Call for participation

NordiCHI 2020 welcomes the submission of posters. Poster submissions allow for the presentation of work in progress, where a level of maturity that makes it valuable to present to the NordiCHI community has been reached. Whilst the broader work may not be completed, the contents of the poster submission should still make a clear contribution to broader HCI knowledge, whether realised or while under development with promising initial steps.

Posters present a valuable opportunity for longer, in-depth face-to-face discussions of the work, in a way that may not be possible with papers. We welcome posters where the work and authors will benefit from this interaction, such as those reporting late-breaking and cutting edge work, emergent new technologies, preliminary and on-going work, in any of the conference themes.

We especially welcome submissions that address trends within HCI in the perspective of the conference theme: Shaping Experiences, Shaping Society.

Submission format

Please note that ACM has recently modified its Publication Workflow and Article Templates for the submission and publication process (see Authors must write and submit their papers using the single-column "Review Submission Format".

Please refer to the Instructions for Authors for detailed guidance on the selection of the correct templates, preparation of your manuscript for review and publishing the final version of your paper.

Submissions must have the following components:


The paper should be 3 to 4 pages in single-column format, excluding references. It should be self-contained and clearly describe the novelty and distinguishing ideas of your work, even for readers who are not able to view the related poster at the conference. It should also include a brief description of related research and a clear description of the work along with future work plans.


Authors should also upload the poster to be presented at the conference as a still image with at least 1500 x 1200 px.

Selection process

To ensure that we get as late-breaking work as possible, posters will be highly selective an juried track, so authors should not expect in-depth reviews.

Technical setup at the conference

Accepted posters will be presented during the conference in the posters area.

The organisers will provide a poster stand able to hold an A1-sized poster in any orientation. We aim to have the posters visible on all days of the conference.

Poster authors are expected to be present at their poster during dedicated poster sessions. Poster presenters need to print poster themselves, as well as attach it to the poster wall as instructed before the conference.


Extended abstract will appear in the Proceedings of NordiCHI 2020, which will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Images will be published as source material in the ACM Digital Library.

Authors of accepted papers must present at the NordiCHI 2020 Conference, and register for the conference.


We hope you will join us in Tallinn in October 2020!
