CHI 2012 - It's the Experience!
May 5-10, 2012 - Austin, Texas

The ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is the 
premier international conference on human-computer interaction. The 
experience of CHI 2012 is centered in vibrant Austin, Texas, the Live 
Music Capital of the World.


9 January 2012 is the deadline for Interactivity, alt.chi, 
Works-in-Progress, SIG Meetings, Student Competitions, Videos and 
workshop submissions.

Visit for a full overview.

* Workshops *
33 workshops will be organized at CHI 2012. Workshops are a chance for 
members of a community with common interests to meet in the context of a 
focused and interactive discussion. Please consider attending a 
workshop, and take part in this opportunity to move a new field forward 
and build community.

* Interactivity *
Interactivity is your chance to fully engage CHI attendees at a personal 
level by letting them see, touch, squeeze, hear or even smell your 
interactive visions for the future.

To make interactivity even bigger and better, there are two ways to 
submit for Interactivity this year:
- Interactivity Research is the high-visibility, high-impact forum of 
the Technical Program which allows you to present your hands-on 
demonstration in two sessions.
- Interactivity Explorations is about cultural applications and 
explorations of future technologies. If your work asks questions and 
inspires reflection on the role of technology in people’s lives, their 
dreams and imaginations we want to hear from you.

New & better this year: Get more attention, simplified submission!

* alt.chi *
alt.chi 2012 proudly continues the tradition of bringing substantive, 
thought-provoking, original work to CHI through an alternative approach. 
We invite the submission of bold, compelling, critical, and innovative 
works that challenge or re-imagine human computer interaction research 
and design.

* Works-in-Progress *
A Work-in-Progress is a concise report of recent findings or other types 
of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant to the CHI community. 
Appropriate submissions should make some contribution to the body of HCI 
knowledge, whether realized or promised. A significant benefit of a 
Work-in-Progress derives from the discussion between the author and 
conference attendees that will be fostered by the face-to-face, poster 
presentation of the work. More info:

* SIG Meetings *
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 contribution types 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. Feel 
free to contact us ([log in to unmask]) before submitting a proposal 
to discuss your ideas and questions.

* Student Competitions *
This year there are three student competitions:
- Student Design Competition (SDC)
- Student Research Competition (SRC)
- Student Game Competition (SGC)

* Videos *
The videos track is a forum for human-computer interaction that leaps 
off the page: vision videos, reflective pieces, humor, novel interfaces, 
studies, and anything else that is a good match for the moving image and 
relevant to HCI. Videos are due 9 Jan 2012.
