CHI 2009 Call For Papers

The Human-Computer Interaction Archive

Archival Papers and Notes document work that makes a lasting and significant contribution to our knowledge and understanding of human-computer interaction. The CHI 2009 Organizers have combined the review and submission processes for Papers and Notes, so they are no longer separate submission venues.

Submit by September 19, 2008, 5pm PDT

  • Papers and Notes (archival format, 10 pages maximum for papers, 4 pages maximum for Notes)
  • IMPORTANT CHANGE! The CHI 2009 Papers and Notes program committee will consist of subcommittees that each focus on a subset of topics in human-computer interaction. As an author, you decide which subcommittee reviews your paper. Choose the subcommittee that your believe offers the appropriate audience to review your research. You also will specify a contribution type that guides how the paper should be evaluated by reviewers. Authors should carefully assess the subcommittees and other changes described in the Papers and Notes Call for Participation. Ask any clarifying questions well ahead of the deadline.

Contemporary Trends

Contemporary Trends provoke, intrigue, and inspire the CHI audience. These submissions record the history of HCI practice and innovation outside of the scope of traditional archival papers.
