CHI 2015 is just around the corner and with only one month until the early

More critically, the early bird rates for housing end on 6 Feb 2015!

Other than deadlines, however, there are many good reasons to register for
CHI 2015.  This year’s conference brings CHI to Asia for the first time in
its 33-year history, continuing the ACM SIGCHI commitment to making CHI a
truly international event.   The city of Seoul represents one of many
innovation centers in Asia and provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase
groundbreaking content from across the region.

The rich technical program contains breakthroughs across a diversity of HCI
topics. Check the website for a list of accepted Papers and Notes.

In addition to an exciting technical program, we are holding *four* special
symposia devoted to breakthrough insights and innovations from the Chinese,
Japanese and ASEAN research communities.  These symposia are being held on
Saturday and Sunday before the formal conference begins.  With only limited
space, be sure to register for these before they fill up.

This year’s exciting keynote program features *five* speakers who will
bring fresh perspectives to CHI including Dean* Lou Yongqi* of Tongji
University, China, a prominent global thinker on social and sustainable
design; Executive VP* Donghoon Chang*, head of Samsung Electronic’s design
strategy; Senior Research Fellow* David Min*, head of the Software Center
at LG Electronics; Distinguished Scientist *Susan Dumais*, recipient of the
2014 ACM-W Athena Lecturer Award; and *PSY*, the media record breaker and
innovator to discuss creative methods and the impact of social media across
cultural boundaries.

You will also be able to register for a diverse set of courses in which you
can develop new skills in emerging HCI topics.

Be sure to also register for special CHI community events such as the CHI
Women’s breakfast which has limited availability.

When you register, you can also find an assortment of CHI 2015 merchandise
including a long-sleeve T-shirt, collapsible water bottle, and *the *most
precious little Asian tiger sporting an adorable CHI 2015 T-shirt.

Please join us in Seoul, Korea.  Crossings!
