The First-Ever Science Jam at CHI 2018: A Hands-On Learning, Rapid Researching and Networking Event

TL;DR: There was a Science Jam for the first time at CHI this year. Fitting with the CHI 2018 motto “engage with CHI” the event offered a rapid learning and research prototyping experience. Teams of participants that formed on the spot developed research from concept to early outcome presentations over the course of just two days. Due to a wide array of support materials, an accompanying crash course in Research Methods in HCI, and most importantly thanks to the support of an all-star team of mentors, the participants were enabled to make the Science Jam a great success.

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum 2017

This is a crosspost from: The Heidelberg Laureate Forum I was humbled and extremely excited to be selected to attend the Heidelberg Laureate Forum 2017. The event is organized by the Klaus Tschira Foundation (KTS) in cooperation with the ACM and multiple other partners. In the spirit of the Lindau Nobel Laureates Meetings the event brings together laureates from computer science and mathematics. Since the Nobel prize is not awarded in these disciplines, the event brings ACM A.
