Panels are intended to provide a forum for participants to discuss controversial or emerging topics related to the conference theme:  "Citizens Online: Considerations for today and the future". Panels should target a specific audience and be debate-oriented rather than consisting of a series of short presentations. Each panel will last approximately 90 minutes and should be comprised of 3 to 4 panel participants.

Proposals for panels should include a topic title, an abstract (including a short statement about the relevance of the panel and the aims of the panel), a list of panel participants (including their contact details, affiliation and a short biography), industry relevance, and a preliminary list of questions that will be posed to the panellists.

Panels submission date: 1st August 2005

Demonstrations of original applications, technologies and approaches to user interface design are encouraged. Peer reviewed demonstrations show early implementations of novel, interesting, and important interface systems and design approaches. They can also serve to showcase commercial products not previously described in the research literature. The following aspects of the submission will be considered in the selection process:
- Contribution to the field of HCI
- Originality of the concept
- Quality of the presentation

Demonstrations submission date: 1st August 2005 Notification date: 19th September 2005 Camera-ready papers due: 26th September 2005

- New or improved techniques and methodologies
- Techniques for measuring performance and ROI
- Issues and developments in implementing research methods
  such as - surveys, workshops and on-site observations
- Translating user requirements into design
- Issues and challenges in particular industries or contexts
  such as online applications or mobile technologies
- Refining and realising business strategy and working with

WORKSHOPS provide a valuable opportunity for small communities of people with diverse perspectives to engage in vibrant discussions about a topic of common interest. Workshops can focus on research or applied topics. Each workshop should generate ideas that give the HCI community a new, organized way of thinking about the topic and that suggests promising directions for future research. 
Workshops will take place on Nov 21st and 22nd and are one day or half day events at which participants explore particular research topics. A workshop should have specific objectives, raise stimulating issues, and aim to report its activity as a conference poster or subsequent publication.

Workshop proposals submission date: 3rd June 2005 Notification date: 25th July 2005 Camera-ready papers due: 12 August 2005

TUTORIALS are one day or half-day events designed to offer a small number of participants the opportunity to learn about specific HCI related concepts, methods and techniques. They are one of the best means of conveying introductory and advanced instruction on specific topics to an interested audience. 
Tutorials are a significant attraction to attendants and provide exposure in depth and breadth to HCI topics. We welcome both research and industry tutorial submissions. It is important that you specify the audience for your tutorial, as reviewers will be drawn from the expertise you indicate is relevant.

Tutorial proposals submission date: 3rd June 2005 Notification date: 25th July 2005 Camera-ready papers due: 12 August 2005
