The Work-in-Progress Posters offer a great venue to show exciting new  
work that is in an early stage and can benefit from discussion with  
colleagues. We encourage practitioners and researchers to submit  
their work-in-progress to present their valuable ideas, get feedback  
on their work and stimulate discussions and collaborations among  
colleagues. Accepted submissions will be available to the CHI  
community as a 6 page paper in the electronic Conference Extended  
Abstracts Proceedings and as a poster presentation.

This submission category aims to attract attention from a broad range  
of disciplines covering a spectrum of topics and methodologies. We  
encourage submissions from all of CHI's communities: design,  
education, engineering, management, research, and usability. Topics  
related to the conference main theme are especially encouraged:

The Work-in-Progress venue is not an archival publication that  
constrains future submissions. Your Work-in-Progress Poster is not  
considered to be a prior publication of the work and may be reused  
for later publications if appropriate.

Work-in-Progress submissions consist of a camera ready 6 page  
unanonymized paper in the Extended Abstracts format. The final  
submitted PDF must be smaller than 4Mb in size. This document must be  
submitted as via the PCS submission system by 8 Jan 2008 (5:00PM PST).

The six-page submission should include:
* a concise description of the idea
* if appropriate, the completed analytical exploration or  
experimental assessment of your work
* potential implications of the work to the field of HCI
* recommendations for further investigation and incorporation into  

Each submission will be reviewed based on the originality of the  
work, the quality of the written presentation and its contribution to  
the field of HCI. The submission's suitability for presentation as a  
poster will be considered as well.

Work-in-Progress Posters will be presented at the Conference  
Reception. We expect that most conference attendees will visit the  
posters and interact with presenters during this time. Accepted Work- 
in-Progress submissions will be distributed in the electronic CHI  
Extended Abstracts. They will be placed in the ACM Digital Library,  
where they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and  
practitioners worldwide.

We Need Reviewers Too!
We also invite you to register as a reviewer for the Work-In-Progress  
submissions. Your feedback as an expert is of great value to ensure  
the quality of the work presented at this track. It provides you with  
an exciting opportunity to learn about new, state-of-the-art and  
thought-provoking work that is still in its formative stages and  
allows you to help your fellow HCI colleagues to push this work  
forward. Please visit to learn  
more about reviewing.

We strongly encourage all of you to participate. More information is  
available at the conference website: 
works_in_progress.html. Do not hesitate to contact us (chi2008- 
[log in to unmask]) if you have any further questions.  Hope to see you in
