ACM SIGCHI, the ACM's Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction, brings together people working on the design, evaluation, implementation, and study of interactive computing systems for human use. ACM SIGCHI provides an international, interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of ideas about the field of human-computer interaction (HCI).
You are cordially invited to the June 2006 event of the SIGCHI - Bangalore Chapter
The keynote speaker for the June event is Joseph Konstan, President, ACM SIGCHI and Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota, who will give a talk on “Recommender Systems: User Experience and System Issues”.
We invite HCI and user experience professionals, designers, product managers, technologists, as well as students in the field. ACM SIGCHI also welcomes student volunteers and professionals who would like to assist in the organization of the event.
Bring your business cards along for the speed meeting session. If you haven’t done this before you might want to refer to

Speaker Bio and topic description
Joseph A. Konstan is Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota. His research addresses a variety of human-computer interaction issues, including personalization (particularly through recommender systems), eliciting on-line participation, and designing computer systems to improve public health. He is probably best known for his work in collaborative filtering recommenders (the GroupLens project), and for his work in online HIV prevention. He is co-author of “Word of Mouse: The Marketing Power of Collaborative Filtering”, a book that reviews three dozen good and poor examples of personalization in research and deployed systems.
Dr. Konstan received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1993. He is an ACM Distinguished Lecturer and a former IEEE Distinguished Visitor. He is President of ACM SIGCHI, the 4500-member Special Interest Group on Human-Computer Interaction, and serves on two of the ACM's five governing boards. Dr. Konstan is an active consultant who has worked for more than 15 companies on issues related to human-computer interaction, personalization, and general software issues. He has traveled and lectured extensively, giving over 200 talks in more than 25 countries worldwide.
Over the past decade, recommender systems, employing collaborative filtering technology have evolved from research proofs-of-concept to commonplace components of e-commerce web sites and direct marketing. At the same time, research has moved forward to embrace more sophisticated algorithms and more detailed exploration of the user experience. This talk introduces recommender systems and the algorithms and interfaces used to construct them. It then reviews recent highlights from the 13-year-old GroupLens Research Project, including advances in algorithms, innovations in user interfaces for enhancing user experience, experiments in applying recommender systems to digital libraries, and developments in leveraging the power of on-line communities to construct and maintain artifacts of lasting value.
