I apologize for the late response to this, but I too am curious as to what
you are referring to, David - as far as I am aware of, there haven't been
any logistical or technical issues related to the CHI2007 submission and
review process. There are certainly usability issues with the software used
for the reviewing process (PCS), which is ironic but in a
not-very-funny-way; I'm also sure people may be upset about having material
rejected, but that's part of the process of running a peer-reviewed
conference, and I wouldn't necessarily consider that an "issue". Other than
that, things seem to be going quite smoothly, and having looked at every
experience report submitted thus far, I'm thoroughly jazzed about the
potential content and caliber of the conference.

For what it's worth, alt.chi is traditionally the funniest (and often the
most interesting) session to attend at CHI, and if you have work that is
even remotely applicable, I would certainly encourage you to submit it. My
true geek comes out when I see, and appreciate, things like Monzy's Edible
User Interfaces (http://www.monzy.org/eui/ - he really did present this at
CHI two years ago).

Again, with regard to the review process, I would love to hear of problems
that come up so I can do something to fix them.
