The 2012 Computer Human Interaction Mentoring (CHIMe) Workshop, co-sponsored by the Computing Research Association’s Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research, the Coalition to Diversify Computing, and the National Science Foundation is a discipline-specific workshop for mentoring underrepresented students in HCI. The workshop provides a unique opportunity for underrepresented researchers (women, minorities, students with disabilities) in HCI to interact with leaders in their field, network, learn about the latest trends in HCI, and present their work to the HCI community for constructive feedback.
We invite graduate students who work in the field of HCI to submit applications for scholarships to attend the workshop. The scholarship will cover travel, lodging and food for the days of the CHIMe Workshop, and student registration fees to attend the CHI 2012 conference after the workshop.
Application for Participation: To apply for participation and scholarship, you must: 1) fill out an application online, 2) write a short statement, and 3) have your research advisor send us a letter of support for your participation in the workshop.
1) The application form is available at the CHIMe workshop website (see below). The information that you must provide includes: name, university where you are currently enrolled, your email, your mailing address, the current year in your studies, list of your recent publications, milestones completed (e.g. qualifier, proposal, etc.), name of your advisor, and research interest (area within HCI). In addition, you must provide some personal demographics, such as gender, citizenship, and ethnicity.
2) In addition, you must write a statement answering the following question: How can you contribute to and benefit from this workshop? Please make sure you address both parts of the question. The limit is 1500 words. You can paste your statement in plain text in the online form.
