Following the tradition of bringing the German HCI community and friends together before going to CHI (Oldenburg 2019, Ulm 2022), the German Pre-CHI 2023 will be hosted in Dresden. The idea of the event is to provide an opportunity for researchers from Germany to present their accepted CHI papers and discuss them in a smaller circle. Additionally, it provides an excellent opportunity for younger researchers to get a taste of the quality of work presented at CHI and network with other peers, as well as senior researchers. Therefore, everyone from students to professors interested in HCI is welcome.

The event is taking place over two days and includes paper talks, poster & demo sessions, coffee breaks, lunch, and lots of informal discussions. We are planning to have several paper sessions, in which young researchers will present their paper talks. After each presentation, we will have a discussion session, which will include the “usual” CHI discussion, but also comments and suggestions on presentation style, slides, etc. in order to optimally prepare you for a presentation at CHI. There will also be an informal session where late-breaking works and demos can be presented and discussed.



The registration deadline is March 2nd, 2023.

In general, participation is free of charge. However, costs for traveling and accommodation are self-paid.
