On behalf of the CHI 2005 Technical Program Committee, we look forward to working with you this year – whether an aspiring author, mentor, reviewer, or participant!

We invite submissions for a wide range of contributions, summarized in the table below. Changes for 2005 include a new 40-minute Panel session, an exciting Interactivity Chamber, and a revamped Tutorial program. Returning venues include the Student Competition, a new and highly regarded event at CHI2004, along with our Papers, Late Breaking Results, Workshops, and SIGs.

Continuing SIGCHI’s efforts to engage with related disciplines, we are pleased to host the fifth installment of the Design Expo, and will feature a unique Development Consortium that will look at SIGCHI’s role in serving an increasingly multidisciplinary membership. Check the detailed Calls for Participation to learn more.

Finally, do note that the Technical Program is highly competitive in all categories, with most acceptance rates ranging from 10 to 50%. If you need a mentor for your Design Expo Case Study, Interactivity Session, Late Breaking Result, Paper, or Workshop submission, we encourage you to seek one right away. And, if you have never submitted to CHI, or are uncertain which venue would be most appropriate for your submission, please don’t hesitate to contact me at

While there are no special areas this year, we encourage you to think about how your work could relate to the conference theme of using technology to foster a sense of safety and security in our communities – and look forward to discussing your ideas and interpretations in Portland!
