Our mission

To connect professionals in HCI in and (particularly) across academia and industry

To support professionals in HCI in academia and industry

To represent HCI professionals in relevant circles (such as government and public perception of HCI)

What’s the story?!

CHI NL has gone through a period of lessened activity, whereby the landscape of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research and practice, and the way it has been self organizing in the Netherlands, changed.

In revitalizing CHI NL, the new board (initiated August 2020) has taken the opportunity to ‘rethink’ the vision and mission for CHI NL (see above) through a series of lovely co-creation sessions that took place in Oct-Nov, 2020.

  • Initially, the Board underwent an inception period of six months
  • During this period, members and outsiders were invited to share their ideas
  • Members can (still) express their interest in being active in CHI NL — get in touch!
