Conference Call for Papers

CHI 2023 papers will follow an updated revise & resubmit process. Authors can read more about the rationale behind it in this CHI’23 post by the paper chairs.

Quick Facts
Important Facts
Revise and Resubmit: CHI 2023 Papers will include a revise and resubmit phase for papers above a certain threshold, where authors have the opportunity to respond to reviewer feedback and improve their paper as part of our review cycle. This will replace the rebuttal process.
Review and Final Submission Formats: CHI 2023 papers are reviewed in the single column ACM template, available for both LaTeX and Word (Windows and Mac). Accepted papers will be produced from LaTeX or Word source files into a single column HTML document and a two column PDF for publication.
Subcommittees: Each year, there are different people on the subcommittees as the field shifts and the volume of submissions change. Please carefully review CHI 2023 subcommittees to ensure you select up to two appropriate subcommittees for your submission.

Selection Process

Message from the CHI Papers Chairs
CHI Papers present excellent original research from all areas of Human Computer Interaction (HCI). CHI Papers are read and cited worldwide, and have a broad impact on the development of HCI theory, method, and practice.

Authors must present accepted papers at the CHI Conference. Accepted manuscripts appear in the Proceedings of the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, which appears in the ACM Digital Library. The ACM supports Gold and Green open access options, and corresponding authors from ACM Open institutions will be published Gold Open Access.

Accepted papers may come from any area of HCI activity: academia or industry; science, engineering, or craft; analysis or design. Acceptance is highly competitive: accepted papers will excel in originality, significance, validity, reproducibility, and presentation quality. We are looking forward to seeing your best work!

Preparing and Submitting Your Paper
Step 1. Write Your Paper
Your submission must be original; it cannot be published or under concurrent review elsewhere. If you make multiple submissions to CHI 2023 Papers, they must be distinct from each other. Please refer to the Guide to a Successful Paper Submission.
If you have any concurrent submissions to CHI that are closely related, you must include an anonymized version of that submission as supplementary material. The same rule applies if your submission is built directly on a project described in unpublished work or currently under review at other venues. Please see ACM guide on prior and simultaneous submission.
Please ensure that you use the right template; a single column format must be used for the reviewing phase. Use of different templates or formats may result in desk reject.
Your submission must be anonymized; please ensure that your submission conforms to the Anonymization Policy. Papers that violate the anonymization policy, including within the supplemental materials, will be desk rejected.
There is no page limit; authors are encouraged to submit a paper of length proportional to its contribution and there are no arbitrary maximum (or minimum) length papers. The length of typical submissions is expected to be approximately 7,000–8,000 words excluding references and figure/table captions. Submissions above 12,000 words or below 4,000 words, will be considered for desk rejection. Papers whose lengths are incommensurate with their contributions will be rejected.
Rigor and reproducibility: papers must include enough detail that the research can be reviewed for rigor and reproducibility. Papers that do not include enough detail to adequately assess the research may be rejected in the early reject phase.
Accessibility: Authors are strongly encouraged to work on improving the accessibility of their papers, including adding figure descriptions. If you have any questions or concerns about creating accessible submissions, please contact the Accessibility Chairs at [email protected].
Questions regarding the submission templates can be addressed by the Publications Team at [email protected]. All additional questions regarding the paper submissions process should be directed to the Papers Chairs at [email protected].
Step 2. Prepare Supplementary Materials (Optional)
Video figures: Video figures do not have a specified time limit for duration, although we recommend staying within 5 minutes.
Other Supplements: Other supplementary material may include, for example, survey text, experimental protocols, source code, and data, all of which can help others replicate your work. Any non-video supplementary material should be submitted as a single .zip file, including a README file with a description of the materials.
Reviewers should be able to access the contribution of the paper solely based on the pdf, i.e. the paper submission must stand on its own without the supplementary material.
If your submission is related to a concurrent submission or unpublished paper, you must upload an anonymized version of that paper as supplementary material. Failure to disclose related concurrent submissions may result in desk rejection.
All supplementary material must be anonymized. Non-anonymized supplemental materials will result in the desk reject of the entire submission.
Step 3. Select a Subcommittee
CHI receives over 3,000 Papers submissions. In order to provide high-quality reviews by experts for all submissions, the CHI program committee is divided into topical subcommittees. When you submit a paper, you will state a preference of two subcommittees whose mandates you believe your topic fits into. It is your responsibility to select the subcommittees that offer the best expertise to assess your research, and that you believe will most fully appreciate your contribution. If you are unsure, you can email the subcommittee chairs for advice. The program committee may re-assign submissions to a different subcommittee if neither of the subcommittees selected by the authors possesses adequate expertise in the submission’s topic.

Step 4. Complete Submission
Make your submission. Authors may submit and edit their materials on Precision Conference until the submission deadline. The submission system will open for submissions approximately four weeks before the Abstract submission deadline.
Abstract Deadline: Authors must submit their title, abstract (150 word max), list of authors, subcommittee selections, and other metadata before this deadline. After the abstract deadline, only the contact author can edit the submission files. No new submissions will be allowed after this deadline. Listed authors cannot be changed after this date before publication. R&R authors can request author changes with the paper chairs if needed.
Paper Deadline: Authors must submit the paper pdf of their paper submission before this deadline. No extensions will be granted.
Video and Supplementary Material Deadline: Authors can submit an optional video figure and any other optional supplementary material before this deadline.
Details on the review process itself are described in the Papers Review Process.

Interactivity for Papers
We encourage authors of paper submissions to also participate in the Interactivity track. Authors of papers who wish to participate are required to prepare a separate, non-anonymised submission for the Interactivity track. There will be no formal association between submissions to Interactivity and their associated paper. The content of the submission can be adapted from the existing paper.

Upon Acceptance of Your Paper
Contact authors of accepted papers will receive instructions on how to prepare and submit a final version by the Publication-Ready Deadline. If the authors are unable to meet these requirements by the Publication-Ready deadline, the Papers Chairs will be notified and may be required to remove the paper from the program.

The publication-ready version has to follow the new LaTeX and Word templates from ACM. Should you need technical assistance, please direct your technical query to [email protected].

Authors will be asked to submit a 30-second video preview summarizing the paper; this is optional, but highly encouraged, as it will increase the visibility of your paper before, at the conference, and in the ACM digital library in perpetuity.

Authors will also be required to assign either copyright or license to the ACM or to pay a fee to ACM for Open Access (details about ACM rights management: http://authors.acm.org, and about the ACM authorizer service: http://www.acm.org/publications/acm-author-izer-service). Obtaining permissions to use video, audio, or pictures of identifiable people or proprietary content rests with the author, not the ACM or the CHI conference.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date may affect the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.

Your Paper at the Conference
Authors are required to present their work in a scheduled session with other CHI Papers. The particulars (e.g. duration, and live/pre-recorded presentation) for paper authors to present their work will depend on the situation. Such information will be sent by email to the corresponding author. Papers whose authors are not at the conference to present their paper may be withdrawn from the ACM Digital Library.

Your Paper after the Conference
Accepted Papers will be distributed in the CHI Conference Proceedings available in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide. Video figures of accepted Papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.


During the most recent 2021 edition, 3.02% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 24.84% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 10.75% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 18.54% of all publications and 45.87% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.


Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.


The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).


The chart below illustrates experience levels of first authors in cases of publications with multiple authors.
