The entire ASC group is in Boston this week to present 8 papers at the ACM SIGCHI annual conference. The CHI conference is a well-known academic conference that is considered to be the most prestigious platform for presenting Human-Computer Interaction research. Attended by around 2000 researchers, the acceptance rate for papers are generally in the 14-20%, and thus highly competitive.
