23 members of the Human-Computer Interaction Lab will present their research at prestigious HCI conference.
Twenty-three faculty, staff, and students from UMD’s Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL) will present their research at CHI 2022 being held from April 30-May 5, 2022 in New Orleans, LA. CHI annually brings together researchers and practitioners from all over the world and from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and positionalities, who have as an overarching goal to make the world a better place with interactive digital technologies.
At this year’s conference, structured as a hybrid-onsite conference, nine papers and one late-breaking work, two workshops, three panels, and one Special Interest Group (SIG) will feature HCIL faculty and staff. An honorable mention, which is only given to the top 2-5% of all papers accepted, was awarded to HCIL faculty, Dr. John Dickerson, and his student, Samuel Dooley, who co-authored “Field Evidence of the Effects of Pro-sociality and Transparency on COVID-19 App Attractiveness.” The paper presents the first field study of COVID-19 contact tracing apps with a randomized, control trial of 14 different advertisements for CovidDefense, Louisiana’s COVID-19 exposure-notification app.
Additional topics to be covered in these sessions hosted by members of the HCIL will include research on visual analytics and mixed reality, technologies for aging, and grand challenges for personal informatics and AI. Dr. Jessica Vitak, Director of the HCIL, will also be featured at a SIG discussion on research ethics in HCI.
“We are proud of the research contributions lab members have made at CHI conferences, and this year is no different, with HCIL members on 10 papers that will be presented at the conference, as well as workshops, panels, and a SIG. 2022 will also be special because it’s the first in-person CHI since 2019, and for many students, this will be the first CHI they attend,” Vitak remarked.
The HCIL at UMD launched a year after the first CHI conference in 1982, and in the many years since, CHI has remained one of the most important venues for HCIL students and faculty to share their work. The CHI conference series started with the Human Factors in Computer Systems conference in Gaithersburg, Maryland, US in 1982, organized by Bill Curtis and Ben Shneiderman, who is the founder of the HCIL at UMD.
