Message from Andrew and Roel, Co-Chairs
The alt.chi venue evolved as an alternative for papers alongside CHI's traditional full paper track. With alt.chi we aim to bridge the gap between topics already prevalent in the papers program and new topics of research that may be seen as controversial, exciting, or emerging. The alt.chi co-chairs invite papers on the basis of recommendations from the papers program committee and other venue chairs. Criteria include submissions that seek glimpses of the future of our field, buck traditional dogma, or perhaps ignite sparks of controversy — all encouraging a lively debate at the conference. Through invitation to alt.chi, the CHI program committee encourages the continuation of study in these new provocative areas. The alt.chi papers will be published on the Extended Abstracts CD.

At CHI 2005, alt.chi will consist of three sessions: 10 invited presentations, and a Late Breaking Results "Madness" session. In their alt.chi presentations, presenters will give a brief overview of their work, after which the audience will have the opportunity for discussion and a chance to influence research directions in the field.

We very much look forward to seeing you at alt.chi in Portland!
