NordiCHI 2022 welcomes submissions for panels. The panels track seeks to offer conference attendees an opportunity to participate in a dialogical space to discuss novel areas, controversial ideas and hot topics in human-computer interaction. In a panel, assumptions about a topic are productively challenged, diverse perspectives are represented, and the format encourages engagement and dialogue. A panel should seek to arrive at new understandings through dialogue and interaction amongst and between panel members and audience members. Ideally, a conversation or discussion in a panel interweaves with the very fabric of the rest of the conference, sparking conversations (but not necessarily controversies) in coffee breaks and amongst conference participants.
Panels are 60-90 minute sessions that involve significant interaction with audience members. A Panel can come in many forms, but often the sessions include a group of experts invited to debate a topic or theme, enact some aspect of their expertise, or reflect on and compare their diverse experiences. Panels should also include involvement from the audience, often through questions and answers, voting or critique of the experts’ presentations, and so forth.
• Submission deadline: June 1st, 2022 (16h CET)
• Author notification July 1st, 2022
• Camera-ready deadline August 15th 2022 (16h CET)
The Panel proposal must be submitted as a single PDF file via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 1st, 2022. The proposal must have the following two distinct sections, each written according to the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format:
The Extend Abstract part of the submission material consists of a 4-page extended abstract in the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts format. The extended abstract should include the title; the name and affiliation of the organizer(s), as well as each proposed invited participant. Only include the invited participants who have confirmed their participation. Within the limits of 4 pages you should summarize the lessons or experiences you hope to convey in the session. This should include the topic(s) to be covered, as well as contrasting or controversial perspectives on the topic(s). Your extended abstract must stand alone; readers must be able to get something out of the abstract even if they do not attend the interactive session.
Along with your extended abstract, you must develop a session proposal of up to 8 pages. This proposal will not be distributed but will be used by the reviewers to judge the suitability of your concept as an interactive session.
Thus, it should address a number of issues, including:
Panel submissions will be juried. Co-Chairs will invite external members to evaluate proposals. We plan to include 2-3 Panels in the NordiCHI’22 program. Panels present ideas that are novel, topical, controversial, or engaging for other reasons to the audience, inspiring the audience to respond and further elaborate the ideas. The review criteria will consider the extent to which the session proposes:
Accepted panel submissions will be included in the ACM Digital Library as part of the NordiCHI 2022 Adjunct Proceedings.
