Friendly reminder:

Going to CHI?

If you are packing for CHI, here is your chance to bring your running shoes
for another "Jogging at CHI" event!
As in previous years, we are again organizing a jog around the conference
to 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, 10 May, 17:50 in front of room 301

(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 shortly after for a
run around the venue outside.
We have done this four times in the past and everyone involved seemed to
have enjoyed this "alternative" format of talking HCI and sports 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! The goal is to actively shape the future of the field
of sports-HCI.

Unfortunately, this year our request to make it a SIG and therefore
official part of the program was rejected
due to it "creating an insurance liability for ACM". Therefore we point out
that this is not an official CHI event and hope that you enjoy it
regardless of ACM endorsement.

Hope to see you there,
Floyd, Rohit, Joe, Jakob & Stina
