How to Participate

Though we won’t be able to gather in person this year, last year’s online event led to a lot of great discussion, so we’re extending the SIG beyond our live event once again. All parts of the SIG, synchronous or asynchronous, are subject to the overall SIG Code of Conduct.

Part One: Ideas! (Now – May 8)

First, we need to figure out what to talk about. In an adapted unconference style, we are using Padlet to gather and initially discuss possibilities. We encourage you to add your own ideas or upvote others, and to visit and participate multiple times before the Padlet closes. Visit & contribute to the idea Padlet.

Part Two: Asynchronous Discussion (Ongoing)

While most of the SIG discussion usually happens at the live conference event, this has in some ways always been a limiting factor in who can participate. This year, we’re starting with an asynchronous discussion period so more people with more varied schedules can participate. Chats are lightly moderated, and the Code of Conduct applies, but past that, it’s all open for debate! To join, email for an invite, and then introduce yourself in the intro thread and start, well, figuring out the future of Queer HCI!

Part Three: Live SIG Event (May 10)

The main SIG event will be held as part of the CHI 2021 program on Monday, May 10 @ 9 pm EDT / 6 pm PDT / 3 am CEST, and can be accessed through DelegateConnect.
