  3. 3. Introduction What is CHI? The ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) series of academic conferences is generally considered the most prestigious in the field of hu- man-computer interaction. It is hosted by ACM SIGCHI, the Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction. CHI has been held annually since 1982 and attracts thousands of international attendees. The conference consists of multiple tracks, including: • Case studies • Posters, notes, and academic papers on a variety of topics (ubiquitous computing, visualization, usability and user experience design, etc.) • Workshops hosted by domain experts • Invited panels on relevant topics The number of accepted full papers is slowly increasing and reached 157 accepted papers with an acceptance rate of 22 percent in 2008 CHI Highlights from CHI 2009 © 2009 frog design. confidential & proprietary August 12, 2009 3

  15. 15. Jan Chipchase Summary Findings - Waking up with the city (research team up at 4AM) - Reading signs and obituaries reveal cultural values - Researching in the context of poverty provides extreme use cases - Having local interpreters for the culture facilitates understanding Process - CHI is evolving their “Design Track” - CHI is adding more invited, inspirational speakers CHI Highlights from CHI 2009 © 2009 frog design. confidential & proprietary August 12, 2009 15

  33. 33. Engagement by Design Summary Findings - Tracking in itself is a useful part of lifestyle change (diabetes) - Rewards need to be aligned with growth of the system (gaming, social networks) - Playability is more important than usability in gaming - Trans-Theoretical Model for Treatment common reference point (cancer) - Archetype model received well (self-selecting states, modes of downshifting) - Relationship model for system usage over time (all) Process - 12 authors with point of view on Engagement by Design - 10 minute presentations each - Breakout sessions - Present back to the group - Discussing publishing an issue of Interactions Magazine CHI Highlights from CHI 2009 © 2009 frog design. confidential & proprietary August 12, 2009 33

  42. 42. Student Design Competition Summary Process - frog is involving design more in the CHI community - The student competition is a way to integrate practice with academics (frog, Smart Design on the panel) - This is a transparent example of the process - Started with 125 papers, selected 10 for a poster session, then selected 4 for the presentation with the top three selected for first, second, third place.

  43. 43. 4. ONE ARMED BANDIT TALK 43

  49. 49. One-Armed Bandit Summary Finding - Archetypes well received as an alternative to Personas. Process - Example of how a design project at frog can be published - Lots questioning - what is “successful” design? - Awards as recognition (e.g., IDSA Gold Award) doesn’t translate well to CHI - As consultants, we face the challenge of “knowing” how our designs progress unless we do a follow-up project, win an award, - To publish “archetypes” as a framework, we would probably need to have 3-5 projects as supporting evidence.

  50. 50. 5. BEAUTY DILEMMA PANEL 50

  63. 63. Beauty Panel Summary Findings - In this context, “beauty” is confused between styling and design - Beauty is culturally defined - Beauty is difficult to quantify - Empirical study can’t describe successful design - A study based on hypothetical trade-offs doesn’t really answer the right questions Process - Main paper was distributed to 3 panelists - Each panelist was asked to critique the paper in a 10 min presentation - Provided a good discussion, and contextualized the findings CHI Highlights from CHI 2009 © 2009 frog design. confidential & proprietary August 12, 2009 63

  76. 76. Theory of Aesthetics Summary Findings - Defining CHI’s approach to aesthetics has a long way to go (as compared to film theory, etc) - Cultivating expert judgement is perhaps the best approach - Doing lots of critiques is the best way to develop these skills - “Implications for Design” as part of the submission process should clearly delineate if it is relevant to this design or the practice of Design Process - Discussion evolved out of the alt.CHI forum - Material was iterated on over several conferences - Has helped influence the requirement for future CHI Highlights from CHI 2009 © 2009 frog design. confidential & proprietary August 12, 2009 76
  77. 77. SUMMARY 77
  78. 78. Summary Impressions - Change is slow, but the Design Track and connection to CHI are evolving - Framing our work in the context of conferences help validate and contextualize our work - Submitting Design work will be easier and clearer in upcoming years - Conferences such as SXSW or IxDA are less academic alternatives Next year - 2010’s theme: encouraging people to take a walk. - CHI will be in Atlanta, April 10th - Requirements are changing - Have Expert, Invited, and Juried talks - The Design Track is advancing CHI Highlights from CHI 2009 © 2009 frog design. confidential & proprietary August 12, 2009 78

  80. 80. Interactive Photo Viewers: Another group from Japan showed off sandwich- size, turtle-shaped “CaraClocks”-- devices that sync when they touch to show related photos. For example, a father, mother, and child could connect their CaraClocks, turn a knob, and see pictures of one another at the same age. The researchers behind the project, from Keio University, say that this can evoke what they call “collective memory.” They also say that CaraClocks can generate various visual parallels between users by CHI Highlights from CHI 2009 © 2009 frog design. confidential & proprietary August 12, 2009 81
