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. In addition to a diversity in users, more and more disciplines are finding themselves embraced by the HCI community. How can we strengthen these connections? And for years, HCI researchers and practitioners have been working at a distance from one another. How can we bring them any closer?
The HCI Across Borders (HCIxB) community, still strong after its first meeting at CHI 2016 in San Jose, continues its dream to build bridges across all these differences within HCI. Join us!
