We encourage you to submit case studies that describe your work applying human-centered design principles. Suggested design contexts include:

Standalone products:

* Mobile device interfaces
* Specialized applications (e.g. kiosks, web applications, CDi, etc.)
* Embedded computing interfaces
* Interactive data visualization

Communication/collaboration environments:

If you haven't already downloaded the CFP or case study template-- they're still here: http://www.formandcontent.net/chi2002/forum.htm

A point of clarification brought to our attention regarding the case study template: in the 'Post launch results' section, be sure to include information regarding the actual user experience / user reaction to the product, in addition to any financial or other success metric data.

Enjoy the holidays!

We eagerly look forward to your submissions--
