Submitting Content to CHI 2007

Submissions Now Closed

Submissions for all categories now closed for CHI 2007. Thank you to all submitters and reviewers. See you in San Jose!

Accepted Authors

Accepted authors are asked to review this information about presenting at CHI 2007.


Our goal is to put together a technical program with the broadest possible appeal. However, almost all of that program has to be put together from submissions made by people like yourselves and reviewed by your peers, which means that, in order to have a broad program, we first need to receive a broad range of submissions. If you are familiar with CHI's terminology and know what you want to submit, please refer to the list on the right and follow the links for your submission - otherwise please read on.

We know that we will receive a staggeringly large number of submissions and all work submitted to CHI is peer-reviewed. As a result we must ask that you only submit your work once - please contact us if you are having difficulty resolving where to submit your ideas. The acceptance rate and criteria do vary according to the type of submission, which is primarily based on the type of content and the intent of the submitter.

Types of Submissions

Submission types fall into four main categories.

The Human-Computer Interaction Archive

An important facet of these submissions is that, over the years, they help to record the history of actual HCI practice. Submission types include:


CHI offers students of HCI the ability to participate in competitive experiences; along with the valuable experience of working on problems and competing in a world-class environment, awards are given to the winners of the competition. Submission types include:


alt.chi is CHI's breathing hole, the space for change, where new ideas can be tried out and experienced. For alt.chi 2007 we are seeking unusual, challenging and thought- provoking work that might not otherwise be seen at the conference. This year, we are experimenting with a novel open review process which allows authors as well as the entire CHI comunity to become actively involved in the selection of presentations.
