Message from the Workshops Co-chairs

Workshops are a chance for members of a community with common interests to meet in the context of a focused and interactive discussion. If you are working in an emerging area in HCI, please consider organizing a workshop. They are an opportunity to move a new field forward and build community. CHI workshops might address basic research, applied research, HCI practice, new methodologies, emerging application areas, design innovations, management and organizational issues, or HCI education. Each workshop should generate ideas that will give the HCI community a new, organized way of thinking about the topic or that suggest promising directions for future research. Some workshops have resulted in edited books or special issues of journals; you may consider including this goal in the design of your workshop. Others have created communities that spawned new, more specialized conferences.

What is a CHI Workshop?

Workshops will be held on Saturday and Sunday April 10 and 11, 2010. A workshop may be one or two days in length. Workshops are scheduled for six working hours per day, with a mid-morning break, a lunch break, and a mid-afternoon break. Workshops typically have 15 to 20 participants. Focused interaction among participants is important, so participants must have informed positions based on prior experience. And workshops should ideally foster discussion and exchange; they should not be miniature paper presentation sessions.

There are two groups of people involved in a workshop: the organizers and the participants. Workshop organizers submit a workshop proposal to CHI using the PCS submission system. The proposals are reviewed and either accepted or rejected. If a workshop is accepted, the workshop will be publicized by both CHI and the workshop organizers.

Workshop participants attend the workshop. Persons interested in being workshop participants must submit a position paper to the organizers of that workshop. Position papers are reviewed by the workshop organizers using their own criteria, and the organizers decide on the final list of participants. Workshops are only open to people who have had their position paper accepted by the workshop organizers. Participants must register for both the workshop and the CHI conference itself.

Participating in a Workshop

CHI 2010 workshops are listed below. To participate in a workshop, please look at the webpage of the workshop to learn about submitting a position paper to the workshop.

All workshop participants must register for both the workshop (last year the price was $175 for a one-day workshop and $250 for a two-day workshop) and for at least one day of the main conference (please view the current information about prices). The reason for this policy is that workshops are supposed to be a part of the CHI conference, not separate events that happen to be in the same location at the same time. The intention is that people will be attending the conference as well; the one-day registration is a special exception. Roughly speaking, the conference fee pays your share of all the overall conference expenses – the professional staff, A/V, publicity, web site, committee expenses, etc. The workshop fee is supposed to be the actual incremental cost of the having the workshop (room rental, food). Only those who have had position papers accepted can attend workshops. If you are an accepted workshop participant, you will be provided a registration code.

All workshops start at 9:00 am on the specified day(s), and will end approximately at 6:00 pm.

Complementing some of our healthcare-related workshops is a special Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare (WISH) on April 11. The Computer Human Interaction Mentoring (CHIMe) Workshop will also be held on this day. CHIMe is open to graduate students and those interested must submit an application by the workshop's deadline. Unlike traditional workshops, WISH is open to all CHI attendees, not just speakers (it is more like a mini-conference). Read about these pre-conference events.
