Members of the CHI community can now volunteer to serve as ACs (associate chairs) for CHI 2017 through PCS (

Volunteering looks more or less like making a submission to CHI. Go to PCS, log in to your account, click “new submissions”, and create a submission for the “CHI 2017 AC Volunteering” venue. The first thing the submission form will remind you of is that much of the relevant information comes from your Volunteer Profile in PCS, so you should make sure that’s up to date before submitting.

The only strict requirements for serving as an AC are (1) having published at least one paper or note at CHI (note that works in progress, posters, and workshop papers don’t fulfill this requirement), and (2) having reviewed at least one paper or note for CHI (again, you need to have reviewed for the papers and notes track specifically). These are the minimal requirements; most ACs have significantly more reviewing and authoring experience at CHI and related venues.

SCs (subcommittee chairs) will have access to all the volunteers for their subcommittee, although SCs will not be under any pressure to invite those volunteers and will, as always, be free to choose from previous ACs and experienced authors. This also means that the volunteering system is not a “requirement”. SCs will not submit reviews or accept/reject decisions through PCS. An email will go out to all volunteers before end of May to indicate that SCs have contacted all volunteers who have been selected to serve on the PC.
