STATEMENT

The work we do within the SIGCHI community is critical to how ordinary people will control computational power rather than be controlled by it. Computing power continues to cause social and economic displacements. It is our community that will invent the solutions that will empower people rather than discourage them.

Our success is based on inviting and encouraging many diverse voices, pursuing and supporting intellectual excellence, a broad portfolio of conferences and strong, sound finances. These successes do not come without challenges. Diversity is our strength but we must work hard to ensure that the conversations are broad, vigorous and inclusive without becoming bitter, partisan and divisive. Our historical success within diversity must continue.

The SIGCHI community generates a vast pool of ideas. Conference attendees indicate that finding what is useful is difficult. We need to help our members find what they personally need. We need to develop better tools for our members to use the product of our collective labors.

In 2001, terror threats choked world travel and sent SIGCHI’s finances sharply downward. We have recovered from that and are now financially strong. Our challenge is that we need to better reinvest those funds into member benefits.

STATEMENT

In this election, I draw attention to the importance of diversity in our constituency. I am a designer within HCI, and my career is devoted to extending the boundaries of HCI and to increasing its members and approaches. In the past, I have helped to grow the Design Subcommittee at CHI (now two committees) and the Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) conference, viewed as the leading HRI conference in the world.

To continue these efforts, Dan Olsen and I will further grow and enrich human-computer interaction. I will increase support for people to attend and access our conferences and publications, particularly those from underrepresented and distant groups where travel can be costly and prohibitive. I will ensure that there are new services in place that make volunteering within the organization within everyone’s reach. I will also help to find new ways to bring the diverse aspects of our community together.

HCI is more important than ever. Our discipline is responsible for designing the interface between people and technology and understanding how life will change as a result. I hope to bring energy and new ideas to this group to make our community even stronger, and to continue to uphold these responsibilities.

STATEMENT

For the past three years as SIGCHI Vice-President, I have championed strategic initiatives such as the modernization of our conference processes and infrastructure, membership development programs, and better membership communication. For the next three years as President, I want to prioritize making the SIGCHI body of work and events available for all. This means ensuring HCI researchers and practitioners from around the world can partake in our conferences and gain access to our publications, taking definitive steps to making our family of conferences and PC meetings accessible, and promote and disseminate SIGCHI member work. Second, I want to enhance the HCI community’s ability to sustainably grow by addressing reviewing and volunteering through policy and technology as well as well-defined mentorship. Finally, I fully support greater transparency of the SIGCHI EC and conference leadership. We have already taken steps in this regard, but we can do better. SIGCHI is run by community volunteers and it should never be a mystery how decisions are made or how one can become more involved. Our ability to sustainably grow and have greater influence relies on an organization that works together and takes advantage of all of our talents and passion.

Technical Program Chair, CHI Conference, 2015 – 2017;
Program Chair, CSCW Community, 2012 – 2013.

STATEMENT

I have strong belief in the ability of HCI research and practice to make a positive difference in the world. In my last three years of membership on the SIGCHI Executive Committee, I have attempted to support the HCI community by clarifying publication policies, creating more options for publishing high-quality work, and focusing on rigorous HCI work across our conferences. For the next three years, I want to continue the work of the EC to focus on accessibility and diversity, but also have two specific initiatives I want to lead. First, our decision making is often hindered by lack of data coming back from the conferences. I want to revise our data gathering methods to prioritize data-driven decision making, and to investigate options for open data. Second, I want to study ways to conserve our volunteer resources. Our community has wonderfully devoted volunteers, but the growth of paper submissions, conferences, and other opportunities is straining our volunteer pool. I want to devise practical programs that will respect and preserve our volunteer efforts.

STATEMENT

I am honored to be nominated to serve as SIGCHI’s Vice-President of Finance. I have contributed to the CHI community in various capacities over the last twenty years, yet this is my first opportunity to serve on the Executive Committee. While I have had few official capacities related to finance, I have chaired three conferences. In doing so, my philosophy as general chair is that the best way to understand and troubleshoot the running of a conference is to master its finances, essentially “owning” every line of the conference’s balance sheet. All three conferences were successful and met their budgets.

SIGCHI finance requires a broader perspective than that of a single conference, however. Fortunately, the efforts of myself and many other similarly diligent general chairs have ensured that SIGCHI finances are in good shape. Thus, we can afford to invest in the organization’s future in a strategic way. The SIGCHI Development Fund is a prime example of an ongoing effort to reinvest money to foster greater diversity across a variety of subfields. As Vice-President of Finance, I would seek to amplify these existing efforts and find new ways to capitalize on our long-term success.

I will be a LBW co-chair in CHI 2019. Beyond SIGCHI, I am active in the HCI community in India, and a member of the IFIP TC13, where I served as Treasurer for three years. I have been the general co-chair of INTERACT 2017 and of several India HCI conferences.

I am honored to be nominated to serve as Vice-President for Finance. Ever since my first CHI in 2004, I was impressed with the focus of the SIGCHI community on inclusion. But only after I became closely associated with the EC did I see the efforts and care the members of the community take to give SIGCHI a wide reach. Thanks to the thriving SIGCHI community, our finances are healthy. This, I believe, is the opportunity to take SIGCHI further, especially to reach out and grow the community in developing countries, where HCI folks have major roles to play and milestones to achieve. If elected, I am committed to supporting SIGCHI in its outreach.

STATEMENT

It was a pleasure to be appointed as SIGCHI Vice-President At Large in August 2016. Since then, it has been my goal to serve the SIGCHI community by increasing public awareness of HCI. This is important to our community and field: it helps us attract new members and draw people into a career in HCI, and it increases our impact through wider dissemination of our work. I have worked to facilitate awareness of HCI by finding ways to help our members share their work (I organised communication and media skills sessions for CHI 2018, which will be repeated at CHI 2019), by running public outreach events
(I’m currently planning one for CHI 2019), and by exploring what it might mean for SIGCHI to have a PR agency working with them, to publicize work presented at SIGCHI-sponsored conferences. It would be my aim, if elected again, to continue and expand this effort. I would continue to support our members in developing outreach skills and to offer platforms via which they can disseminate their work, and I would focus in particular on how we might do this with a global outlook.

Elected to the CHI Academy, 2016.

STATEMENT

As a rapidly growing global community, SIGCHI faces many challenges of diversity, inclusiveness, accessibility, environmental sustainability and transparency. As a Vice-President At Large, I will work towards solutions to these challenges.

Travel is problematic for many SIGCHI members due to mobility, visa, and sustainability concerns. To insure inclusiveness, accessibility and sustainability, I will continue exploring new ways for members to participate in conferences without traveling, including telepresence robots and live streaming.

Our membership also spans many different language communities and our field benefits when there is smooth exchange of ideas among these communities. Since CHI 2015, I've been exploring ways to make our conferences more accessible to a multilingual membership, for example by providing attendees with machine translation tools.

Many of our members seek guidance on how to get involved in SIGCHI volunteering. For the past three years, I have been serving as Adjunct Chair for Career Development to help realize our vision of becoming a more transparent organization. I've also been developing new ways we can mentor junior researchers, for example through the CHI Career Development Symposium.

As a Vice-President At Large, I will focus on addressing these challenges and broadening our community.

STATEMENT

HCI Across Borders (formerly HCI4D): As our profession grows, we need continued focus on helping new HCI/UX communities to develop and thrive. We also need to learn from them in order to extend the profession in culturally-appropriate ways.

Education: Growing demand for UX in industry without clear accepted educational standards leads to confusion and poor performance, and ultimately degrades UX in the eyes of management. We must identify what skills and knowledge are critical and address how to teach these effectively.

Addressing gaps between academics and practitioners: We need to connect academic outputs with industry needs and make it easier for practitioners to adopt critical research. This will make SIGCHI and the wider profession stronger. Making the value of research more evident to industry could also increase funding for research.

Collaboration with practitioner groups: To address the gap, we must also work together with practitioner organizations, such as UXPA, etc. To address the fact that not all practitioners see SIGCHI as relevant to them, we should link research and practice more explicitly. We are stronger when we work together as equals, recognizing each other’s value and strengths.

Inclusion: Extending outreach to everyone will help the profession grow & flourish.

STATEMENT

Since 1989, I have contributed and witnessed the growth of HCI especially UX practice in industry in China from its inception, experiencing twists and turns. Understanding the hardships, my passion has been to help HCI communities in the developing world to mature.

In the past years, I have been working on these endeavors in realizing SIGCHI’s vision of an inclusive global community:

  • As SIGCHI Adjunct Chair for Developing Worlds 2009-2015, I coordinated SIGCHI’s efforts in Asia, Latin America and Africa to connect with local communities and help them to mature. These efforts led many local communities to form.
  • As chair of SIGCHI Gary Marsden Student Development Fund 2015-2018, I led SIGCHI’s initiative to help the students from developing countries to attend HCI events.
  • As a member of SIGCHI Asia Development Committee 2015-2018, I worked on connecting SIGCHI with Asian communities.

If elected Vice-President At Large, based on SIGCHI’s cumulated efforts and what I’ve learned from past experiences, I would like to further help SIGCHI to mature HCI in the vast developing world by identifying the concrete needs from the local communities and coordinating SIGCHI’s resources to meet their needs.
