In addition to the submission areas you have come to expect, there are
CHI notes, work-in-progress and a whole set of community submission
categories, aimed at the designers, usability professionals,
engineers, managers and educators who attend CHI.

If you are a practitioner who attends CHI, but wishes there were more
sessions that speak to your interests and your professional needs, the
CHI conference has made significant changes to address your needs. We

researchers. But this will only happen if members of those communities
submit to the new community submission areas. Please make this the
most exciting CHI ever. Submit panels, experience reports,
