Message to AfriCHI 2016 delegates
Starting on Nov 21st, 2016 is the inaugural African conference for Human Computer Interaction, hosted in co-operation with ACM SIGCHI, AfriCHI 2016.
AfriCHI aims to widen the international participation of Africans in the practise and study of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), and to advance HCI by increasing the awareness of designs, tools, inventions, methods, theories and pedagogies for creating or using technology in Africa.
The SIGCHI Executive Committee is excited to see the growth of the burgeoning HCI community in Africa. We celebrate your vision and commitment to building the profession of HCI in Africa and we congratulate you on your excellent organization of this first all-Africa HCI conference, AfriCHI. We look forward to watching as it blossoms thanks to your work and leadership and we hope to work together with you going forward.
