CFP for Courses at IDC 2015
ACM SIGCHI Interaction Design and Children 2015 Conference
Boston, Massachusetts USA
June 21-24, 2015 <>

Courses are an opportunity to advance participants knowledge in a specific domain area.  Beyond learning information, participants forge potential collaborations with fellow participants and course instructors with regard to a specific interest topic within the IDC community.  Courses may be half-day or full day in length, and typically have 10 to 15 participants. 
Submission Due Date (EXTENDED): March 1
Notification: March 16
List of Position Papers and Participants: April 20th
Tutorials Date: June 21st, Tufts University, Boston, MA
Submission Format: 
Coversheet with course title, names & contact information for instructors, proposed course length
A proposal in CHI extended abstracts format (up to 4 pages) describing the scope and topics of the course, rough schedule, expected outcomes, and bios of organizers
Brief abstract to appear in the program
300-word call for participation that you will use to publicize your course
Submission directions: email pdf file with the information above to the workshop coordinators: Jerry Alan Fails <mailto:[log in to unmask]> ([log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>) and Tilde Bekker <mailto:[log in to unmask]> ([log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>)
Proposals will be reviewed by an expert jury based on the workshop topic's potential for generating community interest and useful results. The chairs reserve the right to suggest potential changes to the proposal (e.g., changing the course length) or to cancel a course due to insufficient participation.

If accepted, the course instructors will be responsible for the following:
Implementing the publicity plan to recruit potential participants
Preparing a course description in extended abstract format
Developing a final agenda of course activities
Making sure at least 10 attendants (including organizers) are registered by the early registration deadline, otherwise we reserve the right to cancel the course
Please note that attendants must register for both the course and the IDC conference itself. The course registration fee will be waived for one course instructor only.
