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--
