CHI Proceedings Formats

CHI Proceedings Formats

Page last updated: 6 January 2019.

These templates should be used for submitting Papers only. For other submission types, please see the CHI Extended Abstracts format (below). Since ACM’s release of a new set of templates, there have been a number of difficulties associated with preparing manuscripts especially with the Word templates.  Authors can use the new ACM SIGCHI Proceedings Format for their submission (including camera-ready). There are three (3) options available:

  • LaTeX template – Download the LaTeX (Version 1.56) ZIP file, and use the sample-sigchi.tex and samplebody-conf.tex files. The community has put together a set of tips and guidelines on typesetting your CHI paper using LaTeX, which can be found here.
  • Overleaf project – For online collaborative writing, authors can create an Overleaf project using this template. However, the SIGCHI LaTeX templates are not yet included in that project. After creating an Overleaf project, download the LaTeX templates, upload the sample-sigchi.tex file, and set it as your main file for compilation.
  • Microsoft Word template – Download and use the Interim template (see preview PDFalong with the ACM Fonts. Authors are not required to use the macros and mark-up features for the submission.

Camera-ready format:  In converting text from older templates to the latest template for the camera ready, authors will NOT have to cut content to fit within a certain page limit. There should be no loss of content when switching templates, except to address reviewer concerns of course. Microsoft Word authors are strongly encouraged to work on improving the accessibility of their submissions, using recommendations found in the Guide to an Accessible Submission. There will be some guidance and assistance from volunteers to help you through this process and to answer questions on using the new template during camera-ready preparation.

CHI Extended Abstracts Format

This template should be used for submitting to the workshops, courses, case studies, doctoral consortium, panels, interactivity, SIGs, late breaking work, alt.chi, and student competitions venues. Please see the CHI Proceedings format (above) for submitting Papers. You can use one of the following three (3) templates:

    • LaTeX template – Download the LaTeX ZIP file, and use the sample-sigchi-a.tex file. You will find it in the samples folder. The community has put together a set of tips and guidelines on typesetting your CHI paper using LaTeX, which can be found here.
    • Overleaf project – For online collaborative writing, authors can create a project using this Overleaf template.
    • Microsoft Word template – Please download and use the updated Word template (see the PDF preview) along with the ACM Fonts. This file will not change between the submission and camera ready, and it includes instructions on how to use the template. Authors are not required to use the macros and mark-up features for the submission. Make sure to install the ACM Fonts and verify that your submission is using the correct fonts (Linux Biolinum for body text). Pro tipbefore entering your own text into the template, please first delete the figures and tables. When adding your own figures, make sure to do that in the left column and not in the right column.

Updated on Dec 28: If you need more space for your extended abstract, feel free to remove the CCS Concepts and ACM Reference Format sections from your paper (we have removed them from the latest version of the Word template). In LaTeX, remove CCS from the main body and use the following command to remove the Reference Format ‘\settopmatter{printacmref=false}‘.

Authors are strongly encouraged to work on improving the accessibility of their submissions, using recommendations found in the Guide to an Accessible Submission.

Digital Accessibility

The CHI conference committee is asking all authors to work on improving the accessibility of their submissions. Please see the Guide to an Accessible Submission for more details.
