* Papers and Notes (archival format, 10 pages maximum for papers, 4  
   maximum for Notes)
* IMPORTANT CHANGE! The CHI 2009 Papers and Notes program committee will
   consist of subcommittees that each focus on a subset of topics in  
   computer interaction. As an author, you decide which subcommittee  
   your paper. Choose the subcommittee that your believe offers the  
   audience to review your research. You also will specify a  
contribution type
   that guides how the paper should be evaluated by reviewers. Authors  
   carefully assess the subcommittees and other changes described in  
the Papers
   and Notes Call for Participation. Ask any clarifying questions well  
ahead of
   the deadline.
