The CHI 2013 Organizing Committee is soliciting proposals for new
Communities to be Featured at the conference.

Submission deadline: 22 June 2012
Notification: 27 July 2012
Submission format: 4-page Extended Abstract

New communities selection process: Juried; that is, community proposals
will be reviewed and decided upon by a committee of HCI experts, rather
than going through a full peer-review process.

Communities are a chance for SIGCHI members with a common area of interest
to gather and advance their area through the CHI conference. If your
emerging community has grown enough to where you can organize a significant
body of work, and volunteers to ensure its quality, consider proposing a
community within the conference. Communities are about moving an area of
the field forward. CHI communities might address new areas of practice, new
methodologies, emerging application areas, design innovations, management
and organizational issues, HCI education, engineering and modeling, systems
development, theory or other areas. Some will represent strategic areas for
SIGCHI or the conference, and others will represent areas of interest
within the larger SIGCHI community. Their influence may be felt through
existing contributions and may innovate in how the content is treated
within the program. Communities emerging through the CHI conference may
even spawn new, more specialized conferences in the future.
