Guide for Presenters

Presentation at CHI is exciting and challenging. Please read the Guidelines for Presenting at CHI2004 prior to your arrival at the conference.

Submissions to CHI2004 Papers, Demonstrations, Development Consortium, Panels, Tutorials, Workshops, and Student Volunteer applications are now closed. However, there's still plenty of time to submit to Late Breaking Results (short papers), Design Expo (design case studies), Doctoral Consortium, HCI Overview, Student Competition, and Special Interest Groups.

The Papers and Late Breaking Results categories report research and practice in a specific format (see the Conference Publications Format). Design Expo showcases Design Case Studies, an expanded format that accommodates extensive illustration of the design process and outcomes (see Design Expo for Case Study guidelines). Other categories are equally demanding but less competitive, and present excellent opportunities to participate. For example, work that needs to be shown as well as presented is best submitted as a Demonstration.

Each submission category has specific instructions. Please see the submission venue you are interested in for further detail. Submissions to three venues, Papers, Late Breaking Results, and Design Expo are made digitally through the Precision Conference System. Instructions for this system are included in the Instructions for Electronic Submissions. All other submissions are sent directly to the venue Co-Chairs. Please contact the individual Co-Chairs for questions and comments on the submission process.

Nearly all submissions use the Conference Publications Format. In addition, Tutorials offers a format for Tutorial Notes. Please note that Design Expo has a different and expanded format.

CHI2004 is a place to learn as well as a place to inform. Before the conference, Tutorials and Workshops can update your knowledge in a range of settings, from formal instruction to participative, collaborative work. If you have proven expertise in an area of interest to the conference (especially the Special Areas), then please consider submitting a tutorial.
