Creative Exchange Goes to CHI

7th May 2013

Last week, members of the Creative Exchange team attended CHI 2013, the leading venue for human–computer interaction research, in Paris.

CHI is the biggest event on Newcastle's calendar, and for several of the PhD students, this was their first conference after joining us in October. This year's event broke records, with over 3,300 attendees came together to present hundreds of papers, demonstrations, posters and videos from researchers around the world.

Nick, Andy and Dave each had full papers presented at the confrence, while Clara, Bettina, Gavin and Tom took part in workshops that preceed the main conference. Tom was also highly successful in the Student Games Competition, where his entry, Squidge, took one of three prizes and earned a mention in the closing plenary.

Now that the conference is over for another year, we'll be forging ahead with new projects — many of which we hope will be presented at CHI 2014 in Toronto.
