CHI 2017: Poster Presentation & Conference Experience

I just recently returned from Denver, Colorado from my first ever CHI conference experience. It was a fantastic experience that I can't wait to have again - hopefully next year! Thank you to UMBC's Graduate Student Association and Google's Travel and Conference Grant for funding my trip!

(Our large UMBC group.)

 

During my independent study with Dr. Stacy Branham, I wrote a short paper that was accepted to CHI's Late Breaking Work, so I presented a poster titled Learning the Language: The Importance of Studying Written Directions in Designing Navigational Technologies for the Blind. We discuss the role language plays in communicating directions to blind individuals after conducting a qualitative analysis of emails exchanged between blind users of a mailing list over the course of three years.  

 

​It was also a great opportunity to meet many new people in the field, from all different backgrounds, and talk about their research interested. I met many people with similar interests as myself (which was awesome), as well as numerous people with very different interests I had no experience with (which was also awesome). After going to all of the great paper sessions and talks during the day, there were new fantastic networking opportunities every night.

I wish I had gotten to see more of Colorado - though I took a day trip to Boulder and got to see the mountains a bit closer!

 

Until next time, CHI!
