World’s preeminent showcase for interactive technology opens April 21st

At CHI 2018, thousands of the world’s top researchers, scientists, and designers gathered to explore new ideas. Presenters from companies such as Google, Facebook and Spotify joined scholars from universities including Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Carnegie Mellon and the University of Waterloo to present their latest research, solve their hardest problems, learn new material and build their networks at this year’s ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, (CHI 2018) from 21 April – 26 April at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal, Canada.

Our press kit offered a glimpse of what the conference had to offer. Take a look at the press reporting on CHI 2018 below.
