(Updated) Call for submissions for CHI 12 Interactivity Research and  
Explorations track

For CHI 2012 there are two categories within the Interactivity scheme  
with separate submission processes.
	• Research
	• Explorations

	• Submission: 9 January 2012 (5:00pm PDT) (see website for details)
	• Notification: 10 February 2012
	• Camera Ready: 17 February 2012
	• Selection process (both Research and Explorations): Juried and  
	• Extended Abstract: on DVD and ACM Digital Library

Interactivity is your chance to fully engage CHI attendees at a  
personal level by letting them see, touch, squeeze, hear or even smell  
your interactive visions for the future. Interactivity promotes and  
provokes discussion of the role of technology, and invites  
contributions from industry, research, the arts and design.

Interactivity Research is the high-visibility, high-impact forum of  
the Technical Program which allows you to present your hands-on  
demonstration in two sessions. This track is for the year's most  
exciting research prototypes and demos. If you have a working  
prototype, device, or system we want to know about it. Getting people  
hands-on with your interface is often the best way to communicate what  
you have created.

Interactivity Explorations is about cultural applications and  
explorations of future technologies. If your work asks questions and  
inspires reflection on the role of technology in people’s lives, their  
dreams and imaginations we want to hear from you. We are looking for  
artworks, design experiences as well as inspirational technologies  
that the audience can engage with intellectually and imaginatively.  
The Explorations track moves beyond proof of concept prototypes to  
cultural applications and explorations. We invite submissions from  
artists, researchers, designers and industry: come share your vision  
of the future with the delegates at CHI.0

New & better this year: Get more attention, simplified submission

We understand that interactivity authors often contribute more effort  
than any other contributors to CHI. To recognize this, we have made  
the following changes:

Interactivity Research:
More visibility for Interactivity Research content: Different from  
previous years, there is a dedicated time-slot on Tuesday afternoon  
with no competing paper sessions, so you will have CHI attendees’  
undivided attention. The Wednesday lunch-time slot will provide  
another opportunity for conference exhibitors to see your exhibit*.  *  
We may invite a small number of selected submissions to exhibit at  
other occasions which will be negotiated.

Interactivity Explorations (for the first time at CHI!):
Explorations will be exhibited throughout the conference, each work on  
a specified day, as well as at the conference reception*. The audience  
will have the time and space to view everything, and authors will have  
a chance to see more of CHI, as well as view the other explorations  
and research demos. * Presentation times will be negotiated with  
accepted submissions to accommodate the requirements of the different  

Similar to past years, there is  a simplified submission process for  
"paper" and "note" authors: The interactivity deadline is 3 weeks  
after the paper/notes acceptance notifications. We encourage authors  
of accepted papers and notes to submit their work also to the  
appropriate Interactivity track of their choice. To simplify things,  
upload the PDF of your accepted paper or note instead of the extended  

Funding: If your project requires you to ship a large amount of  
material, talk to us: we can fund travel & shipping expenses for  
selected projects.
