CHI Proceedings Format

CHI uses two formats for all submissions: Proceedings and Extended Abstracts.

ACM SigChi Proceedings Format

This template should be used for submitting Papers only. For other submission types, please see the CHI Extended Abstracts format (below). This year, final camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be prepared using the new ACM SIGCHI Proceedings Format (the actual template is named ACM_SigChi) to be included in the ACM Digital Library. For Microsoft Word users, this requires the installation of macros that allow the document to be marked up for document processing and accessibility. There are a number of difficulties associated with preparing manuscripts using this new template, and ACM may be updating the template and workflow. As such, authors can choose either of the below options for their initial submission.

  • Previous CHI format: Authors can use last year’s format for their initial submission. If their submission is accepted, authors will need to reformat their paper into the new ACM SIGCHI Proceedings format prior to the camera-ready deadline. Authors using this format are strongly encouraged to work on improving the accessibility of their submissions. Please see the Guide to an Accessible Submission for more details.
  • New ACM SIGCHI Proceedings Format: Authors can use the new ACM SIGCHI Proceedings Format (the actual template is named ACM_SigChi) for their initial submission. Authors are not required to use the macros and mark-up features for the initial submission. If their paper is accepted, authors will need to enable the macros and mark-up the document as required by the template prior to the camera-ready deadline. If the mark-up tools are not used, authors are still strongly encouraged to work on improving the accessibility of their submissions, using recommendations found in the Guide to an Accessible Submission.

CHI Extended Abstracts Format

This template should be used for submitting to the workshops, courses, case studies, doctoral consortium, panels, interactivity, SIGs, works-in-progress, alt.chi, and student competitions venues. Please see the CHI Proceedings format (above) for submitting Papers. This year, final camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be prepared using the new ACM SIGCHI Proceedings Format (the actual template is named SigChi_a) to be included in the ACM Digital Library. For Microsoft Word users, this requires the installation of macros that allow the document to be marked up for document processing and accessibility.
