The message below is forwarded from Marta Rey-Babarro, the CHI 2007
Communications Chair. I encourage you to visit the Advance Program
referenced below and take a look at some of the speakers and sessions we
have lined up - there's some great content related to Interaction Design.




Friday March 2nd is the last day for CHI 2007 early registration -
that leaves just a few days for you to register for CHI before the
conference fees increase. Take a look at the Advance Program
<http://chi2007.org/attend/program/ap.php> where Paper, Note,
Interactivity, and Experience Report presentations are all listed along with
Courses, SIGs, Plenaries, and Interactive Sessions. Then Register at CHI
2007 RegOnline <http://www.regonline.com/Checkin.asp?EventId=109545> for
the conference and sign up for your 5 free course units.

After you register for the conference take advantage of the
discounted hotel rates <https://resweb.passkey.com/go/CHI2007> around the
San Jose McEnery Convention Center. Hurry - the rooms are going fast!

If you have flexible travel plans, consider staying an extra night
and signing up for a day of tours on Friday May 4th. You will have a chance
to spend the day visiting HCI facilities in Silicon Valley-based companies
and universities and meet the people who work there. Companies have grouped
together to offer tour days, so as an attendee you will sign up to visit
typically four organizations in a day. Organizations planning to participate
include TiVo, Google, Frog Design, Microsoft, SAP, Yahoo!, Oracle, Nokia,
IBM, Intuit, Ricoh, and Stanford and Berkeley Universities. More
information will be available about the tour options and how to sign up in a
couple of weeks. Check out the CHI2007 <http://chi2007.org/> website after
March 8th.

In order to celebrate CHI's 25th anniversary we are holding a poster
and writing contest <http://chi2007.org/attend/chibuzzcomp.php> and the
prize is a free registration! And on CHI Buzz <http://chibuzz.ist.psu.edu/>
, an online community established to support the CHI conference community,
you can share your stories and memories of CHI, share your pictures from
past CHIs, join discussions in the CHI 2007 Forum, or vote in our CHI 2007

Join us in Reaching Beyond!
