St Andrews HCI Research Group


Apr 2013

Pre-CHI day in St Andrews sponsored by SICSA

This year from across SICSA we have at least 16 notes, papers and TOCHI papers being presented at CHI in Paris along with numerous WIPs, workshop papers, SIGs etc. On April 23rd we hosted 35+ people from across SICSA for a Pre-CHI day which allowed all presenters a final dry run of their talks with feedback. This was also an opportunity to inform others across SICSA about their work while allowing everyone an opportunity to snap-shot HCI research in Scotland.
