Not Your Typical Conference
SOUPS distinguishes itself from other
conferences by both providing a high quality technical program and
by bringing together an interdisciplinary group of
attendees in a format conducive to informal discussion and
networking. SOUPS offers reasonable registration fees, which
include meals catered by local restaurants featuring a variety of
cuisines. Past attendees have raved about "the amazing group of
people who were here to talk with" and the "awesome food."
One past attendee wrote: "Overall, this is the best conference I've attended. I may be ruined
forever going to SIGCHI and other larger conferences."
