CHI 2013 Workshop on Grand Challenges in Text Entry
Paris - April 2013
Submission Deadline: 18 January

We invite position papers for the CHI 2013 Workshop on Grand
Challenges in Text Entry. This one-day workshop will offer an
interdisciplinary forum of discussion for both practitioners and
academics interested in text entry in its many forms and varieties.

This workshop focuses on three grand challenges in text entry research:
  - Removing the performance bottle-neck in text entry
  - Designing efficient localized text entry methods
  - Bridging the communication gap between users with disabilities and
society at large

Researchers from both industry and academia with an interest in text
entry are invited to submit a position paper. The paper should be at
most four pages in the CHI Extended Abstracts format. This position
paper should including a brief biography and should address one of the
workshop's three grand challenges.

Participants will be selected on the basis of the quality of their
position paper. At least one author of each accepted paper must
register for the workshop and for (at least) one day of the CHI
conference itself. Participants will be invited to present a position
statement on at least one panel and will also present a poster on
their current text entry research interests.
