One-Day Virtual CHI 2020:
Fabrication Event

Keeping our community together

Even though the in-person CHI 2020 conference was cancelled due to the global pandemic, our community is coming together virtually to share their groundbreaking work in HCI and personal fabrication.

Monday, May 18, 9am - 5pm EST

Sign up form

Signing up in advace helps us avoid Zoom bombing by being able
to verify each researcher before they join.



Each full paper will be presented in a live 15-minute talk and 3-minute Q&A.
Each late-breaking work (LBW) will be given 3 minutes.

Slack channel for discussion

Feel free to join the #chi20_virtual channel on the Fab Research workspace.
