Visualization Papers at CHI 2018

I attended CHI 2018, an international conference of Human-Computer Interaction, to present BubbleView. There were a lot of visualization papers this year. I collected the papers here for those who want to keep them up to date about visualization research happening at CHI. I categorized the papers by session names. I didn’t add my two cents here. Instead, I marked the papers I found interesting with 👍.
