* 5th ACM SIGCHI Annual Symposium on Computer-Human Interaction in Play

* Melbourne, Australia

* October 28-31, 2018

*    <> | #chiplay18



CHI PLAY is the international and interdisciplinary conference, sponsored by ACM SIGCHI, for researchers and professionals across all areas of play, games, and human-computer interaction (HCI). We call this area °Įplayer-computer interaction°Į. The goal of the CHI PLAY conference is to highlight and foster discussion on high-quality (full paper acceptance rate has been consistently <30%) research in games and HCI, as a foundation for the future of digital play. To this end, the conference blends academic research papers, interactive play demos, and industry insights.

CHI PLAY 2018 is being held as part of Melbourne International Games Week with games events throughout the city, including PAX Australia (the only Penny Arcade Expo outside the USA) a gaming culture festival drawing tens of thousands of gamers to Melbourne each year.


April 13, 2018:      Full papers submission deadline

June 12, 2018:     Reviews sent to authors

June 18, 2018:     Rebuttal deadline

July 6, 2018:        Decisions sent to authors

August 3, 2018:   Final publication-ready papers due

4 to 10 pages in ACM SIGCHI Proceedings format, references excluded

Important dates (all times are 23:59 Hawaii-Aleutian Time Zone (UTC -10:00))


As a SIGCHI-sponsored conference, CHI PLAY welcomes contributions that further an understanding of the player experience, as well as contributions on novel designs or implementations of player-computer interactions, including, but not limited to, the following:

°‹     Playful interactions and new game mechanics

°‹     Innovative implementation techniques that affect player experiences

°‹     Studies of applied games and player experiences (e.g., games and play for health,

      wellbeing, and learning)

°‹     Accessible and inclusive design and play experience

°‹     Advances in game user research and game evaluation methods

°‹     Psychology of players and typologies of games and players

°‹     Gamification, persuasive games, and motivational game design

°‹     Virtual and augmented reality in games and play

°‹     Novel controls or display technologies for games and play

°‹      Tools for game creation

°‹      Innovations to advance the work of game designers and developers

°‹      Game analytics and novel visualizations of player experiences

°‹      Developer experiences and studies of developers

°‹      Industry case studies

Although CHI PLAY welcomes contributions on the effects of various technologies, software, or algorithms on player experience, technical contributions without clear indications of the impact on players or developers are not within the scope of CHI PLAY.

Authors are invited to submit high-quality original work to advance the field of player-computer interaction research.

CHI PLAY 2018 will not make a distinction between notes and papers, but encourages authors to use the number of pages necessary, with a lower limit of 4 pages and an upper limit of 10 pages. Paper length should match the size of the contribution. References do not count towards the page limit. All papers, irrespective of length, will undergo the same review process and are evaluated against the same review criteria. All papers will be included in the conference proceedings published the ACM Digital Library. All papers will be presented at the conference with a standard speaking length.
