<nettime-ann> [Austin] Fwd: alt.chi 2012 Call For Participation


.
Dear dorkbot community,

I am writing to announce that CHI, the largest interaction design
conference in computing machinery will take place this year in Austin,
Texas, May 5 - 10.  As part of these efforts, we are seeking
contributions that help us re-think the very nature of interaction
design via art, DIY projects, theories, etc.  I am including below a
call for participation, please do feel free to circulate widely as
this is an exciting space in which to get folks to look closely at
work (conceptual or otherwise) and it's right in your backyard.

alt.chi 2012 Call For Participation

alt.chi 2012 proudly continues the tradition of bringing substantive,
thought-provoking, original work to the premiere conference on
human-computer interaction (CHI), through an alternative approach.
alt.chi formed with the CHI program committee’s recognition that
sometimes innovative and insightful work goes unrecognized through the
standard process of review.  Particularly where methodologically far
afield, or critical of accepted practices, promising contributions may
be systematically overlooked.  Therefore, as part of a commitment to
bring forth the year's best work on human computer interaction, the
program committee provides a procedural intervention in the
conventional selection process: alt.chi.

alt.chi is appropriate for submissions that prove difficult to assess
through mainstream procedures, whether for reasons of methodology or
content.  Forum discussion allows dialogue about the potential
significance of a submission, and juried selection insures that high
standards for excellence are maintained.  alt.chi hosts some of the
most audacious and insightful presentations at the conference.  This
is the avant-garde of CHI.

We invite the submission of bold, compelling, critical, and innovative
works that challenge or re-imagine human computer interaction research
and design.   alt.chi 2012 is methodologically inclusive and accepts
reports, analyses, designs, and systematic inquiries –  whether
quantitative, qualitative, or both.  Especially encouraged are works
that speak to the conference theme of “experience” through
explorations of areas currently outside the center of the field.
alt.chi 2012 is an opportunity to re-shape the conversation by
introducing a vibrant intellectual community to a new way of doing
work.  We invite you to change the game.

Submission and Review

* Submission deadline: 9 January 2012
* Submission review: 16 January - 3 February 2012. Submitted papers
will be openly discussed by members of the CHI community in an online
forum.  Authors are welcome and encouraged to invite particular
discussions about their work.
* Notification: 10 February 2012
* Camera-ready deadline: 17 February 2012.  Papers are archived as
Extended Abstracts on DVD and in the ACM Digital Library.
* Submission Format: 10 page paper in Extended Abstract Format with
100 word abstract, a brief submission history of the paper, and an
optional 5 minute video. The work should be submitted to the alt.chi
submission system, which opens mid-December.  English review for paper
drafts is available. See http://chi2012.acm.org/cfp-alt-chi.shtml for
details.
