The SIGCHI project Listening to Arabs, Africans and Spanish Speaking Latin Americans or LAASSLA is a SIGCHI effort to reach out to HCI people in places where HCI is still in its infancy. Growing out of the HCI Across Borders (HCIxB) activities that SIGCHI has sponsored and/or been involved in, this project consists of several regional meetings led by SIGCHI EC members to discuss the future of HCI and SIGCHI in Arab, Sub-Saharan African, and Latin American regions. Funds will be provided for delegates from eligible countries [see list at for a list) to attend.

We are delighted to announce that our first meeting will be in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Alexandria, Egypt to listen to delegates from Arab countries. Meeting time is envisaged to take place on the 15th and 16th of January, 2018. Our local host is the City for Scientific Research and Technological Applications (SRTA-City).  

HCI researchers, educators, post-graduate students, practitioners, consultants, and all others doing HCI/UX activities from Arab countries are invited to fill out the online application before November 5, 2017 <>  Applications must be completed in English.  The meetings will also be conducted in English.

Accepted applicants will be notified by November 20, 2017.    

Please note:  Participants will be reimbursed by ACM after the meeting.
