CHI 2012 is almost here! The ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems will be held in Austin, Texas from May 5-10, and is the premier international conference on human-computer interaction. CHI 2012 focuses on the centrality of experience- from the models, theories and practical insights we need to understand and design for user experience to experiencing innovation through hands-on interactivity. Please view the CHI 2012 website for information, important dates, and volunteer opportunities available. http://chi2012.acm.org/
Chapter Spotlight The NUCES KHI ACM Student Chapter in Karachi, Pakistan, held "Developer's Day" on March 15, 2012.
