Post-CHI Summer Schools Program on Human-Computer Interaction

🇩🇪 Herzlich willkommen! 🇩🇪

Hello all!

Given that CHI 2023 will be in lovely Hamburg, we are organizing a Summer School program that takes place right after CHI. This is a great opportunity for attendees and students of the conference to stay in Europe and enjoy learning from experts in HCI across different topics and research labs.

The summer schools are distributed across HCI research labs within Germany and Europe. These research labs are all fairly accessible by train and public transport from Hamburg. Each summer school will be free to attend for participants, where participants only need to cover accommodation and travel costs.
