The Video Previews are a new feature for the CHI Conference series, replacing the long-running CHI Madness daily plenary session to save time in the over-crowded schedule. But really, the Video Previews is more than just a reason to sleep in a little longer: the goal is to make it easier to understand what the presentations are about, before, during, and after the conference.
The previews were intended to serve multiple purposes:
- To provide a preview of what will be presented at the conference, so that attendees could plan their schedule
- To be played on-site on large displays throughout the conference venue to give people an idea of what’s coming up next
- To be distributed to attendees as part of the electronic proceedings on the USB stick, and on the iPhone and Android apps.
