We are a non-profit oriented association passionate in creating awareness for HCI and UX in Malaysia
On the 27th of July 2017, Kuala Lumpur ACM SIGCHI Chapter was officially formed. It was initiated in November 2012, as an independent interest group, formerly known as SIGHCI Malaysia. The group was formed, among others, to:
As a community of professionals who are interested in research, education and the practical applications of HCI, we create and shape how people interact with technology and understand how technologies have impacts on people’s lives. We conduct various user research and UX methods to co-create business and government solutions with the participation of stakeholders. We do consultation on usability issues and offer UX strategy to organisations when dealing with interfaces and interaction in the physical and the digital world. In addition, we advise companies and government agencies by discovering useful and impactful co-design innovations. From the research perspective, our members’ research is on numerous topics to explore and design the best ways possible for people to best experience technology.
We are also registered under the ROS with the name Association of Human-Computer Interaction Malaysia on the 16th of October 2017.
Our SIGNATURE Event
National Symposium on Human-Computer Interaction
The goal of FUSION is to map out the HCI work (past and current) by gathering local HCI academicians and practitioners in Malaysia. In the context of our country that is diverse and has rich cultural life (hence: fusion), our aim is to learn from one another’s ongoing research on HCI of various domains, and explore the possibilities of collaborative work. Ultimately, the outcome of the symposium is to set path on how HCI can contribute and make an impact in the landscape of Malaysia’s ICT and digital transformation.
