*Only one week left until the July 16th deadline for Course and Community
proposals for CHI 2011!*

*Course Proposals: *

Courses allow CHI attendees to extend their knowledge beyond their current
community and their current areas of expertise. Participants will include
members of all CHI communities, and may be designed for novices to a
specific field or experts. CHI 2011 will offer Courses with durations
ranging from one to four 80-minute sessions. Courses should cover the wide
variety of all our CHI communities (http:// link communities). Submissions
of courses that focus on new and emerging areas, methods and technologies as
well as courses describing the foundations of HCI are encouraged. If you are
interested in developing a course, but are unsure of its suitability for a
CHI audience, the Courses Chairs would gladly discuss possibilities with

*Community Proposals: *

CHI 2011 is taking further steps to integrate the core communities into the
program and has initiated a process to identify new communities to foster.
Communities are a chance for SIGCHI members with a common area of interest
to gather and advance their area through the CHI conference. If your
emerging community has grown enough to where you can organize a significant
body of work, and volunteers to ensure its quality, consider proposing a
community within the conference. Communities are about moving an area of the
field forward. CHI communities might address new areas of research and
practice, new methodologies, emerging application areas, design innovations,
management and organizational issues, HCI education, engineering and
modeling, systems development, theory or other areas. Some will represent
strategic areas for SIGCHI or the conference, and others will represent
areas of interest within the larger SIGCHI community. Their influence may be
felt through existing venues and may innovate in how the content is treated
within the program. Communities emerging through the CHI conference may even
spawn new, more specialized conferences in the future.
