The deadline for submission is April 28, 2021. We welcome bids from any 

Please address the following points in your bid (do not exceed three pages):

1. Clearly identify how you and your team who will manage IDC (including 
some members of your program committee) have been involved in past IDC 
events. We encourage teams with a good mix of new people but also with 
some members who have been involved in IDC before. We also appreciate 
the inclusion of people from different parts of the world and varied 
experiences and backgrounds.

2. Briefly explain the relevant experience the host institution has in 
supporting and organizing workshops and conferences.

4. Highlight the benefits of hosting IDC at your proposed venue and 
location for the IDC community as a whole. Explain how your bid will 
help IDC reach out to new attendees, maybe industrial, maybe from 
another academic discipline and explain the unique aspects of the bid 
that will facilitate this outreach.

5. Identify potential sponsors, co-organizers and industry partners.

As IDC is a SIGCHI sponsored conference, please familiarize yourself 
with the SIGCHI Help Pages on organizing a conference. The information 
can be found 
The IDC conference has a handbook that will be helpful as you organize 
the conference.

The bid will be reviewed by the IDC conference steering group, which 
includes past chairs of this event. Bids that are successful at the 
initial stage will require further development where we will seek to 
have some details of a proposed program committee and an outline of the 
budget. DO NOT include this in stage 1. The steering committee will 
select the host for IDC 2022 no later than May 14, 2021. The IDC2022 
host will be expected to be present and announce the conference during 
the IDC 2021 conference which will be held virtually
