CHCI Participates in the ACM SIGCHI Conference

CHCI Participation in the ACM SIGCHI Conference
Gautam et al. introduced a voice-annotated web application to a group of trafficking survivors in Nepal. The web application tapped into and built upon two elements of the survivors' pre-existing strengths. The authors examined the factors influencing the adaptation and appropriation of the web technology.
Screen Track
ScreenTrack: a desktop application that captures screenshots at regular intervals and lets users retrieve previously used documents,and web pages from the time-lapse video of your computer screen. ScreenTrack leverages users’ episodic memory and provides multimodal cues (visual and metadata) for users torecognize digital resources and retrieve them.

A large group of CHCI faculty and students are participating and publishing in the Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI’20), April 25-30, 2020. Originally scheduled to take place in Honolulu, Hawai’i, the conference is cancelled, due to precautions related to coronavirus. However, papers will be published in the CHI Proceedings and archived in the ACM Digital Library. As the leading annual conference in the field, CHI brings together the latest research and technology from leaders around the world. CHCI members have accepted papers, workshop papers, and late-breaking work. Contributions are listed below.
