CHI 2008 is only just over, but it's already time to think about courses

and workshops for CHI 2009 -- the deadline is July 18, 2008. And don't

forget that Papers and Notes are due in 3 months, so work on those should

be in progress.

  •   July 18, 2008 - Courses & Workshops

  •   September 19, 2008 - Papers & Notes

  •   October 3, 2008 - Case Studies, Doctoral Consortium, Panels,

      Interactivity, Video Showcase (intent to submit)

  •   October 10, 2008 - Video Showcase (video upload)

The full CFP can be found at:  A brief

description of Courses and Workshops can be found below.


CHI 2009 will again offer Courses with durations ranging from one to four

1.5-hour sessions as begun at CHI 2006. Courses allow CHI attendees to

extend their knowledge beyond their current community and their current

areas of expertise. Courses can be aimed at a particular community or can

be cross-community; they can be designed for novices or experts.  We

encourage members of all our CHI communities to submit Courses, and we look

forward to a wide variety of submissions. As examples, Courses could:

  •   Provide professional development for practitioners

  •   Provide advanced instruction in CHI-related tools

  •   Create opportunities to learn new techniques for use in research or


  •   Introduce researchers to emerging areas that will benefit from HCI


  •   Provide an overview of state of the art research or technology areas

  •   Educate CHI communities about other CHI communities

  •   Provide master level classes for experienced CHI attendees

If you are interested in developing a Course, but are unsure of its

suitability for a CHI audience, we would gladly discuss possibilities with


        Garett Dworman, Tec-Ed, Inc.

        Steve Poltrock, Boeing Phantom Works,

        Submission deadline:  18 July 2008 (5:00pm PDT)

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 a dynamic or 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.
