often face these questions: what is appropriate behaviour and language for reviewing?
SIGCHI is pleased to announce the recipients of its awards for 2017.
Applications are now invited from SIGCHI student members to represent SIGCHI at the 2017 ACM Turing Celebration Event.
The ACM SIGCHI (Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction) is an international society composed of scholars, professionals, and students from around the world. We value and require freedom of expression and freedom of movement to pursue our work, advance interaction technology and contribute to research, development and innovations in human-computer interaction.
SIGCHI now sponsors or co-sponsors 24 different conferences. In 2016 it provided in-cooperation support to a further 39 conferences.
The goal of the SSTG is to pre-approve students for grants before a conference’s earliest submission deadline, so that if a student gets a submission accepted, they can count on having a grant awarded for travel to the conference.
Being a SIGCHI Communication Ambassador is an exclusive opportunity for students, researcher and professionals active in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) around the world to spread the word about SIGCHI’s mission and members’ activities across the globe.
In December 2016 SIGCHI published a call for sponsorship of HCI Summer/Winter Schools. Following a review, the SIGCHI Executive Committee selected seven of the proposals submitted. The selected events will be in Australia, China, Ireland, Poland, Mexico, USA and Switzerland in 2017.
In order to better support students from and currently based in developing countries pursuing HCI/UX, ACM SIGCHI has recently revised the guideline for Gary Marsden Student Development Fund to cover all HCI relevant conferences.

The Asian Development Committee invites participation from our Asian colleagues.
This is news piece from the ACM SIGCHI President on changes to OpenTOC from December 2015. In July 2016 we added a new OpenTOC page to provide a convenient way for you to access to many of our OpenTOC proceedings, and hence access at no charge to the linked papers for a period of one year from the end of the conference.
SIGCHI has established the Gary Marsden Student Development Fund to support postgraduate students from developing countries to attend SIGCHI conferences.
