Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is concerned with the design and use of digital technology, focusing on the interfaces between people and computers. Over the past two decades computing devices have become ubiquitous. An entire ecosystem of products and services has quickly emerged to support all manner of human activities, bringing with it many opportunities for HCI researchers to understand human experiences with technology. This symposium brings together leading HCI researchers to identify and discuss the grand challenges for HCI research in the next decade. Speakers include Vassilis Kostakos (University of Oulu), Susanne Bødker (Aarhus University), Stuart Reeves (University of Nottingham), Gregory Abowd (Georgia Institute of Technology), Andrew Howes (University of Birmingham) and Yvone Rogers (University College London)
At the closing of the symposium, there will be a short announcement about the new SIGCHI UK chapter, followed by a drinks reception.
