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 you.

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.
