Usability of Programming Languages
Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting during the CHI'2016 conference
Tuesday, May 10, 4:30-5:50pm PST in Room 112.

We are organizing a special-interest group meeting during the ACM CHI
2016 conference in San Jose, CA on the topic of the usability of
programming languages, and we hope you will attend!

To attend you must be registered for the CHI'2016 conference, and
early registration ends March 14:

Programming languages form the interface between programmers (the
users) and the computation that they desire the computer to
execute. Although studies exist for some aspects of programming
language design (such as conditionals), other aspects have received
little or no human factors evaluations. Designers thus have little
they can rely on if they want to make new languages highly usable, and
users cannot easily chose a language based on usability criteria. This
SIG will bring together researchers and practitioners interested in
increasing the depth and breadth of studies on the usability of
programming languages, and ultimately in improving the usability of
future languages.
