Information for Participants

When: 9 a.m., Sunday, April 23, 2006

Where: CHI 2006 in Montreal, Hyatt Regency Hotel

Note that CHI will be held at the Palais des Congrès, but the workshops will be at the Hyatt Regency nearby [map]. There will be registration for both the conference and the workshop at the Hyatt (signs will direct you to the correct location within the Hyatt).


The schedule is here. We're at the Hyatt Regency, the room opens at 9:00, we can come and set up and meet each other then. We'll start the actual session at 9:30 and end at 5:45.


As I mentioned, the good news is that we have a lot of really good papers and outstanding participants, so I'm looking forward to an interesting discussion. The bad news is that we're going to move through presentations very quickly in order to have any time for discussion.

I've posted your papers on this web site and ask that you read them before the workshop. Then, I will ask each of you to give a brief (3 minutes!) talk to introduce yourself and your thoughts on the workshop topic. Your talk can assume the audience has seen your paper.

Your (brief) talk should include:

So please email me the (2-3) slides for your talk by Tuesday April 18, in powerpoint if possible. I will concatenate them all into one file and run it on a timer, to help keep us on schedule. If you'd rather speak informally, I can insert a title slide with your name, affiliation, and coauthors.


If the room will accommodate it (still trying to settle this), you can also bring a poster about your work, to post in the workshop room and discuss with participants, to convey more than you can in the 3-minute time slot.

Questions to think about ahead of time

Are [here].


CHI does not publish the actual workshop papers, so that inclusion in the workshop does not preclude us from publishing our proceedings elsewhere. Please start thinking about whether we want to do this—it could be a special issue of a journal, a book, or a section of the SIGCHI Bulletin—and we'll discuss at the end of the workshop. I think we have a very strong collection of papers so far.
