Submit Your Papers Here

CHI Papers are archival publications of original research in the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI).

Important Changes

  • Submission format: Please use the appropriate template, available for both LaTeX and Word (Windows and Mac). Note that for CHI 2020, we are returning to a slight variant of the template from CHI 2018 due to the many problems with the template used for CHI 2019.
  • Subcommittees: Every year, the makeup of subcommittees changes as the field shifts and volumes of submissions change: some earlier committees have either had a reduction in scope, while others have expanded. Please carefully review the CFP and linked documents to ensure you select up to two appropriate subcommittees for your submission.
  • Presentation length: at the conference, presentations of accepted papers will be 15 minutes in duration, including question time.

Message from the CHI Papers Chairs

CHI Papers are publications of original research in the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI). They represent mature, complete research. CHI Papers are read and cited worldwide, and have a broad impact on the development of HCI theory, method, and practice.

Authors must present accepted Papers at the CHI Conference. Accepted manuscripts appear in the Proceedings of the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, which appears in the ACM Digital Library. The ACM Digital Library includes a mechanism to enable authors to provide perpetual free public access to their papers.

Accepted Papers may come from any arena of HCI activity: academia or industry; science, engineering, or craft; analysis or design. Acceptance is highly competitive: all accepted Papers will score highly on originality, significance, validity, and presentation quality. We are looking forward to seeing your best work!

Your Paper at the Conference

Authors are required to present their work in a scheduled session with other CHI Papers. Paper authors will be allowed up to 15 minutes total (about a 12 minute talk with 3 minutes of questions) to present their work. Papers whose authors are not at the conference to present their paper may be removed from the ACM Digital Library.

Your Paper after the Conference

Accepted Papers will be distributed in the CHI Conference Proceedings available in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide. Video figures of accepted Papers will be archived on the ACM Digital Library.
