Dear CHI attendees,

This is a friendly reminder, if you are packing for CHI, please bring your
running shoes for our "Jogging at CHI" session: we found a beautiful path
very near from the conference venue, along a creek through Little Italy,
where you can even see squirrels! Go jogging like the locals do. The
weather forecast is also perfect!

Here is the original email:
We are again organizing a Special Interest Group (SIG) at CHI'16 in San
Jose: "Jogging at CHI".

Like in previous years, we will be jogging around the conference venue
while we discuss interactive technology and sports. We invite you to bring
your running gear with you (and any jogging apps, sportswatches, your own
prototype, ...) and we meet on

Wednesday, 11 May, 16:30 in front of room 112

(where you can leave your bags) and jog from there. 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. 16:45 for a
run around the venue outside.
We have done this three times in the past and everyone involved seemed to
have enjoyed this "alternative" format of a SIG while getting some exercise
at CHI.

We'll be running for approx. 30min and we have plans to accommodate those
who want to jog slower/faster/further/not that long etc. All jogging levels
will be catered for!

HCI is increasingly paying attention to sports, and more and more CHI
attendees are aiming to maintain being physically active while attending
CHI. In response, we offer a SIG on the topic of sports-HCI and conduct it
in a sportive way: we will go out of the conference venue and jog around
San Jose while discussing the role of HCI in relation to sports. The goal
is to actively shape the future of the field of sports-HCI.

Looking forward to this,
Floyd, Rohit, Joe, Jakob & Stina
