New grant on interactive water experiences

We have just received the Minister for Education’s announcement that we have been awarded another ARC (Australian Research Council) Discovery grant, which is very exciting! The grant (Chief Investigators Florian ‘Floyd’ Mueller and Sarah Jane Pell) is one of the top grants in Australia and will support us to investigate interactive experiences in, on and under water to support people in engaging with water activity by highlighting the fun that comes with it while being safe. Here is the official announcement: https://www.arc.gov.au/national-interest-test-statements

“Food is not only fundamental to our existence, its consumption, handling or even the mere sight of its also brings us immense joy. Over the years, technology has played a crucial part in supporting and enriching food-related practices, beginning from how we grow, to how we cook, eat and dispose of food. All these practices have a significant impact not only on individuals but also on the surrounding ecologies and infrastructures, often discussed under the umbrella term of Human-Food Interaction (HFI).

This monograph provides an overview of the existing research in this space and a guide to further its exploration. The authors illustrate the growth in research across four phases of HFI, namely, Growing, Cooking, Eating and Disposal; categorizing the existing works across each of these phases to reveal a rich design space and that highlights the underexplored areas that interaction designers might find intriguing to investigate.

Human-Food Interaction offers a first of its kind overview of research in this fascinating interdisciplinary field and will be of interest to students and researchers working in many areas of Human-Computer Interaction.”

Jogging at CHI’19

Dear CHI attendees,

If you are packing for CHI, here is your chance to bring your running
shoes for another “Jogging at CHI” event!
As in previous years, we are organizing a jog around the conference venue to discuss interactive technology and sports. We invite you to bring your running gear with you (and any jogging apps, your own prototype, …) and we meet on

Tuesday, 7 May, 17:30 after the last paper session of the day (called “Sport and Fitness”) outside room “Carron 1”

and jog from there. So bring your runners, either get changed at your hotel or use the toilets, we’ll leave swiftly for a run around the venue outside. We have done this six times in the past and everyone involved seemed to have enjoyed this “alternative” format of discussing HCI and Sports 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! The goal is to actively shape the future of the field of sports-HCI.

Hope to see you there,
Floyd, Rohit, Joe, Jakob, Stina, Josh, Rakesh, Florian
