At CHI2018, we look forward to your Video Showcase submissions: <>

Please see important dates and submission information below.


The videos showcase is a forum for human-computer interaction that leaps
off the page: vision videos, reflective pieces, humor, novel interfaces,
studies, and anything else that is a good match for video and relevant to
HCI. Your work will be screened by a large CHI audience during a special
session at CHI 2018, and will be considered for the Golden Mouse award.
Because of the large audience the video showcase attracts, it is one of the
best means for getting your message out to the CHI community — and to
continue to make it available. Videos will be available in the ACM Digital
Library after the conference, and will be posted to a CHI Video Showcase
Channel on YouTube.

Work will be judged on how much it intellectually engages an HCI audience
and how effectively it communicates its message. Ultimately, we are looking
to put together an enjoyable show for the attendees. Interesting but
poorly-produced videos will be rejected – but if it’s YouTube-ready per se,
it should be ready for the videos track! We will consider videos put
together by, and intended for, PR departments; however, the emphasis in the
video should still be on the research contributions. Please recall, too,
that many videos have a long legacy, and are incorporated into education

Traditionally, many of the videos we have received have emphasized design
innovations. For CHI 2018, we are particularly interested in seeing videos
that represent the diversity of CHI domains. That means your video might

   - research results
   - ethnographic reports and diary studies
   - case studies and industry stories
   - design studies

… and anything else that makes a good video, and speaks to the domains and
experience of human-computer interaction.

We intend to offer additional awards, such as Best Design Process Video and
Best Research Video; additional awards may be awarded as nominated by the
