2016 looks set to be a busy year for conference organization with 2 super exciting announcements to make.
(1) I’m serving as paper co-chair for ACM Mobile HCI, a conference very near and dear to my heart. My fellow papers chairs are Jonna Hakkila from University of Lapland (Finland), Antonio Kruger from DFKI (Germany) and Marcos Serrano from University of Toulouse (France). Please check out the Mobile HCI 2016 website and get thinking about your paper submissions! Deadlines for paper submissions are 12th February 2016.
(2) I’m also serving as industry track co-chair for ACM RecSys 2016 alongside. My fellow chairs are Paul Lamere from Spotify and Hrishi Aradhye from Google. Our aim is to devise a super interesting industry line up so if (a) you work in industry and (b) your work involves “recommending things to people” why not consider submitting a proposal to the track?
