Abstract

Participants who attend CHI automatically become a member of the Special Interest Group in Human-Computer Interaction (SIGCHI). Being a member of SIGCHI entitles its members to a variety of benefits, such as student grants, conference discounts, research magazines, etc. However, how do SIGCHI members experience their membership? What kind of benefits do members want and need? In a recent survey conducted by the SIGCHI Communications and Membership team, we found that current members seek the opportunity to communicate (present) their research and that they want to learn from each other. This SIG is a great opportunity to discuss with the SIGCHI Communications and Membership team on how to serve its members better. It is open to everyone, from CHI 2018 newcomers to long-standing members of SIGCHI.
