What is a CHI Journals Presentation?

A CHI Journals presentation gives authors the opportunity to get increased exposure for their paper by presenting it at the conference while also benefiting from the greater continuity of the journal review process. CHI Journals invites selected authors of papers accepted to either ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction (ToCHI) or ACM Transactions on Social Computing (TSC) to present their work at the conference. Historically, we also have accommodated presentation slots for papers published at other HCI journals, but invitations to such papers depend on the availability of space.

Submissions to CHI Journals are by INVITATION ONLY. Invitations will be sent by the CHI Journals chair ( to the corresponding author of papers. Invited authors are then required to submit details on their paper to PCS. All unsolicited submissions will be rejected.

Invitations are usually made within one year of a paper being accepted by the journal. For example, papers being invited for presentations at CHI 2022 will normally have been accepted between November 2020 and October 2021. Authors should also be aware that each ToCHI and TSC paper can be presented at only one ACM conference.

Invited authors who would like to present their papers at CHI 2022 must make a complete submission in PCS. Requirements for presentation at the conference will also be sent by email to authors and available in the Guide to a Successful Presentation. Any submission that is incomplete or that does not fulfill the requirements for presentation at the conference will not be considered for inclusion in the program.

After the notifications, authors will be asked to submit a 30-second video preview summarizing the paper; this is optional, but highly encouraged, as it will increase the visibility of your paper before, at the conference, and in online video platforms. Authors are strongly encouraged to work on improving the accessibility of their video. Technical Requirements and Guidelines for Videos at CHI detail how to make videos accessible.

Additional PDF Accessibility Advice

  1. A trial version of Adobe Acrobat Pro is available, and it will let you tag papers (
  2. Speak to your co-authors to see if they have the resources to help make your paper accessible. Learning how to do PDF tagging will benefit our community in the long run.
  3. If the above steps are not possible, you can send the PDF to the Accessibility Chairs at However, please refrain from sending us your PDF too early. We want to reduce repeated efforts and if your paper needs to go through TAPS again, then it will need to be retagged. Send the PDF after you are confident no more corrections will need to be made.
