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 'player-computer interaction'. The goal of the CHI PLAY conference is to highlight and foster discussion on high-quality 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. Full paper acceptance rate is typically below 30%. 

As an ACM 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 player experiences
-    Advances in game user research and game evaluation methods
-    Psychology of players and typologies of games and players
-    Gamification, persuasive games, and motivational design
-    Virtual and augmented reality in games and play
-    Novel controls, input 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. The conference invites submissions including full papers, workshop and course proposals, interactive demos, work-in-progress papers, and Rapid Communications papers. Additionally, students are invited to submit to the student game competition and the doctoral consortium.

Authors are invited to submit high-quality original work to advance the field of player-computer interaction research, of 4 to 10 pages in the ACM SIGCHI Proceedings format, references excluded.  

Important dates (all times are 23:59 Anywhere on Earth or AoE):
April 7, 2020:        Full papers submission deadline
June 5, 2020:        Reviews sent to authors
June 12, 2020:      Rebuttal deadline
June 26, 2020:      Decisions sent to authors
August 7, 2020:    Final camera-ready papers due

CHI PLAY 2020 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 research approach and 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 in terms of rigour. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published in the ACM Digital Library and will be presented at the conference with a standard speaking length.
