Selecting a Subcommittee

Selecting a Subcommittee

Overview

CHI 2022 anticipates more than 3,000 Papers submissions. The review process needs to handle this load while also providing high-quality reviews, which requires that each submission is handled by an expert Associate Chair (AC) who can recruit expert reviewers. The organization of the CHI program committee into topical subcommittees helps achieve this. See the description of the Papers review process for a detailed explanation of the responsibilities of the ACs and Subcommittee Chairs (SCs).

Authors should examine what constitutes a contribution to SIGCHI and recognize that there are many different types of contribution possible for a SIGCHI paper.

Notes on Composition of Subcommittees

Once abstracts are submitted, individual subcommittees may grow or shrink based on the number of probable papers for that subcommittee. As in previous years, the paper chairs will be undertaking a survey to detail the diversity for each subcommittee. Please see, for example, this blog post on Diversity of the Program Committee for CHI 2020 which was published in July 2019.

Authors are required to suggest a subcommittee to review your submission. This page provides guidance on choosing the appropriate subcommittees for your submission.

List of the Subcommittees

Sixteen subcommittees are listed and described below. Each has a title, short description, and an indication of who will Chair and serve on the subcommittee and if a subcommittee consists of multiple tracks. Subcommittees have been constructed with an eye to maintaining logically coherent clusters of topics.

Subcommittee Selection Process

When you submit a Paper, you can designate up to two appropriate subcommittees for your submission. In the vast majority of cases, the subcommittee that will review your submission is one of the two subcommittees that you proposed. In cases where the Papers Chairs and/or Subcommittee Chairs recognize that your submission will be reviewed more thoroughly in another subcommittee, a submission may be transferred from one subcommittee to another. If a submission is transferred to another subcommittee, this will happen in the first week of the process, before reviewers are assigned; i.e., transferring will not affect a submission’s review process, it will only ensure that it receives the most complete, fair set of reviews.

Below, you will see a list of subcommittees and descriptions of the topics they are covering, the name of each SC, and the names of the ACs serving on each subcommittee. It is your responsibility to select the subcommittee that best matches the expertise needed to assess your research and that you believe will most fully appreciate your contribution to the field of HCI.

CHI has traditionally supported diverse and interdisciplinary work and continues to expand into new topics not previously explored. We recognize that as a result, you may find more than two subcommittees which are plausible matches for your work. However, for a number of reasons, it will be necessary for you to select no more than two target subcommittees, and you should strive to find the best matches based on what you think is the main contribution of your submission (examples of papers that are considered good matches are linked below for each subcommittee). You can also email the SCs for guidance if you are unsure (an email alias is provided below for each set of SCs).

Note that the scope of each subcommittee is not rigidly defined. Each has a broad mandate, and most subcommittees cover a collection of different topics. Further, SCs and ACs are all seasoned researchers, experienced with program committee review work, and each is committed to a process which seeks to assign each paper reviewers who are true experts in whatever the subject matter of the paper is. ACs recognize that many papers, or perhaps even most papers, will not perfectly fit the definition of their subcommittee’s scope. Consequently, papers will not be penalized or downgraded because they do not align perfectly with a particular subcommittee. Interdisciplinary, multi-topic, and cross-topic papers are encouraged and will be carefully and professionally judged by all subcommittees.

In making a subcommittee choice you should make careful consideration of what the most central and salient contribution of your work is, even if there are several different contributions. As an example, let’s say you are writing a paper about Ergonomic Business Practices for the Elderly using Novel Input Devices. Perhaps this is a very new topic. It covers a lot of ground. It’s not an exact fit for any of the subcommittees, but several choices are plausible. To choose between them, you need to make a reasoned decision about the core contributions of your work. Should it be evaluated in terms of the usage context for the target user community? The novel methodology developed for your study? The system and interaction techniques you have developed? Each of these evaluation criteria may partially apply, but try to consider which is most central and which you most want to highlight for your readers. Also look at the subcommittees, the people who will serve on them, and the kind of work they have been associated with in the past. Even if there are several subcommittees that could offer fair and expert assessments of this work, go with the one that really fits the most important and novel contributions of your paper. That committee will be in the best position to offer constructive and expert review feedback on the contributions of your research.

Each subcommittee description also links to several recent CHI papers that the SCs feel are good examples of papers that fit the scope of that subcommittee. Please look at these examples as a way to decide on the best subcommittee for your paper – but remember that these are just a few examples, and do not specify the full range of topics that would fit with any subcommittee.


User Experience and Usability

This subcommittee is suitable for papers that extend the knowledge, practices, methods, components, and tools that make technology more useful, usable, and desirable. Successful papers will present results, practical approaches, tools, technologies, and research methods that demonstrably advance our understanding, design, and evaluation of user experience and/or usability. The focus is on usability and user experience of widely used technologies with contributions being judged substantially on the basis of their demonstrable potential for effective reuse and applicability across a range of application domains or across a range of design, research, and user communities.

Learning, Education, and Families

The “Learning and Education” component of this subcommittee is suitable for contributions that deepen our understanding of how to design, build, deploy, and/or study technologies for learning processes and in educational settings. Topics may include (but are not limited to) intelligent tutoring systems; multimedia interfaces for learning; learning analytics; systems for collaborative learning and social discussion; technology-supported learning; teacher/educator-facing designs; and tangible learning interfaces. These may be suitable for a variety of settings: online learning, learning at scale; primary, secondary, and higher education; informal learning in museums, libraries, homes, and after-school settings.

The “Families” component of this subcommittee is suitable for contributions that extend design and understanding of how children, parents, and families interact with technology. Topics may include (but are not limited to) a wide range of domains that span health and well-being, social, psychological, and cultural phenomena.

While submissions will be evaluated on their impact on the specific application and/or group that they address, papers must also make a substantial contribution to HCI. In reflecting on their paper’s potential contribution to HCI, authors may wish to examine past proceedings; see the Contributions to CHI page.

This subcommittee is intended to handle many of the papers that went to and were reviewed under a split of Specific Applications Areas in CHI 2018 and earlier.

Accessibility and Aging

This subcommittee is suitable for contributions related to the design or study of technology for people with disabilities and/or older adults. Accessibility papers are those that deal with technology design for or use by people with disabilities including sensory, motor, and cognitive impairments. Aging papers are broadly categorized as those dealing with technology design for or use by people in the later stages of life. Relationships with technology are complex and multifaceted; we welcome contributions across a range of topics aimed at benefiting relevant stakeholder groups and not solely limited to concerns of making technology accessible. Note that if your paper primarily concerns interactions with health data or with healthcare providers, then the Health subcommittee is probably a better fit, whereas papers reflecting on how technologies are used and/or designing interfaces and interactions suited to specific needs are better suited for this subcommittee. We strongly suggest that authors review this Accessible Writing Guide in order to adopt a writing style that refers to stakeholder groups using appropriate terminology. Submissions to this subcommittee will be evaluated in part based on their inclusion of and potential impact on their target user groups and other stakeholders. This subcommittee balances the rigor required in all CHI submissions with awareness of the challenges of conducting research in these important areas. This subcommittee welcomes all contributions related to accessibility, and aging, including empirical, theoretical, conceptual, methodological, design, and systems contributions.

Design

This subcommittee is suitable for papers that make a significant designerly contribution to HCI. Papers submitted here include novel designs of interactive products, services, or systems that advance the state of the art; creation and evaluation of new design tools, processes, methods, or principles, including those that explore alternatives to scientistic ways of knowing; work that expands the scope of design thinking within HCI research or practice; work that applies perspectives from other disciplines to inspire or to critique the design of interactive things; or work that advances knowledge on the human activity of design as it relates to HCI research or practice. We particularly encourage contributions of new designs that broaden the boundaries of interaction design and promote new aesthetic and sociocultural possibilities. Examples of design approaches include : industrial/product design, visual/information design, participatory design, user-centered design, interaction design, user interface design, user experience design, service design, critical design, and design fictions. Finally, this committee encourages submission of work that addresses design research issues such as aesthetics, values, effects (such as emotion), methods, practices, critique, constructive design research, and design theory.

Blending Interaction: Engineering Interactive Systems & Tools

This subcommittee focuses on the development of novel interactive systems and “enabling” contributions, which are resources that facilitate the development of future interactive systems and inspire future interface design explorations. Interactive systems combine multiple technical components of hardware, algorithms, artificial and human intelligence, and interaction techniques. Their contributions will be judged by how well they enable and demonstrate novel interactive capabilities. “Enabling” contributions include datasets, tools, libraries, infrastructure, and languages. These contributions will be judged by how well they support the construction, engineering or validation of interactive systems and how well they can be shared among the research community to design future interactive systems.

Critical Computing, Sustainability, and Social Justice

This subcommittee welcomes HCI research connected to themes of social justice, global sustainability, critical-reflective research practice, artful and aesthetic experiences, and critical computing-—all in pursuit of meaningful alternatives to the status quo. We encourage papers that explore how computing and computing research contributes to fair and just relations between individuals, social groups, and whole societies, locally and globally—all in the pursuit of fulfillment and flourishing. Submissions should feature any combination of one or more of the following:

  • Commitments to diversity/inclusion, sustainability, survivance, and social justice
  • Communication of perspectives from marginalized and unheard persons, populations, Nations
  • Attention to structural processes of power and control that produce and reproduce racialized, gendered, sexist, ableist, and colonial/postcolonial forms of violence, vulnerabilities, and exclusions
  • Challenges to and/or new analyses of received knowledge and paradigms including critical and progressive accounts of alternative epistemologies, decolonial practices and theories, indigenous knowledges, and Majority Worlds perspectives
  • Environmental justice, inter-generational justice, more than human worlds, technology and its implications in the climate crisis
  • Explications of values and needs from diverse users and their communities
  • Low-energy or zero carbon technologies and ways of life
  • The pursuit of artful experiences and aesthetic ways of being and doing
  • A robust and open politics
  • The prominent use of philosophy and other theory
  • The fostering of empathy, imagination, appreciation, and perception as community values

The subcommittee is epistemologically pluralistic, welcoming of a range of perspectives, approaches, and contributions that might take interpretivist, empirical, activist, political, ethical, critical, and/or pragmatic approaches to both societal challenges and how HCI research frames itself in relation to them. As a part of that commitment, we also champion diverse forms of scholarly expression in the CHI community, such as critical essays, research through design, practice-based research, design fictions, and commentaries.

Computational Interaction

This subcommittee invites papers whose primary contribution improves our understanding on how to design interactive systems underpinned by computational principles of human-computer interaction, including applications of such systems. Typical papers study or enhance interaction underpinned by, for instance, machine learning, optimization, statistical modeling, natural language processing, control theory, signal processing and computer vision. Beyond simply applying such methods, they seek new ways to describe, predict, and change interaction and guide the design of interactive systems that rely on computational methods or demonstrate applications of such systems. Core contributions typically take the form of novel theories, methods, techniques, and systems for computational approaches in HCI, as well as reports of rigorous empirical studies of interactive systems supported by computational approaches. Contributions will be judged by their rigor, significance, validity, and practical or theoretical impact.

Accepted papers contribute to our understanding of computational methods in human use of computing. The subcommittee is not limited to algorithms but welcomes a broad range of contributions, including but not limited to:

  • Data set or analysis
  • Empirical study, including replication studies
  • Method
  • Theory and modeling
  • Design
  • Commentary or essay

An excellent paper advances knowledge of computational approaches in human-computer interaction. Even in algorithmic contributions, the human viewpoint is central and kept visible throughout. In particular, an excellent paper 1) addresses a well-scoped phenomenon in human use of computers; 2) rigorously introduces and argues for the chosen approach, including assumptions both about humans and the computational approach, as well as differences and similarities with previous work; 3) explicates the claimed contribution in terms of benefit or disadvantage to humans; 4) provides adequate evidence; and 5) offers a balanced discussion of the contribution, including generalizability and limitations. In addition, critical viewpoints and negative findings are welcome. For example, a critical commentary of social implications of machine intelligence, an empirical insight to algorithmic threats, or a failed replication study are valued as contributions in this subcommittee.
