Late-Breaking Work

The Late-Breaking Work category is an opportunity to present new and exciting contributions that outline tentative findings, early research ideas and technical work, novel conversations toward future work as well as theoretical or methodological discussions that are currently developing in ongoing work. 

We welcome a broad range of submissions around a diversity of topics and contribution types:

  • An original technology, technique or design in the early stages and/or with or without an evaluation.
  • Selected results from ongoing qualitative or quantitative studies with various levels of analysis.
  • Early stages of research with reflections, important implications and/or (methodological) considerations.
  • Novel discussions and/or analysis of existing or ongoing work that adds a new perspective.
  • Open work that invites feedback or community engagement around next steps, implications to research, applicability and/or novel approaches to analysis and collaborations.

Important dates

•    Submission deadline: June 1st, 2022 (16h CET)

•    Author notification July 1st, 2022 

•    Camera-ready deadline August 15th 2022 (16h CET)

Submission

  • Submissions should be fully anonymised
  • All materials must be submitted electronically to PCS by the deadline. In PCS, first click “Submissions” at the top of the page, from the dropdown menus select “SIGCHI”, “NordiCHI 2022” and the track you want to submit to.
  • Submissions can be up to six pages long (excluding references) in the ACM standard single-column format - see submission guidelines
  • Submissions should be as close to publication-ready as possible, since authors will have a limited time to make changes post acceptance. Papers that require major revisions may not be accepted.

Selection Process

LBW submissions undergo double-blind peer-review by a selected committee and will be discussed by the committee to constitute the program. Given the shorter timeline the submissions will only receive short feedback. The criteria for evaluations are as follows:

  • Contribution to NordiCHI 2022: Will this research stimulate interesting conversations and feedback among NordiCHI attendees? Is there a compelling reason for this work to be LBW and not a full research contribution this year or later?
  • Significance: How important is the problem, question or topic the LBW examines? Is there an audience at NordiCHI 2022 that would find this relevant and/or engaging?
  • Originality: How does this work relate to previous work and discussions within the area? Does it offer a novel contribution or compelling alternative perspective?
  • Validity: How well are the chosen methods described and justified in the submission?
  • Written presentation: How clear, understandable, and targeted is the writing?  

Each submission will undergo review and the final decisions will be made through assessment and discussions in the LBW subcommittee.

Presentation Format

Accepted LBW will be presented as posters during the NordiCHI 2022 conference. Details regarding presentation and print will be provided with the acceptance notification.
