The Biannual Conference of the Italian ACM SIGCHI Chapter
23- 25 September  2019, Padova, Italy

In cooperation with ACM-SIGCHI and SIGCHI Italy.
Paper proceedings will be published by ACM and included in the ACM
Digital Library.

Short and long papers submission deadline: April 15

CHItaly is the Biannual Conference of  the Italian SIGCHI Chapter and
open to both members and nonmembers, especially addressing HCI
scholars working in the Mediterranean and central European countries.
This year it is organized by the University of Padova and by Ca’
Foscari University of Venice

Submissions are welcome on *any* topic of human-computer interaction.
Additionally, this edition will elaborate the theme of the 'next
interaction', acknowledging that the relations between the individual
self, society, environment and technology are deeply changing.
Information and Communication Technologies offer new opportunities to
sense huge amounts of data and to use such data to augment human
knowledge, influence behavior and control the environment. How can
human society take advantage of these new opportunities? What are the
risks related to delegating control to automated, networked, sensing
machines? Which ethical boundaries need to be confirmed and which to
be revised? CHItaly19 will pay special attention to topics such as:
- responsibly designing the interchange with the ICT components that
are progressively becoming a symbiotic part of our body and mind, and
keeping the human in the loop while implementing automation in the
factory of the future;
- getting publicly engaged and able to interact with the huge amount
of data related to the urban, social and natural environment, in order
to stimulate proper actions within a sustainable, smart framework;
- exploiting new interactive paradigms to augment users’ knowledge and
engagement with cultural heritage, and to access different knowledge
domains, including art and science, by coupling cognitive and
emotional experience;
- designing persuasive, motivating, empowering technologies that
increase awareness of health issues and motivate to positive life

All submissions must be in English and contain original work not
published elsewhere.

- LONG AND SHORT PAPERS. Long papers must not exceed eight (8) pages
in length, and short papers must not exceed four (4) pages in length,
with maximum two additional pages for references. Long and short
papers are subject to a double-blind review process by members of the
Program Committee. Submissions must be anonymous, avoiding to include
information (authorship, acknowledgements, name of application or
software or project) suggestive of the identity of the authors; it can
be added later, to the camera ready version of the accepted papers.
Both long and short accepted papers will be included in the main
proceedings published by ACM. They must be formatted using the ACM
SIGCHI format. Three options are available:
- Microsoft Word template
- LaTex template
- Overleaf template for LaTex online collaborative writing
Inclusion in the main proceedings is conditional upon registration of
the presenter within the recommended deadline.

-DC AND POSTERS. The Doctoral Consortium (DC) is a special session of
the conference where a limited number of PhD students can receive some
expert feedback on their work. Applications to participate must
describe the research questions, the project position with respect to
the state of the art, the research plans and methodology, as well as
the ideas and results achieved.
Posters are descriptions of small studies/experiences, or of recent
study insights of works still in progress. Posters will be displayed
and presented during a dedicated session of the conference, and will
have a 1 minute presentation slot in one of the plenary sessions. In
order for accepted posters to be displayed, poster presenters are
required to register and be present during the poster session.
Posters, and dc proposals are 2-page word abstracts in the ACM
template and pdf format, references included. Accepted posters and dc
proposals will be included in the adjunct proceedings volume (not
published by ACM).

-TUTORIAL AND WORKSHOPS. Workshops are small meetings on a dedicated
topic; tutorials are small courses on a specific tool or technique.
Candidate organizers can submit their proposal as a 2-page description
in pdf format including the name of the organizers, affiliations,
motivations, organization, expected outcome, duration, material. Upon
approval, the workshop/tutorial will be devoted a dedicated space on
the conference website, and its description will be included in the
adjunct proceedings (not published by ACM). A limited number of slots
are available.

- DEMOS. To propose a demonstration of an interactive prototype during
the demo session, developers can submit a 2-page description of
authors, affiliation, status of implementation and deployment, goals,
equipment brought/needed. For demos of commercial products, please
contact the organizers to participate as a sponsor.

Long and short papers are to be submitted online via EasyChair
All other submission types are to be sent as an attachment to
[log in to unmask], specifying the format type (i.e., whether it is
for a poster, demo, workshop, tutorial or dc)

Awards to the best paper, poster and dc proposal will be granted.
