Accepted Workshops

The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction. Workshops are held the weekend before the start of the conference, on Saturday and Sunday, 21-22 April 2018. Workshops are a gathering place for attendees with shared interests to meet in the context of a focused and interactive discussion. They are a great way to discuss emerging and important topics with leaders in the field and a great place to connect with people working in similar areas.

Workshops are organized independently by people from academy and industry. Submission information can be found on the websites of the workshops.

We encourage everyone participating in CHI 2018 to consider attending workshops.
