Google has an increasing presence at ACM CHI: Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, which is the premiere conference for Human Computer Interaction research. Eight Google papers will appear at the conference. These papers not only touch on our core areas such as Search, Chrome and Android but also demonstrate our growing effort in new areas where HCI is essential, such as new search user interfaces, gesture-based interfaces and cross-device interaction. They showcase our efforts to address user experiences in diverse situations. Googlers are playing active roles in the conference in many other ways too: participating in conference committees, hosting panels, organizing workshops and teaching courses, as well as running demos and 1:1 sessions at Google's booth.

This year's CHI takes place in Vancouver, BC, from May 7th - 12th.
