Hi CHI attendees,

We are once again organizing a Special Interest Group at CHI in Toronto:
"JOGGING WITH TECHNOLOGY".

In keeping with this fun theme, we will be jogging at the park next to 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+,
Endomondo, your own prototype, etc. and we meet on

Tuesday, 29 Apr, 16:00 in room 715A.
http://chi2014.acm.org/program/#s-sig107

So bring your runners, either get changed at your hotel during the break
before or use the toilets next to the room, we'll leave the conference
venue at approx. 16:15 for the park outside.

We'll be running for approx. 30min and all jogging levels will be catered
for!

Abstract:
There has been a significant increase of interactive
technologies to support sports activities. Examples are
heart rate monitors for cyclists, jogging apps on mobile
phones and GPS sports watches for extreme sports.
Despite consumer popularity, there is little knowledge
about how they should be designed in order to support
the exertion activity. Based on CHI’13’s success of
conducting a special interest group outdoors, we
propose jogging with technology to discuss sports support
interactive systems and investigate what future
opportunities and challenges exist.
