***********************   Call for Participation  **********************
**********   Basic Research Symposium, 22nd & 23rd March 1997 **********
****************** NEW SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31ST JANUARY ***************

The Advance Programme for CHI97 became available for the first time on
Wednesday the 15th of January (can be found at:, which was the same time submissions
for the BRS were due. Those who had not seen the email advertisement for
the Basic Research Symposium and were waiting for the Advance Programme
would thus have been excluded from this event. In consequence, the
deadline for submitting research summaries for the BRS has been extended
to Friday, January 31st.

The Basic Research Symposium is a special event with a five-year history at
CHI. It is a hybrid between a mini-conference and a workshop that presents an
opportunity for researchers from different disciplines to share their visions
through exchanging new developments and insights from their own fields. The
goal of the Symposium is to provide an interactive forum to promote and
enhance in-depth scientific discussion of developing research issues.
Discussion topics are determined by participants' research interests.

Participation is limited to 30 participants. Invitation to the Symposium will
be based on a 1500 word (max.) position paper/research summary which will
be reviewed by the symposium organising committee.

Submissions should describe:

  * The research question that the work addresses
  * The research methods that are employed or anticipated
  * The problems with work in the identified area as a whole
  * Problems or concerns with the current approach
  * Questions that other symposium participants might be able to help
    the author(s) address

All submissions should be in electronic form, and should include full contact
information (e-mail address, conventional address, URL if available), a
50-100 word abstract, selected keywords and references to a maximum of five
of your own research publications.

Submissions should be posted to the World Wide Web and the URL emailed to
the symposium co-chairs at: [log in to unmask] Alternative means of
submission may be arranged by contacting the co-chairs.
