alt.chi 2007

CHI 2007, ACM conference on Computer/Human Interaction
28 April - 3 May, 2007, San Jose, California, USA

The CHI conference is the leading venue to present innovations in  
human computer interaction. The year's best work from researchers and  
practitioners is selected in a strictly competitive process. But this  
competition also inveitably means that many valuable contributions  
are never presented at CHI - and some might not even be submitted.

With alt.chi 2007, we want to open up for unusual, challenging and  
thought-provoking work that might not otherwise be seen at the  
conference. alt-chi is a place to experiment with how CHI submissions  
are presented, submitted, reviewed and selected. alt.chi is CHI's  
breathing hole, the space for change, where new ideas can be tried  
out and experienced.

Alt.chi invites controversial ideas, novel prototypes, failed but  
valuable user studies, bold experiments, and anything else that can  
give a fresh perspective on CHI. We invite submissions that explore  
technical or practical limitations in technologies or methodologies;  
that introduce promising, although currently non-viable techniques;  
that critique the current state of the field; and that explore topics  
outside of current discussion. In particular, we invite work that  
would otherwise not have been presented at CHI 2007 - whether because  
it has been rejected from other venues (e.g. Papers), or because it  
is too different to be submitted in the first place!

The alt.chi 2007 program will be selected through a non-anonymous  
process, where all submissions and reviews are completely open. There  
will be an open forum were anyone can register to submit and review,  
and all submitters will be required to take part in the selection  
process. All reviews and submissions will be available to anyone who  
registers. We want to encourage discussion and debate on what makes a  
good alt.chi (or regular CHI) submission, what makes a good review,  
and, ultimately, what makes for a fruitful conference experience.
