Adobe at CHI 2022

May 3, 2022

In the Dually Noted paper, the authors present a tool for authoring and viewing annotations for physical documents using smartphone augmented reality.

CHI 2022 is being held as a hybrid-onsite conference this year from April 30 to May 5, 2022. The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is widely considered to be the top international conference for Human-Computer Interaction research work. CHI – pronounced ‘kai’ – is a place where a diverse group of researchers and practitioners gather to discuss the latest in interactive technology.  

This year, CHI is being held in a fully hybrid format for the first time. Participants can attend the conference in-person in New Orleans, while others will attend through an online conference platform and Discord. 

Adobe is co-authoring a variety of work at CHI this year, including: 

  • Six CHI Papers 
  • Four Late-Breaking Work papers 
  • One Case Study paper 
  • One CHI Journal paper

CHI states that Late-Breaking Works provide the CHI community with an opportunity to present new and exciting contributions that showcase innovative technologies, extend prior research conversations, detail short self-contained studies, or provide provocations for new work and ideas to emerge. Case Studies are compelling stories about Human-Computer Interaction practices based on real-world experiences that will be instructive and of interest to other members of the community. 

The CHI Journals track invites selected authors of papers accepted to the ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction (ToCHI) to present their work at the CHI conference.

A number of Adobe researchers also served as Associate Chairs (AC) of CHI and external reviewers to help ensure high-quality reviews for the thousands of paper submissions that CHI received: 

  • Zoya Bylinskii – Visualization subcommittee AC 
  • Joy Kim – Blending Interaction: Engineering Interactive Systems & Tools subcommittee AC 
  • Cuong Nguyen – Blending Interaction: Engineering Interactive Systems & Tools subcommittee AC 
  • Hijung Valentina Shin – Blending Interaction: Engineering Interactive Systems & Tools subcommittee AC 
  • Christine Dierk – received a Special Recognition for Outstanding Review  

Many of the accepted papers are the outcome of research internships or other collaborations with university students and faculty. For those interested, please check out the Adobe Research Careers website to learn more about internships and full-time career opportunities
