The Google Researchers are just some of the people who will be in Montreal this week at CHI 2006. This is the premier international conference for human-computer interaction. Since most of us are now interacting with computers this is a subject we all should be interested in. This Conference at the Palais des Congr?s (Convention Center) will allow all segments of the CHI community – design, education, engineering, management, research, and usability – to interact, inform and inspire each other, in the words of the official slogan.
There will be some ground-breaking work being discussed here. One of the Google entries deals with the fastest growing sector of the Internet. It’s entitled A Large Scale Study of Wireless Search Behavior: Google Mobile Search. In a session on Search and Navigation: Mobiles and Audio, Google willl present the first large-scale study of search behavior for mobile users, highlighting some shortcomings of wireless search interfaces. It should be fascinating.
