First - I love Florence.

Second - has anyone noticed in the list of people on the organizing
committee that the 2 conference chairs are Microsoft?

How do people feel about how heavily the conference organizing committee is
mostly (over 90%) weighted towards academics, not practitioners....

I know there is always this interesting tension between thinkers and
workers, between theory and practice. Perhaps as a practitioner, I just wish
more praxis was represented on the committee.

Thoughts?

Am I being to sensitive? Have people who have attended CHI in the past felt
this way as well?

~~ will

HI Will,

Your first two points are a bit contradictory: Microsoft is not academia.
But I agree your perception of CHI is the more common one; however, also as
the co-Chair of the design track I would say your thinking of the conference
is a bit dated. (Look at CHI2007 web site and also CHI2008 and you will see
a significant dedication to practitioner as well as academic content). In
the past few years, there has been an extra-ordinary growth in
practitioner-oriented content in the conference along side the academic
research. Indeed, sending this Call for Participation/Volunteer to this
group is part of the ongoing efforts to include more practitioner content
and more practitioner reviewers.

CHI also is not a design conference, but rather an HCI conference with a
design/practioner component. In this way it is a unique conference that
mixes both research and design. For more practitioner oriented conferences
there are now many to choose from (DUX, IA Summit, UPA and of course now
IxDA's own conference this February). However as a place to meet and
exchange ideas with people all over the HCI map, CHI remains the place to be
(mind you being in Florence helps).
