19-20 March 2020
Inspired by the Scottish tradition of meeting researchers from all over Scotland shortly before going to CHI, last year this tradition was brought by Offis (Oldenburg) to Germany to bring the German HCI community and friends closer together. The idea of the German Pre-CHI Event is to provide an opportunity for researchers from Germany to present their accepted CHI papers and disucss them in a smaller circle. Additionally, it provides an excellent opportunity for younger researchers to get a taste of the quality of work presented at CHI and network with other peers, as well as senior researchers. Therefore, everyone from students to professors interested in HCI is welcome.
The event is taking place over two days, which includes paper talks, coffee breaks, and an informal demo session. We are planning to have several paper sessions, in which young researchers will present their paper talks. After each presentation we will have a discussion session, which will include the "usual" CHI discussion, but also comments and suggestions on presentation style, slides, etc. in order to optimally prepare you for CHI ;). There will also be an informal poster session during the coffee breaks, where late-breaking works and demos can be presented as a poster. If you would like to bring a demo, please get in touch with the organizers regarding how much space you need etc.
If you would like to participate as a presenter or attendee, please fill the form to register by clicking the link below (before Feb 18).
Venue & Accommodation
The German Pre-CHI Event 2020 will take place at Schloss Reisensburg (Günzburg). The science center Schloss Reisensburg belongs to Ulm University and is meant to promote international scientific exchange.
Accommodations for the attendees will be provided by the venue. It is possible to share rooms (double rooms). If you're interested in staying in a double room, please get in touch with the organizers. In the unlikely case that the event will be overbooked, presenters will be given priority to stay at the venue. We will then try to organize accommodation places in Günzburg or Ulm for attendees of the event.
If you prefer to organize your own accommodation, please get in touch with the organizers.
The event fees are listed below. We provide single rooms (149€), as well as double rooms. When two of you prefer to stay in a double room (2 separate beds) the fee per person is 129€. The fee for attending the event without accommodation is 89€. When you arrive Wednesday (March 18), 79€ for a stay in a single room + breakfast buffet will be added to the fees.
