Courses at CHI PLAY should allow participants to learn new hands-on 
knowledge about player-game interaction, development, and evaluation. 
They are great opportunities for industry pros and games researchers to 
teach their knowledge to an interested audience and allow 
interdisciplinary knowledge development between practitioners and 
researchers. If you work or research in the games domain and are eager 
to teach a course at CHI PLAY, we look forward to your submission.

For example, a course could:
- Provide a substantial overview of state of the art research or a 
technology area
     - Introduce practitioners to emerging areas, new technologies, or 
methods within games research
     - Create opportunities to learn new techniques for use in research 
or practice
     - Provide master-level classes for experienced CHI PLAY attendees
     - Provide advanced instruction in tools, technologies, or methods


Course proposals should be 4 to 6 pages in SIGCHI Extended Abstract 
format (, are not 
anonymized, and should include the following information:

- Title of the Course (please make this short but descriptive)
- Names and affiliations of the instructors
- Duration: courses can be half or full day
- Features: a bullet list of the educational goals and/or major elements 
of your course
- Audience: state the disciplines and/or organizational roles of 
attendees and maximum number of participants
- Prerequisites: describe any required background
- Presentation: list the various presentation forms used, for example, 
lecture, demonstration, exercises, videos, group discussions, and/or

The proposals will be evaluated by members of the program committee on 
the basis of the quality of the proposal, their benefits to participants 
and their fit with the scope of CHIPLAY. Factors to be considered 
include relevance, timeliness and audience appeal; use of appropriate 
presentation methods and exercises; past experience and qualifications 
of the instructors.
