We are organizing a Special Interest Group at CHI in Paris: "HCI and
In keeping with this fun theme, we will be jogging around the conference
venue while we discuss interactive technology and sport.
We invite you to bring your running gear with you (and any tech like Nike+,
Runkeeper, your own prototype, ...) and we meet on

Tuesday, 30 Apr, 17:30 in front of room 361.

The program says erroneously 16:00-17:20, but as we do not need the room,
we start after the last paper session, so you can either attend the final
talks of the day or go to your hotel to get changed to meet us at 17:30.
We'll be running for approx. 30min and all jogging levels will be catered

Recent advances in cheap sensor technology has made technology support for
sports and physical exercise
increasingly commonplace, which is evident from the growing popularity of
heart rate monitors and GPS
sports watches. This rise of technology to support sports activities raises
many interaction issues, such as
how to interact with these devices while moving and physically exerting.
This special interest group brings
together industry practitioners and researchers who are interested in
designing and understanding human-computer interaction where the human is
being physically active, engaging in exertion activities. Fitting with the
theme, this special interest group will be “run”
while running: participants will be invited to a jog together during which
we will discuss technology
interaction that is specific to being physically active whilst being
physically active ourselves.
