HCI Consortium workshop offers students opportunity to attend

Registration for the 2011 Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Consortium workshop to be held June 14-18 is now open.

The HCI Consortium was founded in 1988 as a means of fostering interaction among universities, industries, and government research laboratories interested in promoting academic training, basic and applied research, and technology transfer in the area of Human-Computer Interaction. Membership is by organization and only employees of member organizations are eligible to participate in the activities of the organization.

The Annual Workshop is organized around a theme each year and may feature invited speakers on the topic. The workshop includes one-and-a-half hour sessions with 45-minute presentations followed by extensive discussions along with alternative formats and poster sessions.

The theme of this year’s workshop is “How We Know What We Know.” The event will be held at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, Calif.
Frank Ritter, professor of information sciences and technology, said that all College of IST staff and faculty are welcome to attend. He encouraged students to apply for two student invitations, which provide support for attendance.

Students wishing to apply should send applications to Ritter at 5 p.m. Feb. 26  Applications should consist of:

-- A CV

-- A title and abstract of a talk that would be presented in the “boaster” session

-- A plain-text email indicating Ph.D. status, year in the program, advisor as a reference, and 50-200 words on how attending will help the student’s career plans.
