CHI Proceedings Format

CHI Proceedings Format

These templates should be used for submitting Papers only. For other submission types, please see the CHI Extended Abstracts format (below).

Initial Submission format: 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, 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 Archive format: Authors can use the CHI Archive Format that has been used in previous years for their initial submission. If their paper is accepted, authors will need to reformat their manuscript 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 for their initial submission. There are three (3) options available:
    • LaTeX template – Download the LaTeX (Version 1.54) ZIP file, and use the sample-sigchi.tex and samplebody-conf.tex files.
    • 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 layout.docx file. Authors are not required to use the macros and mark-up features for the initial submission.

Camera-ready format: If their paper is accepted, authors must prepare final camera-ready versions using the new ACM SIGCHI Proceedings Format*, to be included in the ACM Digital Library. For Microsoft Word users, this requires authors 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. 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.

*Since ACM is still fixing issues with the new Microsoft Word template, this page will be updated with links and instructions once it is provided.

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 (please note: the template is still being finalized by 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 manuscript 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 for their initial submission. There are three (3) options available:
    • LaTeX template – Download the LaTeX (Version 1.54) ZIP file, and use the sample-sigchi-a.tex and samplebody-conf.tex files.
    • Overleaf project – For online collaborative writing, authors can create a project using this Overleaf template.
    • Microsoft Word template – The template is being finalised by ACM. Please download and use last year’s format file. Authors are not required to use the macros and mark-up features for the initial submission. Authors ar strongly encouraged to work on improving the accessibility of their submissions, using recommendations found in the Guide to an Accessible Submission.
