The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). CHI – pronounced 'kai' – annually brings together researchers and practitioners from all over the world and from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and positionalities, who have as an overarching goal to make the world a better place with interactive digital technologies.

Our assumption at the moment is that CHI 2022 will be structured in two phases: (1) a 2-day Web-Exclusive phase occurring on April 13–14, followed by (2) a Hybrid-Onsite phase from April 30–May 6 in New Orleans, LA.

Moving to a Revise and Resubmit Review Process for CHI 2022

Moving to a Revise and Resubmit Review Process for CHI 2022

As an effort to improve paper quality, increase equity, and reflow the reviewing process, CHI 2022 Papers Chairs, Technical Program Chairs, and General Chairs have replaced the paper rebuttal mechanism with a Revise and Resubmit (R&R) reviewing process. R&R is a two-round reviewing process. At the end of a first review round, each article will receive one of the three following decisions: Accept with minor changes, Revise and Resubmit, or Reject. A R&R decision gives authors the chance to revise their submission and go through a second review round. We intend to improve the quality of CHI publication by giving authors an explicit revision cycle within the review process. R&R is also based on informed decision making and a balance of responsibilities for a fairer review process.
