SIGCHI is the Special Interest Group on Computer–Human Interaction, one of the Association for Computing Machinery's special interest groups. It is the world's leading organization in Human–Computer Interaction (HCI), and essentially created and defined the field.

It hosts the major annual international HCI conference, CHI, with around 2500 attendees, and publishes two of the main international publications on HCI: interactions, and Transactions on CHI (TOCHI).

It was formed in 1982 by renaming and refocussing SIGSOC, the Special Interest Group on Social and Behavioral Computing.

It has two membership publications, the SIGCHI Bulletin and interactions.

Each year it inducts 5 or 6 people into the CHI Academy, honouring them for their significant contribution to the field of human–computer interaction.
