Diversity & Inclusion Statement

At CHI 2018 we want every participant to feel welcome, included, and safe at the conference. Moreover, we will do our best to accommodate specific needs such as accessibility, or dietary requirements. We cannot promise to solve every issue, but will try our best. We expect all interactions between CHI members to be respectful and constructive, including interactions during the review process, at the conference itself, and on social media and to abide by the ACM Policy Against Discrimination and Harassment.

CHI 2018 is an Association for Computing Machinery (“ACM”) Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (“SIGCHI”) sponsored conference. The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to the ACM aims and goals. These require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group, that fosters dignity, understanding, and mutual respect, and that embraces diversity. For these reasons, ACM requires all ACM members and members of ACM Special Interest Groups (“SIGs”) to abide by their Policy Against Discrimination and Harassment with respect to their participation in ACM-related activities. ACM also expects registered attendees of ACM- or SIG-sponsored events such as CHI 2018 (“Event Attendees”) to abide by this Policy.

Anyone witnessing or subject to unacceptable behaviour should notify the Conference Chairs.
