About the Series
From May, 2011 to May, 2011
PhillyCHI is the Philadelphia region’s chapter of the ACM SIGCHI, an interdisciplinary academic and professional group interested in human-computer interaction, user experience, usability, and other related disciplines. We are professionals, academicians, and students who are passionate about understanding the design, development, and use of computer-based systems. We come from various backgrounds and work in fields ranging from interface design, to programming, copywriting and user research. We hold monthly meetings to discuss current topics in HCI in Philadelphia and Western suburbs. Meetings are usually in the form of a presentation, though we also hold panels, workshops, and an annual design slam competition. We also host monthly social events to allow folks an opportunity to network and socialize. All PhillyCHI meetings and events are free and open to the public.
