OVERVIEW AND GOALS: A NEW RELATIONSHIP AND A NEW EVENT AT CHI2002

CHI2002 and AIGA Experience Design would like to invite you to attend
our first co-sponsored event! The FORUM is dedicated to exploring how
the knowledge and skills from each community contribute to current thinking
and innovations in the world of human-computer interaction and experience
design. The FORUM is an independent two-day event and will take place
immediately preceding the CHI2002 technical program and does not required
attendance at other CHI2002 events.

--------------------------------------------------------
PROGRAM

The FORUM will explore the intersections of the SIGCHI and AIGA design
communities and offer plenty of opportunities to interact with
fellow design practitioners of all kinds.
