Welcome to the University of Chicago "HCI Club", a space where we connect faculty and students that are interested in the broad area of Human Computer Interaction. Our meetings happen regularly every two weeks (for now on Zoom) and cover a wide-range of student-chosen topics such as: "what makes a good project/thesis" or "how to advance careers in HCI" and also more specific topics, such as paper reading groups or presentations.
Please subscribe to the HCI club mailing list!
The HCI club is a broader initiative by students and faculty of UChicago and does not belong to the Human Computer Integration Lab. So, no matter where you are coming from on campus, if you are interested in HCI, join us!
Please subscribe to the our mailing list to get the Zoom password. Our zoom room is here. We also recommend checking this website prior to each meeting for any last minute announcement!
