Symposium 2018


The Third ACM SIGCHI Asian Symposium (RIEC International Symposium on Human-Computer Interaction)

Date: Wednessday, December 12-13, 2018
Venue: Research Institute of Electrical Communication Main bldg. Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan

To assure quality of life of people in a society in which the information level has been highly developed, the importance of human-technology and human-computer interaction further increases. The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction, and provides a place where researchers and practitioners gather from across the world to discuss the latest topics. It has been annually held mainly in North America and Europe since 1982, and the CHI 2021 will be held in Asia followed by a series of CHI in Asia every five years. From such circumstances, this symposium invites active young leaders from multiple countries in Asia-Pacific to discuss ideas that can lead to innovations and to inspire us all. It would serve for the development of connections among us and regional/local societies through promoting collaboration among Asian-Pacific HCI researchers and practitioners.


情報技術に囲まれた高度情報社会に生きる人々のクオリティオブライフを保証していく上で,人と情報システムの関係を様々な角度から検討することはますます重要になってきています.人と情報システムの相互作用について,情報科学,認知科学,心理学,デザイン学等,多岐に渡る分野の研究者や技術者,学生等が世界中から集まり議論する学際的な場として,また,この分野で最大かつ最も権威がある国際会議として,ACM SIGCHI が主催する国際会議CHIがあります.この会議は1982年から毎年,北米と欧州を中心に開催されてきましたが,2021年にはアジアで6年ぶりに開催されることが決まっています.さらに今後5年毎にアジアで開催される案も示されています.そこで本シンポジウムでは,このように盛り上がりつつある本分野のアジア太平洋地域の今後の着実な発展のため,各国をベースに国際的に活躍されている若手研究者の代表の皆さんにお集まりいただき,お話をいただきます.相互理解を深め,人的ネットワークを構築することに加えて,今後の国境を越えた共同研究などについても相談したいと思います.そして,この分野の世界的な発展に少しでも貢献したいと思います.
