This year marks the introduction of the Work-in-Progress venue.
Work-in-Progress submissions provide an opportunity for both
practitioners and researchers to present a concise report of new
findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant
to the HCI community.
Like interactive posters of the past, Work-in-Progress focuses more on
visual presentation and discussion between the author and attendees
around the poster. Accepted work will be published as 6-page papers in
the CHI 2006 Extended Abstracts and displayed at the conference as a
Poster display during a special Highlights on Work-in-Progress session.
This submission category aims to attract attention from a broad range of
disciplines covering a spectrum of topics and methodologies. The
following topics are especially encouraged: multidisciplinary work,
social impact of technology, design research, human-centered design and
innovation, and cross-cultural design. We encourage submissions from all
of CHI's communities: design, education, engineering, management,
research, and usability.
Submissions to this track can include, but are not limited to, the
following types of work:
* Evaluation of systems, techniques and other phenomenon relevant to
HCI - this can include either experimental or other types of evaluation.
* Reflections from Practice - lessons learned, broad conclusions, or
principles derived from practice, backed by thought-provoking and
* Design Briefings - accounts of the design (rationale, process,
outcomes and evaluation) of an innovative application, user interface,
* Methodologies and Tools - new methods, processes, techniques, and
tools for use in interactive system design and development.
