Call for participation:


CHI 2007, 28 April - 3 May, 2007, San Jose, California, USA

Submission deadline: October 20, 2006

"Interaction (n): a cyclic process in which two actors alternately
listen, think, and speak."
    - Chris Crawford, from The Art of Interactive Design

Computer-Human Interaction is grounded in action. There is a limit to
how well we can understand any interactive system without
experiencing it first-hand. Interactivity at CHI is your opportunity
to share your work directly with your colleagues in a high-visibility
setting, which combines both a hands-on demonstration during the
entire conference and a presentation in the technical program.

The CHI 2007 Interactivity exhibition is where the CHI community can
experience the year's most exciting interactive works. If you've got
a working prototype, device, or system to bring to San Jose, we want
to know about it!

Accepted submissions will get a high degree of exposure and
visibility at the conference, including:

- High-profile demonstration space integrated with the conference
Commons area
- Presentation in the technical program
- Extended abstract (6 pages) included in conference companion and
the ACM Digital Library

The requirements for originality are less strict for Interactivity
than for papers and notes - therefore it is possible to submit work
that has already been published elsewhere, or is also submitted to
CHI 2007 (e.g. as Papers or Notes) as long as you make this clear in
the submission.

An international jury will select the works to be exhibited, based on
reviews from the CHI communities. The CHI 2007 Interactivity jury
members are:

Durrell Bishop, Luckybite
Karmen Franinovic, Zero-Th Association
Elizabeth Goodman, UC Berkeley School of Information
Florian 'Floyd' Müller, Georgia Tech
Naohito Okude, Keio University
Katie Salen, Parsons The New School for Design
Atau Tanaka, Sony CSL Paris
Nina Wakeford, INCITE University of Surrey
