Call for Panels Submissions
September 23, 2002

CHI 2003
April 5-10, 2003
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA


As co-chairs for the panels program for CHI 2003, we would like to
invite you to submit proposals for CHI 2003 panels, which will take
place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, April 5-10, 2003. The annual CHI
conference is the leading international forum for the exchange of ideas
and information about computer-human interaction (CHI).

Panels stimulate thought and discussion about ideas and issues of
interest to the human-computer interaction community. They typically
focus on controversial or emerging topics and are designed to explore a
range of different viewpoints. Domain experts conduct an interactive
discussion with the overall goal of helping audience members to broaden
their understanding of the issues and perhaps even to modify their
Panels may take many approaches. Some are analytic; they analyze and
synthesize current practices in the various fields of HCI. Some are
comparative; they compare distinct approaches, techniques, and models to
a particular problem including evaluation, design, and implementation.
They may focus attention on the theme of the conference or special areas
and tracks within the conference (eLearning, Emotion and Mass
communication and interaction). Other panels are historic; they revisit
the past as a means to inform the present. Panels should target a
specific audience, and submissions need to identify this audience (e.g.
newcomers to HCI, practitioners, researchers, etc.). We encourage the
submission of new types of panels and innovation in the format of
presentation, particularly those that stimulate a high degree of
interaction among the panelists and between the panelists and the
audience, and that create a compelling and effective audience
We are also encouraging innovation around the conference theme of
interactive communication. Submitters should consider how to use
communication before the conference to improve the panel's
effectiveness, and how to use interactive communication to extend the
impact of the panel beyond the conference. Innovative ideas about using
interactive communication during the conference and the panel itself to
enhance the audience experience are also encouraged.

The deadline for panel proposals is September 23rd.  It is coming up
