There have been some issues with CHI2007 submission and review
processes, but this little bit seems compelling for our community to
try something different.

It is a pretty neat challenge to the CHI community and I would
encourage people with a different idea to submit something interesting
and different.

Good luck!

FIRST CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:

alt.chi 2007
http://www.chi2007.org/submit/altchi.php

CHI 2007, ACM conference on Computer/Human Interaction
28 April - 3 May, 2007, San Jose, California, USA

The CHI conference is the leading venue to present innovations in
human computer interaction. The year's best work from researchers and
practitioners is selected in a strictly competitive process. But this
competition also inveitably means that many valuable contributions
are never presented at CHI - and some might not even be submitted.

With alt.chi 2007, we want to open up for unusual, challenging and
thought-provoking work that might not otherwise be seen at the
conference. alt-chi is a place to experiment with how CHI submissions
are presented, submitted, reviewed and selected. alt.chi is CHI's
breathing hole, the space for change, where new ideas can be tried
out and experienced.

Alt.chi invites controversial ideas, novel prototypes, failed but
valuable user studies, bold experiments, and anything else that can
give a fresh perspective on CHI. We invite submissions that explore
technical or practical limitations in technologies or methodologies;
that introduce promising, although currently non-viable techniques;
that critique the current state of the field; and that explore topics
outside of current discussion. In particular, we invite work that
would otherwise not have been presented at CHI 2007 - whether because
it has been rejected from other venues (e.g. Papers), or because it
is too different to be submitted in the first place!

The alt.chi 2007 program will be selected through a non-anonymous
process, where all submissions and reviews are completely open. There
will be an open forum were anyone can register to submit and review,
and all submitters will be required to take part in the selection
process. All reviews and submissions will be available to anyone who
registers. We want to encourage discussion and debate on what makes a
good alt.chi (or regular CHI) submission, what makes a good review,
and, ultimately, what makes for a fruitful conference experience.

Timeline:
1st December Forum opened
1st February Forum closed for submissions - No more submissions
accepted
2nd February Review and discussion of submissions starts
12th March Chairs present shortlist of selected submissions
19th March Invitation of successful submissions to be presented at
the conference

Take the plunge. Join us for alt.chi 2007!

More details on submitting can be found at:

Lars Erik Holmquist and Barry Brown, alt.chi 2007 chairs
