IxDA,

If you think CHI is not for you - think again.

There was a time when CHI bowed to the confines of Academia, leaving
designers and usability practitioners frustrated and alienated. That's
changed, and it has changed in a big way. Since the 2006 conference, the
organizing committee has pushed hard to give practicing creatives a voice in
the programming and structure of the conference.

Courses have been integrated into the main conference and are provided as
part of the conference registration fee; these courses are taught be leaders
in the field, and are immediately applicable towards everyday work. Panels
have been opened up to industry experts, and are more interactive and
applicable to a practitioner audience. Even the written format, typically
associated with academia, has been extended into a "contemporary trends"
venue. This new venue provides a forum for practitioners, who may feel more
comfortable articulating their work through images rather than extensive
prose.

If you still think CHI is not speaking to your needs - speak up! We have
dedicated conference committee members to be the ears to your concerns and
complaints, and the voice to your cause.

Design Community Co-chairs: chi2008-design at acm.org
Usability Community Co-chairs: chi2008-usability at acm.org

We want you to be an integral part of CHI08 and beyond. This is the last
call to submit your Case Study <http://chi2008.org/case_studies.html> based
on real world experiences, a Panel <http://chi2008.org/panels.html> of
stimulating and contentious experts, or your Interactive vision
<http://chi2008.org/interactivity.html> for the future of technology by 3
Oct 2007. Two new venues have also been devised for the design community:
Design Theatre <http://chi2008.org/design_theatre.html> and Design Community
Events <http://chi2008.org/design_events.html>. All submissions are in an
extended abstract format <http://chi2008.org/chi2008extendedabstracts.doc>,
which places emphasis on visual content and leaves room for a creative
articulation of your work.

Come join us in Florence, Italy in April 2008, to celebrate the cultural
center of science and art. We hope you try CHI again - it has changed, and
we trust you will find the changes to be welcome and timely.

The CHI 2008 Committee
