* Submission Deadline Sunday, December 8 *

What will be published at CHI 25 years from now?

Visions of the future profoundly influence current research. From the 
inspirational role of science fiction, to narratives about development and 
progress, to utopian as well as dystopian predictions about the impacts of 
technology on society, the tomorrows toward which we work, consciously or 
unconsciously, significantly shape what counts as an important contribution in 
today’s research. However, despite their importance, relatively limited 
discussion occurs about the details of what such futures might entail.

This call offers an opportunity to speculate about what those potential futures 
might hold. Submissions are invited of abstracts for fictional papers that might 
appear, will appear, should appear, or perhaps should not appear in the 
proceedings of the 2039 ACM CHI Conference. What will have changed? What will 
remain the same? Visionary calls, critical reflections, and prophetic warnings 
are all encouraged. Abstracts are welcome both from regular CHI attendees and 
from those at the periphery of the community and beyond. A selection of these 
abstracts will be curated into a submission to the CHI Conference’s alt.chi track.

Abstracts should be ~150 words long, provide a title for the fictional future 
paper, and may optionally include an image as well as authors’ affiliations. 
Abstracts will be selected for inclusion based on their ability to represent a 
diversity of guiding research visions, their excitatory or provocative 
potential, the space allotted by the CHI extended abstracts format, and the 
likelihood of engendering conversations about the future of HCI.

Abstracts should be submitted via email to Eric P. S. Baumer 
([log in to unmask]) with “[CHI 2039]” in the subject line.

Abstract Submission Deadline – December 8, 2013
Curatorial Decision Notification – December 16, 2013

See for further details and dates on the
