Visit the website or scroll below for committee and call for contributions http://www.nordichi2012.org

Over the years, Interaction Design has produced manifold contributions to the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) by elevating among other things the importance of user experience, design practices, creativity, and participation. By having design as part of the conference theme, NordiCHI 2012 wants to recognise the significant vitality of the design community in the Nordic region, including top-level education, world-class industrial and artistic design, and high cultural relevance. As new technologies continue to influence everyday perception of basic concepts such as time and space, sociocultural changes are taking place that demand HCI researchers to examine situations with an open mind. In the recent 18:4 issue of ACM Interactions, Liam Bannon illustrates "how HCI has moved from evaluation of interfaces through design of systems and into general sense-making of our world". NordiCHI 2012 embraces this explorative yet down-to-earth challenge of designing interactive systems for human practices that are still in the making.

NordiCHI 2012 accepts contributions in several categories. The technical program is the backbone of the conference, inviting original, high-quality long and short papers. Other submission categories include demos, posters and videos; design cases; and industrial experiences. All of these will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Proposals may also be submitted for tutorials, workshops, and the doctoral consortium.

Conference topics include but are not limited to:

- Adaptive and adaptable systems
- Affective computing
- Ambient intelligence
- Artistic and aesthetic aspects of interaction and interface design
- Design cases
- Design methods
- End-user development
- Evaluation methods
- Group and organisation interfaces

FULL AND SHORT PAPERS

NordiCHI 2012 invites original papers that move the field of human-computer interaction forward, be it through the advance of theory, methodology, or practice. Papers are required to be of the highest international standard. NordiCHI aims to be a multidisciplinary forum for exchange of the latest results, coming from and combining the social, the technical, and the aesthetic.

Full papers must present original work that significantly contributes to research and practice of Human-Computer Interaction in its broadest sense. They should demonstrate validity, novelty over the literature, benefit to the field, or otherwise make a contribution that matters. Short papers contribute brief and focused contributions. Both full and short papers will be published in ACM's Digital Library.

Full papers must be up to 10 pages; short papers up to 4 pages. Papers must be anonymised and formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI Publications Format. Submission should be made electronically through the conference paper submission and reviewing system. NordiCHI 2012 is an international conference and contributions are welcomed from all parts of the world. However, the official written and spoken language of the conference is English.

For further information, please contact the chairs at program@nordichi2012.org

Submission site http://precisionconference.com/~nordiCHI

Submission deadline for full and short papers: 30th of April 2012


Notification of acceptance: 30th of June 2012


WORKSHOPS
Workshops offer an informal environment for attendees with common interests and diverse perspectives to engage in rich discussions around works in progress or new areas of research and practice. NordiCHI 2012 invites workshop proposals addressing basic research, applied research, new methodologies, emerging application areas, design innovations, and HCI education. The goal of the workshops is to generate ideas that might give the NordiCHI community new ways of thinking about well-travelled themes and topics or that might suggest new promising directions for future work.

Workshops are held the day before the start of the conference and can be full or half-day in length. We will give preference to workshops that focus on community building and communal knowledge creation rather than structured miniature paper presentation sessions.

The proposal should be no longer than 1500 words and should detail:

- Title and duration
- Workshop theme and goals
- Outcomes of the workshop
- Relevance to the field
- Intended audience
- Organisers' names and backgrounds
- Expected number, balance and selection of participants
- Description of activities planned
- Needed facilities

For further information and submission of workshop proposals, please contact the workshop chairs worktut@nordichi2012.org.

Submission deadline: May 25, 2012
Notification of acceptance: June 15, 2012
Deadline for submission of papers to workshops: July 20, 2012
Notification of acceptance of papers to workshops: August 10, 2012


TUTORIALS

Tutorials offer participants the opportunity to extend their knowledge into new areas of expertise, to explore new communities of practice and to learn about specific concepts, methods and techniques from recognised experts. Tutorials may be half-day or full day sessions. NordiCHI 2012 invites tutorials focusing on new and emerging areas, methods and technologies or experimenting with new forms of instruction and innovative perspectives in an HCI context.

Proposals for full or half-day tutorials should limit the description to 500 words and should detail:

- Title and duration
- Intended audience
- Theme and goals
- Description of activities planned
- Prior experiences and evaluations of the tutorial.
- Needed facilities
- Organisers' names and backgrounds

For further information and submission of tutorial proposals, please email the tutorial chairs at worktut@nordichi2012.org
Submission deadline: May 25, 2012
Notification of acceptance: June 15, 2012

DEMOS POSTERS AND VIDEOS
Posters, videos and demos give participants the opportunity to show new and interesting ideas in human-computer interaction concepts and technology. We invite submissions related to the conference theme of 'Making Sense Through Design'.

Demos
Demo submissions are for working prototypes, devices and systems that focus on the conference themes and HCI in general. We welcome submissions from industry, research, and design. Like the video submissions, any demo submissions may feature work that has been published previously so long as this is indicated in the submission. A demo proposal is composed of two parts:

1. A short description of the system, max. 2 pages, formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI Publications Format.
2. A one-page interaction plan, describing how the working system is going to be used at the conference, including spatial and other requirements.

Demo presentations are given in two formats:
A – accepted demos will be displayed during the interactive events session at the conference.
B – authors will be given the opportunity to present a short preview for a wide audience at the conference.

Presenters must supply all equipment necessary for the demo. Internet access will be available, but presenters must contact the organisers about this before the conference. Shipment of equipment is under the responsibility of the presenters.

Posters
Poster submissions allow authors to submit research that has not yet reached an appropriate level for a paper. Poster submissions should include a brief description of related research, and a clear description of the work along with future work plans. A poster submission should contain:

1. A short description of the work, max. 2 pages, formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI Publications Format.
2. A rough design of the poster.

Poster presentations are given in two formats:
A – accepted posters will be displayed during the interactive events session at the conference.
B – authors will be given the opportunity to present a short preview for a wide audience at the conference.

Videos
Video submissions should focus on topics of interest to HCI researchers in relation to the conference theme. Videos can contain presentations of research prototypes, future innovations or user studies. Videos may be work that has been published previously. Please highlight any prior publication of the video content in your submission. We also welcome submissions that complement a paper. A video submission should contain:

1. A short description of the work, max. 2 pages, formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI Publications Format.
2. A mandatory video (max. 5 minutes, 2 – 3 minutes is usually appropriate).
Accepted videos will be presented in the interactive events session at the conference.

Please direct questions regarding demos, posters, or videos to demopostervideo@nordichi2012.org.

Submission deadline for posters, videos and demos: July 13, 2012
Notification of acceptance will be sent out on August 20, 2012


DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM
The doctoral consortium is a full day session taking place on Sunday 14th October 2012. It is intended for Ph.D. students working in the field of human-computer interaction. The doctoral consortium is an opportunity to present issues of concern in the doctoral studies, meet fellow Ph.D. students, and get extensive feedback from the session co-chairs and other participants. It is primarily intended for students in the "middle" of their PhD studies (you have started your study, but it is not too late to make changes based on feedback).

Submit a 2-4 pages paper in ACM SIGCHI Publications Format describing your PhD project. Please also submit a resume (CV) and a letter of recommendation from your supervisor. Students accepted will be asked to read at least two other submissions, and should be prepared to give feedback to those students during the consortium.

For further information and for submissions, please email the doctorial consortium chairs at dc@nordichi2012.org

Submission deadline for Doctoral Consortium: 10th of August 2012
Notification of acceptance will be sent out on August 25th, 2012.

DESIGN CASES
Design cases will present on-going or finished designs relating to human-computer interaction in its broadest sense. We in particular invite designers that feel on the fringe of traditional academic conferences to submit their work. Design cases can include artistic experiments, demos, digital artefacts, reality-based interaction, technological bodies & interaction design, or media art experiments

There are two submission options:

A. Describing the case on 2 to 6 pages in the ACM SIGCHI Publications Format. This description will enter the ACM digital library. You may supplement the submission with any digital material of plans or designs that may help understand your contribution.

B. A (documentation of) an artistic or design experiment (to be part of the exhibition and catalogue not to be part of the ACM library). You should submit 1) a short (precise) description of your ideas - the conceptual and formal considerations as well as your references to other work or ideas that has inspired you (if any). 2) A video documentation of your work - to be exhibited at the conference 'Walk In Cinema', if your proposal is accepted.

At the conference, the Design Cases sessions will be a mixture of presentations and contributions to the 'Walk In Cinema'. Each contribution will get 20 minutes of presentation (including discussion). When you prepare your presentation, concentrate on aspects that you could not capture adequately in your paper submission. This could mean, for example, that you build your presentation around a demonstration of a key interactive feature of your work.

Please direct questions about Design Cases to design@nordichi2010.org.

Submission deadline for design cases: July 13, 2012
Notification of acceptance will be sent out on August 20, 2012


INDUSTRIAL EXPERIENCES

Industrial experiences allow people working in industry to present their work on human-computer interaction in its broadest sense. The aim is to gather and share experiences from industry with peers in industry and academia.
Industrial experiences can be related to any phase of concept or product development, for example

- How information on users is used to take decisions in various phases of the development cycle (design decisions, strategic product decisions, implementation decisions, etc.)
- Process or tool descriptions and real life implementation of the processes
- Experiences with the creation of concepts and real products (using an HCI approach)
- User studies or usability tests
- Design of products
- Case studies
- Any other HCI related activity related to product creation

All submissions will be reviewed by peers from industry and academia. The reviewing will emphasize general interest for the NordiCHI audience and how well the presentation enlightens the realities in industry, rather than strict academic criteria.

Industrial experiences will be allocated up to 20 minutes presentations slots and can be presented as talks, videos,, demos (and given as such) or in a dedicated poster area. Whatever the format, industrial experiences will be presented in a dedicated Industrial Experiences session at the conference.

Submissions should contain:
A short description, 2-4 pages, conforming to the ACM SIGCHI Publications Format. If the presentation contains other material (e.g., videos or demos), the submission can be supplemented with visuals or textual descriptions of these.

Presenters must supply all equipment necessary for their presentation (e.g., demo), beyond a projector and computer. Internet access will be available, but presenters must contact the organizers about this before the conference. Shipment of equipment is under the responsibility of the presenters.

Please direct questions regarding Industrial experiences to industrial@nordichi2012.org

Submission deadline for Industrial experiences: July 13, 2012

Notification of acceptance will be sent out on August 20, 2012
