CHI’16: Bring your jogging shoes for our Sports-HCI session!

jogging_at_chiWe are again organizing a Special Interest Group (SIG) at CHI’16 in San Jose: “Jogging at CHI”.
Like in previous years, we will be jogging around the conference venue while we discuss interactive technology and sports. We invite you to bring your running gear with you (and any jogging apps, sportswatches, your own prototype, …) and we meet on
Wednesday, 11 May, 16:30 in front of room 112
(where you can leave your bags) and jog from there. So bring your runners, either get changed at your hotel during the break before or use the toilets next to the room, we’ll leave the conference venue at approx. 16:45 for a run around the venue outside.
We have done this three times in the past and everyone involved seemed to have enjoyed this “alternative” format of a SIG while getting some exercise at CHI.
We’ll be running for approx. 30min and we have plans to accommodate those who want to jog slower/faster/further/not that long etc. All jogging levels will be catered for!
HCI is increasingly paying attention to sports, and more and more CHI attendees are aiming to maintain being physically active while attending CHI. In response, we offer a SIG on the topic of sports-HCI and conduct it in a sportive way: we will go out of the conference venue and jog around San Jose while discussing the role of HCI in relation to sports. The goal is to actively shape the future of the field of sports-HCI.
