Pre-conference Program

NordiCHI’14 features two days of workshops, tutorials, and doctoral consortium before the main conference. Workshops and doctoral consortium are by invitation only, while tutorials are open for everyone with a separate fee.

Update 20.10.: Please note that all NordiCHI 2014 pre-conference activities (workshops, tutorials, and doctoral consortium) take place right after the end of Daylight Saving Time. So remember to adjust your clock one hour backwards and to sleep one hour more!
