TUX 2017 Research Poster Day

February 7th , 2017
MaRS Discovery District, Bottom Level Auditorium

Over the past year, the TUX community has interacted with researchers and practitioners through TUX Member Presentations and Sanders Series Lectures. We are pleased to announce that TUX will hold another event, the TUX Research Poster Day 2017. This new event brings together researchers and practitioners within the TUX community to share valuable ideas and foster discussion of research in the field of Human Computer Interaction.

On February 7 Tux will be hosting a Sanders Series Invited Lecture in the MaRS auditorium. Prior to the talk, posters will be displayed to prompt conversation among attendees.

We would like to encourage you to share your research with the TUX community. We welcome submission of posters presenting previously published work, work-in progress, or other HCI projects of interest. We also encourage posters of recently accepted CHI 2017 papers, or other soon to be published works.

The special event focuses on promoting socialization opportunities within the TUX community as well as displaying and discussing research.
Poster proposals can be submitted per the instructions below. Selection criteria will be based on available space and with a goal of achieving a spectrum of topics and presenter affiliations. If space permits, all posters will be accepted.
