HCII Demo Day 2017
On April 13, 2017 the Human-Computer Interaction Institute will host it's first Demo Day. The HCII labs will be open and running demonstrations, talks and posters for our friends, fellow researchers and community members to enjoy hands-on experiences with our work. This is an open event and one that we warmly encourage all to attend.
Since our founding in 1994, the Human-Computer Interaction Institute has remained a leader in building innovative interactions between people and technology. The HCII Demo Day is an opportunity to share research from our faculty and students with our friends, fellow researchers and community members.
Demonstrations will begin at 2:00 PM and run throughout the day, culminating in a student poster session and evening reception. During this time, visitors will have a chance to view our lab spaces across campus.
Register for the 2017 HCII Demo Day. There is no registration fee for this event.
Carnegie Mellon University's visitor page offers our guests a useful guide to joining us in Pittsburgh. You can access this information on www.cmu.edu/visit.
Demos and Labs
