It's not too late to participate in CHI, the ACM's major conference on Human-Computer Interaction!
Submissions are still open for the Work-in-Progress, alt.chi, Special Interest Group, and Student Competition venues.

The submission deadline for all of these venues is:  January 7th (5:00 pm PST)

The Work-in-Progress Posters offer a great venue to show exciting new work that is in an early stage and can benefit from discussion with colleagues. We encourage practitioners and researchers to submit their work-in-progress to present their valuable ideas, get feedback on their work and stimulate discussions and collaborations among colleagues. Accepted submissions will be available to the CHI community as a 6 page paper in the electronic Conference Extended Abstracts Proceedings and as a poster presentation.
More information is available at:

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 inevitably means that many valuable contributions are never presented at CHI - and some might not even be submitted. With alt.chi 2009, 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 2009 is your chance to present that paper you always wanted to write but you knew would never get through the conventional review process.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide an opportunity to attract a group of conference attendees who share a common interest and engage them in face-to-face discussions. Organizing a SIG is a great way to start or extend your involvement in the CHI conference program - several SIGs have evolved into other successful venues at subsequent conferences. In addition to interesting and innovative SIG topics, we also encourage interesting and innovative approaches to organizing and conducting the SIG itself.

Student Research Competition
The Student Research Competition (SRC) is a forum for undergraduates and graduate students to share their research results, exchange ideas, and improve their communication skills while competing for prizes at CHI 2009. Sponsored by Microsoft Research, the CHI SRC competition is a branch of the ACM Student Research Competition<> which hosts similar competitions at other ACM conferences in other areas of computer science. Students accepted to participate in the Student Research Competition at CHI 2009 are entitled to a travel grant to help cover travel expenses, up to a maximum of US $500. Students must be members of ACM to qualify for travel funding and awards. Students who wish to participate in the Student Research Competition must submit to the Work-In-Progress venue.

Student Design Competition
This is the sixth year of the CHI Student Design Competition. The competition has grown each year with increased international representation, and always draws a large audience at CHI - it has become a major recruiting opportunity for identifying talented students. In 2008 there were over 40 international submissions, and we trust 2009 will illustrate an even larger adoption.

We look forward to seeing you at CHI!
