  • ISL Dialog Tuesday, April 282:30-3:30 p.m. Conf Room: 1500 Speaker:  Ed Chi  Title:  CHI2009 Trip report: An overview of a 2410-person conference  Abstract: 
PARC had a decent showing at the annual CHI2009 conference in Boston, where 2410 people showed up to hear about the latest research in Human- Computer Interaction.  Some highlights include: ASC presented 8 papers at the conference, participated in 2 workshops with papers, and one of our students won 2nd place in the Student Research Competition. Ed Chi chaired the Video Showcase, where an estimated 600-800 showed up to watch 25 four-minute movies in a SIGGRAPH electronic theater- like setting (with popcorn and Oscar-style award presentation). - Paper tracks included significant works on areas such as (1) social computing and social networking site characterization and tool development; (2) ubicomp, mobile and surface computing; (3) Computer Mediated Communication and CSCW research; (4) debate on HCI research methodology and metrics; (5) search tools and desktop interactions.

    49. 49. Closing Plenary -- Kees Overbeeke <ul><li>Always someone outside the community, often with a design bent. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Dreaming of the Impossible” focused on a European perspective on design and technology. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Design is about people. It is about our lives, our hopes and dreams, our loneliness and joy, our sense of beauty and justice, about the social and the good. It is about being in the world. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a primacy of action. In accordance with some theories of knowledge, meaning cannot be detached from action. Meaning is in (inter)action. There is a primacy of embodiment. </li></ul></ul>2009-05-06 CHI2009 Trip Report
    50. 50. Kees Overbeeke <ul><ul><li>A design theory consequently must be a theory of action and the embodiment in the first place, and of meaning in the second, and not the other way around. Reflection on action is the source of knowledge. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The methods used must be rooted in design practice, in the socio-cultural environment, invigorated by experimental and technological methods from other disciplines. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intuition and common sense should be high on the agenda. They should be exploited to the maximum. </li></ul></ul>2009-05-06 CHI2009 Trip Report
