Jogging at CHI 2020

Dear CHI attendees,

Like every year, if you are packing for CHI, here is your chance to bring your running shoes for another “Jogging at CHI” event!

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 prototypes etc.) and we meet after the last paper session on 29th April 2020.

The location will be updated closer to the event. You can register yourself using the following google form. We have been doing this over email every year, however, a form will formalise the process and help maintain a database of people interested in Jogging at CHI:

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 seven 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.

Weather Gods ⛈
It generally is good during April and should be super pleasant and fun!
Hope to see you there,
Rakesh, Floyd, Josh, Rohit, Joe, Jakob, Stina, Yash, Florian, Nathan, Jo, Perttu, Mike, Tao
