CHI PLAY 2015 - Call for Workshop Proposals
CHI PLAY, now in its second year and taking place from October 5-7 in
London, is a new international and interdisciplinary conference by ACM
SIGCHI for researchers and professionals across all areas of play,
games, and human-computer interaction (HCI). We call this
multidisciplinary area “player-computer interaction”.
CHI PLAY Workshops offer a great opportunity to develop new
collaborations and establish new and exciting research areas, allowing
for focused discussions or activities with experts that study a common
theme. Workshops may address any games-related topic. They should
generate ideas and create momentum towards the study of problems in our
field. We are especially interested in workshops that bridge the
researcher and practitioner communities. Prior workshops included
gaze-based interaction gameplay, a game jam for exertion games, and a
games user research workshop. Details about last year’s workshops can be
found here: http://chiplay.org/chiplay2014/workshops/.
If you are interested in bringing together a group of researchers that
share your passion for the type of research you perform, consider the
organization of a workshop. In prior conferences, such as CHI, workshops
have resulted in special journal issues, books, and research projects.
Others created communities and evolved into their own conferences. We
are happy to invite you to participate at CHI PLAY through the
submission of a workshop proposal.

--- SUBMISSIONS ---
We are soliciting workshop proposals from organizers. Workshops will run
on Sunday 4th October, and can be either in full-day or half-day format.
The workshop proposal should include the following details:
- An abstract, in SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format
(http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform) and no longer than four
pages, that briefly covers the topic of the workshop, its novelty, and
its expected impact. The abstract should loosely cover the planned
activities and schedule. The final version of this will go into the ACM
- A cover sheet including:
- Workshop Title
- Names and contact information of organizers
- Whether the workshop is full or half day
- Anticipated number of participants
- A draft call for papers, which will resemble the one that will be
widely published to advertise the workshop
Workshop organizers should submit a workshop submission package by June
26 2015, 5:00pm PMT to CHIPLAY, which will be reviewed by a panel of
domain and logistics experts. If a workshop is accepted, the workshop
organizers will publicize the workshop to solicit potential participants
to submit position papers. Workshop organizers solicit participants for
their workshop through a Workshop Participants Call for Participation
and CHIPLAY places a link to the workshop's website on the CHIPLAY
Workshops Page. Packages should be submitted to the CHI PLAY submission
site, at https://precisionconference.com/~sigchi.
Once a workshop is accepted to the conference, interested participants
should submit a position paper to the organizers of the workshop.
Position papers are statements of interest and/or expertise in the
workshop topic, in any format or media as defined by the workshop
organizers. The workshop organizers will review position papers using
their own criteria, and will decide on the final list of participants.
Workshop papers will not be published by CHIPLAY as part of the
conference’s proceedings. However, as mentioned above, the organizers
may publish their own proceedings, organize a special issue in a
journal, or publish an edited book that will include the workshop’s papers.
A workshop description will be published as part of the conference
proceedings and in the ACM digital library. The description should be
part of the submission package, and should be in the form of a 6-page
ACM SIGCHI extended abstract.
Workshops are intended to create a lively discussion and/or activities
that will include both the participants and the organizers. As this
discussion is important, the participants should have positions
developed and submitted to the organizers. The organizers will be
responsible for reviewing and accepting the participants’ positions.
However, workshops should not just be about paper presentation sessions.
They should include a lively discussion, and focus on building a
community based on communal knowledge creation. They should also not be
classes that will be taught by the organizers; these should be submitted
to the Tutorials and Courses track.
