For over 20 years, the academic human-computer interaction (HCI) and computer supported collaborative work (CSCW) communities have conducted research on user-facing hardware, sofware, and social media platforms dominated by a few key firms. Even as the contributions made by these scholars have shaped the development of these technologies, so too does industry funding play a key role in convening and supporting our community. This panel brings together HCI researchers for a reflective conversation on industry funding support for HCI.
