I attended this year's TEI (Tangible, Embedded, and Embodied Interaction) conference in Sydney, Australia. It was my first time at a Human-Computer Interaction conference and I really enjoyed listening to the paper presentation and chatting with other researchers in the field.
I was mainly at TEI to take part in the Graduate Student Consortium, which I would really recommend to any research student. It's great to be able to share and discuss your research with a broad range of researchers. It's easy to be too embedded in your own research and it is good to get new perspectives on your work.
The students at the GSC were also given the opportunity to put a poster up during the Demo/Poster session. Hopefully this design isn't too awful. First try at academic poster. You can also find my short paper here: https://doi.org/10.1145/3374920.3374959
