CHI Formatting Instructions

CHI uses two different formats for most submissions: HCI Archive & Extended Abstract. (For Courses see the instructions at http://www.sheridanprinting.com/sigchi/chi4.htm.)

HCI Archive Format

These templates should be used for submitting CHI Papers and CHI Notes. Please see the Extended Abstract Format for other submission types.



ACM Classification Keywords: The category H.5 applies to information interfaces and presentation. The full list of categories for classifying work with a computing component can be found at www.acm.org/class/1998/

Make submissions via the PCS submission system

Blind Reviewing and Paper Anonymity

The CHI 2009 Papers and Notes review process will continue to use blind reviewing. As in previous years, we will use a relaxed model that does not attempt to conceal all traces of identity from the body of the paper. Authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper, as noted in the submission instructions. Further suppression of identity in the body of the paper is left to the authors' discretion. We do expect that authors leave citations to their previous work unanonymized, so that reviewers can ensure that all previous research has been taken into account by the authors.

Contribution and Benefits Statement

If your paper is accepted, CHI authors are expected to develop a 30-word contribution and benefits (C&B) statement for their Papers and Notes. The statement describes the contribution made by the paper to HCI and the benefit that readers can gain from it. Unlike previous years, this statement is not required for initial submissions; you will be asked to provide it only if your paper is accepted.

Extended Abstract Format
