Overview and Introduction

Most participation categories at CHI are for everyone: students, practitioners, researchers, designers and educators. However, please be aware that both the Papers and Short Talks/Interactive Posters categories are very highly competitive. To be accepted, work submitted to these categories must be of the highest international standard. Other categories are equally demanding but less competitive, and may be the best place for you to participate. For example, work that needs to be shown rather than just presented is best submitted as a Demonstration. For work that must be shown to children, don't forget about CHIkids!

CHI is a place to learn as well as a place to inform. Before the conference, tutorials and workshops let you update your knowledge in a range of settings from formal instruction through to participative collaborative work. If you have tried and tested expertise in some area of HCI, then do consider submitting a tutorial.

CHI is also a place for debate. You can begin now on CHIplace ( and carry the discussion on into workshops, panels and special interest groups (SIGs) -- but to make sure you get to discuss your hot topic, you'll need to submit to one of these categories!

Lastly, wherever you work and whatever you do, don't forget the opportunities for recruitment and exhibiting at CHI 2003.
