# '''Author selects the review sub-committee'''. The review committee is split into several sub-committees, each specializing in a range of CHI topics. This has been done to give you more ability to direct your paper towards reviewers who are true experts in the subject of your paper. As an author, it is your responsibility to select the sub-committee that you believe has the expertise that best matches your paper. You will do this during the submission process, where you will see a list of sub-committees, the topics they are covering, the sub-committee Chair, and some of the Associate Chairs on it. Note: the the distribution of topics across subcommittees, along with the description of each subcommittee, is currently tentative pending additional feedback from the community and data collection to evaluate it's understandability and usefulness for authors.

to:
As an interdisciplinary conference, CHI accepts the following types of contributions to the Papers / Notes venue: '''STILL TO BE FINALIZED'''

* '''Refinement of Artifacts and Techniques Papers '''concern the on-going refinement of knowledge of interface artifacts and techniques already well-known to the HCI community.

* '''Understanding Users Papers ''' contribute an analysis of people, their behaviours, their situations and context, and their interaction with their artifacts.

* '''Systems, Tools, Architectures and Infrastructure Papers ''' describe the software and technology associated with a novel interactive application, user interface feature, user interface design or development tool.

* '''Methodology Papers''' describe a novel method that helps us design an HCI artifact or evaluate an HCI artifact or setting. That it, it improves how we do what we do.

* '''Theory Papers ''' describe principles, concepts, or models on which work in HCI might be based.

* '''Breakthrough, Creativity and Vision Papers ''' contribute a significant innovation, vision or design concept in how a user interface might appear, behave or be used, or a new invention that significantly enables new styles of user interfaces.

* '''Experience papers''' describe how HCI methods, theory, or tools were applied to the design or development of an HCI artifact.

* '''Opinion Papers''' are provocative essays. They present the author's well-supported opinion about a topic of significant interest to a relatively broad segment of the CHI community. They have well supported arguments (including consideration of other perspectives, and/or data from research or practice, if applicable), and be expected to have a stimulating effect on the CHI community.

!!What is a CHI Paper and Note?
As an interdisciplinary conference, CHI accepts the following types of contributions to the Papers and Notes venue:

* LIST - MAYBE THE CRITERIA CATEGORIES?

In all cases, a CHI Paper or Note must break new ground. CHI Papers provide complete and substantial support for its results and conclusions. CHI Notes are much more focused and succinct contributions that can be described in fewer pages. Successful submissions typically represent a major advance for the field of HCI. CHI Papers and Notes undergo a rigorous review process.

!! Preparing and Submitting your CHI Paper or NOTE


!! Write and Format Your Paper / NPOTE
Papers / Notes must be anonymized. A paper is no more than 10 pages long, while a note is no more than 4 pages long. This includes figures, references, and appendices. Papers and Notes must contain an abstract that is less than 150 words long and clearly states the contribution to the HCI field. Final submission PDFs must be no larger than 4 megabytes large. Please read the HCI Archive Format for detailed information on how your Paper or Note should be written and formatted.

Your submission must be original work. It cannot have been published elsewhere, nor can it be under concurrent review for publication by another conference or journal. All references must be complete, accurate, accessible to the HCI public, and conform to the Conference Proceedings Publication Format. Do not cite publications that are proprietary or confidential at the time of publication.

Authors should read the [[nolink|guide to successful archive submissions]].

!!Craft a 30 word Contribution and Benefits Statement
Authors must develop a 30 word contribution and benefits statement for their Paper or Note. A contribution/benefit statement describes the contribution made to HCI and the benefit that readers can gain from it. This statement will be entered when the Paper or Note is submitted, and will be seen and assessed by reviewers along with the Paper or Note.

Prepare Video Figure (Optional)
Your submission may be accompanied by a short digital video figure or interactive illustration that is up to five minutes in length and no more than 30 MB final data size. Please see the [[nolink|guide to successful video submissions]] for production hints. Since not everyone who reads the Paper or Notes may view the video figure, your Paper or Note must stand on its own without the figure, and will be reviewed as such.

!!Make Your Final Submission
Authors are advised to log into [[nolink|PCS submission system]] and become familiarized with the online submission process well before the deadline. Authors can submit and resubmit materials as often as they please before the deadline. This includes descriptive information (meta-data) you provide during the upload process (e.g., keywords, sub-committee that will handle your submission, and submission type) as well as the abstract, your submission, contribution and benefits statement, and (optional) video figure.

The submission site will be locked promptly at the deadline, DD MMM 2008 (5:00pm PDT), and authors will no longer be allowed access to the submissions. To be fair to all authors, no extensions will be granted.

!!CHI Paper Review Process
Papers and Notes undergo a rigorous review process, managed by the Papers chairs and several sub-committees, each comprising a coordinator and associate chairs. The review process is as follows:

* Each Paper or Note is assigned to a sub-committee chosen by the author. The area coordinator will then assign the submission to an associate chair, based on their expertise.
* Associate chair assigns Paper or Note to at least three hand-picked reviewers
* Reviewers reviews the Paper or Note according to the review criteria that best matches the submission type indicated by the author.
* Associate chair completes a meta-review based on the reviews. They may also seek further reviews of the Paper or Note
* Authors see preliminary reviews and can respond with rebuttal
* Associate chair (and potentially secondary associate chair) compose recommendation to committee based on reviews and rebuttal
* Committee discusses and finalizes decisions at a two-day Paper / Notes committee meeting
* Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference.

Upon Acceptance of your CHI Paper
Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection on 10 Dec 2007, or shortly after. Contact authors of accepted Papers will receive instructions on how to prepare and submit the camera ready version of their Papers. These will be due on 11 Jan 2008 (5:00pm PST).

Please note that submissions will not be published without a signed form releasing publishing copyright to the ACM. Attaining permissions to use video, audio, or pictures of identifiable people or proprietary content rests with the author, not the ACM or the CHI conference.

!!Presenting your CHI Paper or Note at the Conference
Authors will present their work in a scheduled session with other CHI Papers and CHI Notes. Paper authors will be allowed 25 minutes (about a 18-20 minute talk with 5-7 minutes of questions) to present their work. Notes authors will be allowed 15 minutes (about a 10-12 minute talk with 3-5 minutes of questions) to present their work.

See [[nolink|Conference Technical Support]] for information about the computing and A/V equipment that will be provided by the conference as well as for tips on preparing and giving a good CHI talk.

!! Your CHI Paper / Note After the Conference
Accepted Papers and Notes will be distributed in the CHI Conference Main Proceedings (Print and DVD). They will also be placed in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide. Video figures of accepted Papers and Notes will be archived on the Conference DVD and the ACM Digital Library.

!!Message from the CHI Papers Chairs
CHI Papers and Notes present significant contributions to research and practice in all aspects of Human Computer Interaction. CHI Notes are briefer and more focused than CHI papers, but are otherwise similar.
All accepted Papers and Notes are presented at the CHI Conference and are published in the CHI Conference Proceedings. The CHI Proceedings are read and cited worldwide and have wide impact on the development of HCI theory, method and practice.

The submission and review process is somewhat different this year than last year.
# '''Papers and Notes are handled by the same review committees.''' You will still have to indicate ''paper'' or ''note'' when submitting it.
# '''Author selects the review sub-committee'''. The review committee is split into several sub-committees, each specializing in a range of CHI areas. As an author, it is your responsibility to select the sub-committee that you believe has the expertise that best matches your paper. You will do this during the submission process, where you will see a list of sub-committees, the areas they are covering, the sub-committee Coordinator, and some of the Associate Chairs on it.
# '''Author selects the paper type'''.

Accepted Papers and Notes may come from any arena of HCI activity: academia or business; science, engineering or craft; analysis or design. But acceptance is highly competitive - all accepted Papers and Notes will score highly on innovation, contribution and quality of thought and writing. Reach beyond: submit your best work.
