Quick Facts about NordiCHI’18 Papers

NordiCHI’18 Papers are archival publications of original research in the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI).

Changes and important details

There is one major change in the paper submission category. All research papers, previously submitted in two categories, long and short, are now in the same category. We are soliciting papers of variable length, from 4-10 pages, excluding references. Authors are encouraged to submit papers whose length is proportional to their contributions, rather than trying to “fill up” a 10-page submission. Reviewers will be instructed to weigh the length of the paper in making their assessment of the contribution.

  • Submission deadline: 15 April 2018 (5:00pm PDT, hard deadline).
  • Online submission: Via PCS Submission System.
  • Notification: Thu 1 June 2018.
  • Camera-ready final submissions to PCS: 26 August 2018 (5:00pm PDT, hard deadline).
  • Submission format: Anonymised research papers of 4 to 10 pages, excluding references, in the SIGCHI Paper Format 2018.
  • ACM classification keywords: Use the ACM Computing Classification System (1998).
  • At the conference: All presenters will have 15 minutes slots, 10 to present the paper and 5 for questions.
  • Archives: Papers are archived in main conference proceedings available in the ACM Digital Library.

NordiCHI’18 Papers

NordiCHI 2018 invites original papers that move the field of human-computer interaction forward, be it through the advancement of theory, methodology, or practice. We invite submissions of long and short papers of the highest international standard. NordiCHI aims to be a multidisciplinary forum for exchange of the latest results, coming from and combining the social, the technical, and the aesthetic. We especially welcome submissions that address trends within HCI in the perspective of the conference theme: life cycles, in a broad sense. We encourage theoretical, philosophical and practical considerations, and reflections over the past, present and future of the field.

All papers must present original work that significantly contributes to research and practice of Human-Computer Interaction in its broadest sense.

Submissions are made electronically through the conference paper submission and reviewing system PCS, which will be opened one month before the paper submission deadline. Please note that the deadline is firm and will not be extended. The papers are peer reviewed in a double-blind review process.

Authors must present accepted papers at the NordiCHI 2018 Conference, and register for the conference for at least one day. Accepted manuscripts appear in the Proceedings of NordiCHI 2018, which will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

Submission of video material to accompany papers is encouraged. For accepted manuscripts, such video material will be published as source material in the ACM Digital Library.

NordiCHI anonymisation policy is the same as for the CHI conference and it states: authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper, as noted in the submission instructions (Note: changing the text color of the author information is not sufficient). Also, please make sure that information that may identify you does not appear in the document's meta-data (e.g., the “Authors” field in your word processor's “Save As” dialog box). Further suppression of identity in the body of the paper is left to the authors' discretion. We do expect that authors leave citations to their previous work unanonymised, so that reviewers can ensure that all previous research has been taken into account by the authors. However, authors are encouraged to cite their own work in the third person, e.g., avoid “As described in our previous work [10], …” and use instead “As described by [10], …”
