Great news! HKUST(GZ) Information Hub has had 22 papers accepted by the prestigious Human-Computer Interaction conference, CHI 2024!

Recently, the acceptance results for the prestigious Human-Computer Interaction conference, ACM CHI 2024 (CCF-A), were announced. The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Guangzhou) Information Hub has achieved a remarkable feat with a total of 22 papers accepted by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), placing them among the top institutions worldwide in terms of publication quantity.

In last year's CHI 2023, Dr. Mingming FAN, an Assistant Professor jointly appointed in Thrust of Computational Media and Arts and Thrust of Internet of Things at the Information Hub, was honored with the Best Paper Honorable Mention Award. This year, his research group continues the previous year's success by having an impressive 16 papers accepted. Additionally, several research groups from the Information Hub, including those led by Assistant Professors Wei ZENG, Assistant Professors Zeyu WANG, Chair Professor Huamin QU, and Professor Kang ZHANG and Chair Professor Pan HUI, have also had multiple papers accepted for CHI 2024.

As one of the three A-class conferences in the field of Human-Computer Interaction and Ubiquitous Computing recognized by the China Computer Federation, papers accepted by CHI have always been highly regarded for their quality. According to publicly available information on the official website of the CHI conference, CHI 2024 received a total of 4,028 paper submissions. Continuing the trend of previous years, the conference maintained a high level of selectivity, with an acceptance rate of approximately 26.4%. This demonstrates the rigorous selection process and the high level of difficulty in having a paper accepted at the conference.

The research findings accepted for this conference focus on the interaction between diverse populations and technology, exploring innovative ways of interaction. The research topics cover various areas, including VR for aging population, human-computer interaction for visually impaired individuals, intelligent creative writing, visualization of theatrical makeup, interactive systems in public environments, and intelligent landscape rendering. As one of the interdisciplinary platforms at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Guangzhou), the Information Hub actively leverages the advantages of cross-disciplinary integration and encourages collaboration among faculty and students from different disciplines and campuses. These achievements signify the Information Hub's continuous dedication and significant breakthroughs in the field of human-computer interaction.
