Message from the Workshops Chair

Workshops are a chance for members of a community with common interests to meet in the context of a focused and interactive discussion. If you are working in an emerging area in HCI, please consider organizing a workshop. They are an opportunity to move a new field forward and build community. CHI workshops might address basic research, applied research, HCI practice, new methodologies, emerging application areas, design innovations, management and organizational issues, or HCI education. Each workshop should generate ideas that will give the HCI community a new, organized way of thinking about the topic or that suggest promising directions for future research. Some workshops have resulted in edited books or special issues of journals; you may consider including this goal in the design of your workshop. Others have created communities that spawned new, more specialized conferences.

What is a CHI Workshop

Workshops will be held on Saturday and Sunday April 4 and 5, 2009. A workshop may be one or two days in length. Workshops are scheduled for six working hours per day, with a mid-morning break, a lunch break, and a mid-afternoon break. Workshops typically have 15 to 20 participants. Focused interaction among participants is important, so participants must have informed positions based on prior experience. And workshops should ideally foster discussion and exchange; they should not be miniature paper presentation sessions.

There are two groups of people involved in a workshop: the organizers and the participants. Workshop organizers submit a workshop proposal to CHI using the PCS submission system. The proposals are reviewed and either accepted or rejected. If a workshop is accepted, the workshop will be publicized by both CHI and the workshop organizers.

Workshop participants attend the workshop. If a person is interested in being a workshop participant, they must submit a position paper to the organizers of that workshop. Position papers are reviewed by the workshop organizers using their own criteria, and the organizers decide on the final list of participants. Workshops are only open to people who have had their position paper accepted by the workshop organizers. Participants must register for both the workshop and the CHI conference itself.

Participating in a Workshop

CHI 2009 workshops are listed below. To participate in a workshop, please look at the webpage of the workshop to learn about submitting a position paper to the workshop.

Accepted workshop participants will be required to register for the workshop (estimated to be $175 for a one day workshop and $250 for a two day workshop) and for at least one day of the CHI conference.

Only those who have had position papers accepted can attend workshops. If you are an accepted workshop participant, you will be provided a registration code.

All workshops start at 9:00 am on the specified day(s), and will end approximately at 6:00 pm.
