At CHI2012 - we have a SIG Meeting to talk about the idea of replicating HCI findings.

With the novel-research focus of the HCI community, its hard to imagine looking back, validating, and examining the findings of others, yet for many disciplines this is a core - a must. So we never check the validity, the applicability, or the replicability of other peoples research - we take (e.g.) a study of 20 people in one city of one country as truth. Should we?

We'll be talking about how we can facilitate the discussion - and publication - of replication attempts in the CHI community, as we begin to define and propose: a future sub-venue of the CHI conferences - RepliCHI.

We need you to talk about it - as much as we want the people at the top to listen. So we've (so far) booked these people to listen:
 Wendy Mackay (CHI2013 Conference Chair)
 Ed Chi (CHI2012 Technical Program Co-Chair)
 Jeffrey Nichols (TOCHI)
 Dan Olsen (SIGCHI VP of Publications)
 Matt Jones (CHI2014 Conference Co-Chair)

So come and do your bit!

Wednesday 9th May - 9:30am - Room B11

We'll see you there

Max Wilson & Wendy Mackay
RepliCHI Organisers
