Drexel Researchers Participate in ACM CHI International Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems

Swathi Jagannath
PhD in Information Science student Swathi Jagannath will be presenting on "Temporal Rhythms and Patterns of Electronic Documentation in Time-Critical Medical Work” and "Assessing the Feasibility of Speech-Based Activity Recognition in Dynamic Medical Settings” at CHI 2019 in Scotland.

This week, several Drexel University faculty members, students and alumni will present at the ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2019) at the Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow, UK (May 4 to 9).

Their participation reflects the breadth of expertise in the human-computer interaction field at Drexel and the College of Computing & Informatics (CCI), which recently launched a new Master of Science in Information program (with graduate majors in Human-Computer Interaction & User Experience, Library & Information Science, and Digital Content Management), as well as a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Human-Computer Interaction & User Experience.

The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction. CHI – pronounced ‘kai’ – is a place where researchers and practitioners gather from across the world to discuss the latest in interactive technology. This year’s conference theme of “Weaving the Threads of CHI” celebrates people from different disciplines, cultures, sectors, communities, backgrounds – designers, researchers, practitioners – weaving together into one community, with the common purpose of technology that works for people and society. Presentations will be centered on a variety of topics concerning human factors in computing, from mental health to consumer data.

The following Drexel University faculty, students and alumni will participate at CHI 2019:
