About ToRCHIToronto Region's special interest group on Computer-Human Interaction
(ToRCHI) is a local chapter of the ACM's special interest group on
Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI). We are psychologists, designers,
human factors engineers, computer scientists and computer users who
meet to discuss and exchange ideas about human computer interaction and
user interface design.
ToRCHI schedules meetings
to discuss and exchange ideas about human computer interaction and user
interface design. Presenters use state-of-the-art tools and
technologies to create and apply their own research findings.
Seminars are typically at 7:00pm in the second or third week of every
month at various locations. The format of usually consists of
refreshment time; presentations by invited guest speakers or discussion
groups, followed by question periods, and open discussions.
Workshops are run on weekdays between 9:00AM and 5:00PM and cover a
wide range of topics. Registration fee from workshops help subsidize
the monthly meetings and pay for web hosting services.
Books and magazines are available for members to borrow for as long as no one else requests the same item.
