CHI 2009: The 27th Annual CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing  

April 5-9, 2009, Boston, MA, USA,

Join us in Boston, MA for the 27th Annual CHI conference, the premier
international forum for all aspects of human - computer interaction.

CHI 2009 focuses on digital life in a new world. As our world moves  
online, we
increasingly use electronic means to work, play, and communicate. CHI  
2009 will
showcase the research and design of innovative systems to help us  
navigate this
increasingly digital world.

CHI 2009 will be held in Boston, Massachusetts. Boston is home to over  
colleges and universities and is one of the major technology centers  
of the
United States. Join us in Boston to celebrate the science and  
technology that
brings our world to life!

Call for Papers

The Human-Computer Interaction Archive

Archival Papers and Notes document work that makes a lasting and  
contribution to our knowledge and understanding of human-computer  
The CHI 2009 Organizers have combined the review and submission  
processes for
Papers and Notes, so they are no longer separate submission venues.

Submit by September 19, 2008

* Papers and Notes (archival format, 10 pages maximum for papers, 4  
maximum for Notes)
* IMPORTANT CHANGE! The CHI 2009 Papers and Notes program committee will
consist of subcommittees that each focus on a subset of topics in human-
computer interaction. As an author, you decide which subcommittee  
your paper. Choose the subcommittee that your believe offers the  
audience to review your research. You also will specify a contribution  
that guides how the paper should be evaluated by reviewers. Authors  
carefully assess the subcommittees and other changes described in the  
and Notes Call for Participation. Ask any clarifying questions well  
ahead of
the deadline.

Contemporary Trends

Contemporary Trends provoke, intrigue, and inspire the CHI audience.  
submissions record the history of HCI practice and innovation outside  
of the
scope of traditional archival papers.
