You must submit the abstract/metadata by the 7th Sept AoE in order to submit the full paper by the 14th Sept AoE.
CHI 2024 papers will follow an updated revise & resubmit process. Authors can read more about the rationale behind it in this post by the paper chairs.
- Revise and Resubmit: CHI 2024 Papers will continue with 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.
- Short Papers: Submissions of 5,000 words or less are strongly encouraged.
- Standard Length Papers: Submissions between 5000 and 12000 words are considered standard (about 7000-8000 words on average).
- Excessive Length Considerations: Submissions of 12,000 words or more will be considered excessively long, given additional scrutiny for whether the contribution is commensurate with length, and possibly desk rejected.
- Accessibility Best Practice: Paper submissions are expected to follow the SIGCHI Guide to an Accessible Submission.
- Inclusivity Best Practice: Paper authors should pay careful attention to who is – and is not – included in their submissions.
All times are in Anywhere on Earth (AoE) time zone. When the deadline is day D, the last time to submit is when D ends AoE. Check your local time in AoE.

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 (for remote presentation options see below). 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 as 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!
All submission metadata, including required fields in PCS like author names, affiliations, and order, must be complete and correct by the submission deadline. This information is crucial to the integrity of the review process and author representation. No changes to metadata after the submission deadline will be allowed.
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 2024 Papers, they must be distinct from each other. Please refer to the Guide to a Successful Paper Submission.
- Text generated from a large-scale language model (LLM) such as ChatGPT must be clearly marked where such tools are used for purposes beyond editing the author’s own text. While we will not be using tools to detect LLM-generated text, we will investigate submissions brought to our attention and will desk reject papers where LLM use is not clearly marked.
- If you have any concurrent submissions to CHI that are closely related – i.e., are based on the same study, artefact, or dataset – you must include an anonymized version of that submission to the concurrent submissions field. The same rule applies if your submission is built directly on work currently under review at other venues. Please see ACM guide on prior and simultaneous submissions.
- Please ensure that you use the correct template; a single-column format must be used for the reviewing phase. Use of different templates or formats may result in desk rejection.
- 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 or external links to datasets, code repositories, etc., will be desk rejected.
- Authors are encouraged to submit a paper of length proportional to its contribution. The average length of CHI papers is approximately 7,000–8,000 words excluding references, figure/table captions, and appendices. Submissions above 12,000 words (two standard deviations above the average) will be considered excessively long, given extra scrutiny in terms of contribution, and could be desk rejected. Submissions that are clearly not complete research papers (e.g., abstracts, work-in-progress, entire theses, extensive journal articles) will be desk rejected. Papers, where the length is incommensurate with contributions, will be desk rejected.
- Short submissions with a length of 5,000 words or less are strongly encouraged and will be recognised as a short paper submission. These papers will go through exactly the same review process although reviewers will be encouraged to ensure that evaluation expectations are commensurate with length and contribution size.
- Research Quality: papers must include enough detail that the research can be reviewed for research quality, given the norms and expectations of the relevant subcommittee (e.g. design papers will be judged as rigorous according to the expectations of the design community, not by the expectations of the computational interaction community). Papers that do not include enough detail to adequately assess research quality may be rejected.
- Reproducibility: Where relevant, authors are strongly encouraged to provide supplementary materials to support practices around research reproducibility as much as possible. Please refer to the requirements for supplementary materials below.
- Accessibility: Accessible submissions are essential for reviewers and are good practice. Authors are expected to follow SIGCHI’s Guide to an Accessible Submission. If you have any questions or concerns about creating accessible submissions, please contact the Accessibility Chairs at email@example.com early in the writing process (the closer to the deadline, the less time the team will have to respond to individual requests). Papers flagged as inaccessible by a reviewer will have to be reassigned. Note that subcommittees strive to match the best reviewer to each paper – the best reviewers for the work may not be able to review an inaccessible submission.
- Inclusivity: Authors should ensure their work and writing are as inclusive as possible; where this is not possible, it should be acknowledged. For example, authors should use gender-inclusive language when developing their papers (see e.g., HCI Guidelines for Gender Equity and Inclusivity) and consider what communities their work is – and is not – supporting, as well as their geographical context.
- Questions regarding the submission templates can be addressed by the Publications Co-Chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org. All additional questions regarding the paper submissions process should be directed to the Papers Co-Chairs at email@example.com.
Step 2. Prepare Supplementary Materials (Optional)
- All video and supplementary material must be anonymized. Non-anonymized supplemental materials will result in desk rejection of the entire submission.
- Video figures: Video figures do not have a specified time limit for the duration, although we recommend staying within 5 minutes. Details are available in the Guide to Submitting a Video.
- Other supplementary material: 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 main submission file. That is, the paper submission must stand on its own without the supplementary material.
Step 3. Select a Subcommittee
CHI typically 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 can state a preference of up to 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 via 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 words 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. Placeholder metadata (e.g. ‘abstract todo’) are not acceptable.
- Listed authors cannot be changed after the abstract deadline. No new authors can be added during revisions or for camera-ready. Making changes to the author list can be used as a method to manipulate the selected reviewers of a paper and can introduce conflicts with previously assigned reviewers. Thus, please make sure a) that you have added all authors including yourself, and b) that your PCS account email address is a valid one.
- Main Paper Deadline: Authors must submit the pdf of their paper, and related form data, before this deadline. No extensions will be granted. Any submissions showing ‘incomplete’ after the deadline will be deleted.
- Video and Supplementary Material Deadline: As described above, authors can submit optional video figures and any other optional supplementary materials before the deadline.
Details on the review process itself are described in the Papers Review Process.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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). Responsibility for 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 of accepted papers are not required to travel to CHI 2024 to publish their paper. Accepted authors must present their work at the conference synchronously in-person or asynchronously remotely. All accepted authors are required to upload a video presentation of up to 15 minutes in duration by the video presentation deadline. See technical requirements for video content at CHI. Authors who do not participate in presenting their work as described in this Call for Papers 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 presentations of accepted Papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.
