UMSI researchers recognized with 3 Best Paper awards at 2019 CHI Conference

University of Michigan School of Information faculty and PhD students have earned three Best Paper and five Honorable Mention designations at the 2019 ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems. 

Best Paper awards go to the top one percent of accepted papers at ACM CHI, the premiere international conference on Human-Computer Interaction. This year’s conference takes place May 4-9 in Glasgow, Scotland. The theme is "Weaving the Threads of CHI." 

Best Paper winners:
