ACM SIGCHI is the leading international community of professionals interested in research, education and the practical application of human-computer interaction. We enable our members to create and shape how people interact with technology and understand how technologies have an impact in people’s lives.
We aim to enhance our members’ ability to innovate and understand technologies for the greater public good.
ACM SIGCHI facilitates an environment where its members can invent and develop novel technologies and tools, explore how technology impacts people’s lives, inform public policy, and design new interaction techniques and interfaces. We are an interdisciplinary field comprised of academics, practitioners, and educators, and we welcome a variety of approaches to solve these complex problems. The mission of ACM SIGCHI is to support the professional growth of its members who are interested in how people interact with technologies and how technology changes society.
Who are members of SIGCHI?
Many of our members are involved in the design, implementation, and use of interactive computer-based systems in the broadest sense, ranging from desktop computing, to interactive TV devices. Other members are researchers seeking to understand human-technology interface from many perspectives, including psychology, sociology, anthropology, industrial design, and ergonomics. Still others are educators, training tomorrow’s professionals and providing knowledge of HCI to those who might need it within their own profession. Students also take an active part in SIGCHI and enjoy a number of services designed specifically to meet their needs.
Why should I join SIGCHI?
