The focus of traditional Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research has largely been on relatively homogenized groups of users, mostly in technology-rich settings. As computing technologies become more ubiquitous throughout the world, including across relatively under-served communities and diverse populations, there is a growing need to better understand these communities and their interactions with computing technologies.
HCIxB – HCI Across Borders – intends to build bridges to connect researchers working towards this goal in countries around the world, with a special focus on the so-called global south.
We are currently planning the next Symposium that will take place at CHI 2019 in Glasgow. More information will be available soon!
