Development Consortium

Sunday, 25 April 2004
Room O1-2

Co-Chairs: Austin Henderson, Pitney Bowes, USA; Gerrit van der Veer, Vrije Universiteit, Netherlands

Former and current political situations as well as monetary issues still prevent full development of HCI in several parts of the world, e.g., the eastern part of Europe and parts of the Middle East and of Asia. HCI activities there have been rather isolated from each other and from the rest of the world. CHI2004, taking place in Vienna, the very heart of Europe and close to the Middle East, focuses on the connection between the "traditional“ SIGCHI community and HCI related groups and individuals in this part of the world. The Development Consortium will implement this by supporting development and connection, building on existing nuclei of HCI related people and projects in industry and academia, including individual efforts as well as established local groups.

Participants have been invited on the basis of position papers submitted to the Consortium’s organizer. This session is open to anyone attending CHI2004.
